When I was going through an ugly divorce, and as my father was passing away, friends and family would ask, "How do you cope and maintain your sanity?" Of course I would get upset and feel the same pressure as anyone else, but I knew I must try to maintain my composure so that I could work through my problems and interact with those around me, especially the ones directly involved with the situation. At one time or another, every person is faced with some type of dilemma; even during your worst times and most unpleasant situations, you realize that there are millions of people that daily face much worse conditions and situations than you are. I hope this book will be an encouragement to each reader and give hope and confidence to believe and know that bad times do not last forever. Cultivate determination to work hard, and always do your best. God has given everyone some kind of talent or gift, and He will never leave you. You must never lose sight of the basic truth that no matter how bumpy and hard life is and no matter what hard times you are facing God will get you through it.
