This motivating, practical guide opens with Lisa's powerful story of surviving a mail bomb that exploded in her lap, an event that made headlines around the world. "Whatever difficulties you face," she encourages readers, "I believe you are made for more." Lisa shares from her own life, stories of facing birth defects, limiting labels as a young woman, an unwanted divorce, a criminal attack, infertility, and broken dreams. With every story, in every chapter, she delivers biblical truths and practical help for overcoming hardship and loss. In a time when more readers face financial peril, uncertain work lives, and feelings of fragility in a fast-paced and overwhelming world, Lisa's message shows how to not only get through a day, but catch a new vision for a bold and bright life.
