A professional Christian counselor for 20 years, author Donna Gibbs draws on her experience helping clients get unstuck, sharing secrets for building resilience that will change readers’ experience of suffering. She offers practical tools and effective coping strategies to deal with whatever life throws their way so they can move through suffering–and come out stronger on the other side.

My thoughts: BECOMING RESILIENT is a wonderful read that is a self help book that guides you through how to mange suffering. All of us at some point suffer disappointment, rejection, injustice or loss. It really is not a matter of if but when. Gibbs writes in such a way that empowers you to take on whatever life throws your way with practical steps and a biblical perspective. Each chapter has a step by step way to embrace and overcome whatever it is that you struggle with. I really like all the scripture/verses throughout this book. This book is a great read for anyone who has suffered a loss and needs encouragement to accept an move forward. ** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. **
