• Even her youngest sister was married before her. So what did she gain as an “older single”?
• He was haunted by the demons and dysfunction of his upbringing. How did he escape the sadness?
• Everyone called their profoundly deaf daughter a “miracle child.” But it took more than miracles to give her perfect speech.
Challenges. We all know that they bring out our potential, force us to grow, and build our spiritual and emotional muscles.
But they’re hard!
One of the most effective ways to accept – and surmount – our own challenges is to meet others who have faced their difficulties and nisyonos with courage, grace and emunah. And that’s the reason C. Saphir’s LifeLines series is so beloved ... and so important for us to read.
Here are authentic accounts of men and women who have dealt with life’s trials and come out stronger, wiser, and, usually, happier as well. The Postscripts that follow each story give us an extra level of insight by offering a “where are they now?” look at the heroes and heroines or a behind-the-scenes peek at the feedback C. Saphir received.
Whether we welcome challenges as growth opportunities or try our best to wish them away, we know that we will all have to face them sometimes. LifeLines offers us an engaging and absorbing means of strengthening ourselves so that we, like the people in these stories, can emerge empowered.
