Many times in our lives we go through major difficulties that we may or may not bring on ourselves but either way it requires a strength that may leave us questioning the importance and purpose of our very existence. Many of these problems are easily dealt with while others may seem insurmountable. However, if we look back at some of the most challenging times, we realize that in fact, weathering these storms has made us a better, stronger, more compassionate person than we were before. They also prove to show us just what we're made of and how very resilient we can be when necessary. There are examples of such storms within the cover of this book and how the people weathering them were able to come through not only with their "e;selves"e; intact but maybe even better for their efforts.
