In our current economic climate, more people than ever are dealing with financial challenges, layoffs, and professional setbacks. Add to that the timeless problems of broken relationships, health crises, and various forms of personal disappointment and loss, and it’s hard to find anyone who isn’t experiencing some kind of setback that has thrown their life plans for loop.
uthor and life coach Valorie Burton’s Where Will You Go from Here? (WaterBrook Press, June 21 2011) gives readers the tools they need to successfully navigate the unexpected turns of life. They’ll find encouragement, wisdom, and strength to press on through the challenges and emerge not only victorious, but with a stronger, more resilient character than ever before.
The process begins with the Five Commitments:
- I will not feel sorry for myself.
- I will not stare at the closed door.
- I will dig deep to unearth all the courage I need.
- I will direct my thoughts. My thoughts will not direct me.
- I will choose to believe that all things work together for good.
With these guiding principles, Burton guides readers into a new way of thinking about their setbacks, helping them watch for the big picture of what God is doing in their lives. As they find their way onto a path that was always meant for them–whether it’s the path they came from or a more authentic path they’ve always longed for–readers will gain a set of skills that empower them to be more resilient, now and in the future.
