Books To Help You Become More Resilient
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is John 10:10:
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
What does it mean to live abundantly? What are some of the barriers that prevent us from living life to the fullest and how do we overcome them?
One key is learning how to bounce back from adversity and to be more resilient in every facet of your life!
This month, I’d like to spotlight two books that show us how we can bounce back from adversity and be more resilient when tragedy strikes.
Becoming Resilient: How To Move Through Suffering And Come Back Stronger by Donna Gibbs
Although God never planned for suffering to be a part of our lives, because of sin, pain, suffering and brokenness is now a natural part of the human experience. Unfortunately, most of us are not prepared for bad things to happen to us, and when they do – when tragedy strikes – we are ill equipped to deal with it.
Often, we fall into destructive patterns of thinking and behaving. We get stuck in our pain. We cope through denial or by overanalyzing the situation, believing that if we can find the answer to why the situation occurred, our pain will stop.
In Becoming Resilient, Donna Gibbs teaches us the skills we need to move through our pain. Her book shows us how to become unstuck and build the resilience we need to reframe our stories and see our pain from a different perspective – God’s perspective.
Each chapter contains victory verses to help us apply God’s truth to our lives and application questions to help us process the material that Donna is presenting.
In light of the events that are going on in the world today, Becoming Resilient is a timely and much-needed read for many people!
Becoming Resilient is available through Amazon.
Bounce: Learning To Thrive Through Loss, Tragedy, And Heartache by Aaron Fruh
Are you dealing with trauma in your life? Aaron Fruh wrote Bounce: Learning To Thrive Through Loss, Tragedy, and Heartache to help you rebound and bounce back stronger, happier, and wiser than before!
Bounce is divided into three sections. Part 1 shows us that we have been wonderfully designed for resilience, teaches us how to reframe our perspective of loss, and provides us with three questions that will help us to journey back from loss to the land of the living. Part 2 examines four resilience blockers – self-pity, disappointment, resentment towards God, and indecisiveness – and provides us with biblical wisdom, reflections, and challenges to help us work through them. Part 3 provides us with four ways to activate our comeback.
Bounce is filled with practical experiential and biblical advice that will help you to return from darkness to light.
Bounce is available through Amazon.
