About Chapters 1-7

Chapter 1: Restoring Momentum

 When your world has been rocked, the only thing you may want to do is pause. That's OK for a while. But life is beckoning you to move forward, conquer your fear, and replace panic with peace.  Focus on doing something each day.  Celebrate that!  Victory requires action.  Practical answers and biblical truths will prompt you to take that first step to press onward.

Chapter 2: Restoring Perseverance

No one is immune from suffering.  Agony is as much a part of life as joy.  But God calls us to persevere.  Even when life's weight seems a little too heavy, God is at work.  He has a plan and a purpose in all this mess. Let's see how God uses trials for your good and how you can persevere even when life throws you those painful curve balls. 

Chapter 3: Restoring Joy

Many times, you cannot control your circumstances, but you can control your responses to your circumstances.  You can choose joy!  Say what?!  In life, pain is mandatory, but suffering is optional, depending on how you respond.  How do you avoid those joy killers that reduce the delight, wonder, and pleasure found in the glory of each day?  Let's lean in together and discover those answers!

Another thought from Cindy...

"Serving others is an act of worship. You are not called to insulate your gifts and talents but to infiltrate them into the lives of others."
