Becoming Resilient by Donna Gibbs

Becoming Resilient: How to Move Through Suffering and Come Back Stronger

from  Everyone suffers disappointment, rejection, injustices, and losses, perhaps even traumatic ones. The spiritual pain born of such suffering can paralyze us, leaving us broken inside and barely getting by with the motions of life. Whether we remain stuck or move forward is determined in large part by our resilience.

Concise and compassionate, Becoming Resilient takes our most common question when tragedy strikes--Why?--and replaces it with the healthier, more productive question, What next? A professional Christian counselor for 20 years, author Donna Gibbs draws on her experience helping clients get unstuck, sharing secrets for building resilience that will change readers' experience of suffering. She offers practical tools and effective coping strategies to deal with whatever life throws their way so they can move through suffering--and come out stronger on the other side.

My take : This book is a great place to start if you are grieving and you want to learn to be resilient in these type of situations.  God can help us through these times and we need to try not to get stuck in the why but to try to move on.  There are application questions that you can answer throughout the book to make the book more of a workbook than a how to.  This book helps with life.  

I received a review copy from Revell in exchange for my honest opinion.
