Mansfield, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/14/2014 -- If one common thread links human beings together, it is certainly that all people – at some point in their lives – experience a hardship or setback, such as a death in the family, a divorce, a troubled relationship or financial difficulty.
No one is more aware of that fact than author Dell Staggers, whose anticipated new book, ‘Through The Storm’ is a manual for soldiering on through good times and bad.
Contending that it is not what happens to a person, it is how they respond to it, Stagger takes readers through a 30-day devotional and inspirational journey to overcome struggles and navigate through feelings of sadness, grief, loneliness or fear.
“It doesn’t matter your race, creed, color, culture or economic status – everyone will relate to this book and be changed by it,” says Staggers. “Often, situations can shake our faith or make us doubt who we are – they can even make us feel unsatisfied or incomplete. However, there are two things that we must understand immediately – God loves us, and we must be grateful for what we have.”
Gratitude and faith are at the heart of ‘Through The Storm’. Staggers provides consistent advice on identifying the problem yet not letting it consume daily thoughts, and threads a powerful underlying message throughout the text: gratitude can overcome any other feeling – even negative ones.
“Whether you’ve lost someone, or you’re going through an identity crisis or you’ve recently battled an illness – being grateful and feeling gratitude is ultimately the most powerful thing you can do,” says Staggers. “Aside from believing and trusting in God, it’s the most life-changing feeling a person can have.”
Continuing: “Let’s face it – we’re always either in the midst of a storm, or coming out of one. Determination, faith and patience are traits that victorious people must possess to get through the trials of life. Tough times aren’t forever – you will win if you don’t faint.”
Filled with grace and brimming with love and acceptance, ‘Through The Storm’ is a compellingly written testament to the power of human beings’ will to survive, and a stirring reminder of God’s love.
‘Through The Storm’ will be available by June of 2014.
