Bounce: Learning to Thrive through Loss, Tragedy, and Heartache by Aaron Früh has an expected publication date of October 3rd, 2017 by Baker Books. Whether due to the loss of a job, home, or family member, the pressures of stress, or even feeling the weight of the world’s problems on our shoulders, it’s easy to get knocked down flat in life. And when that happens, we have two choices: we can give in to our difficult circumstances by embracing our feelings of resentment, disappointment, indecisiveness, and self-pity. Or we can learn how to bounce back stronger, wiser, and happier than before.Drawing on his own painful experience of losing his father as a boy and facing the recent economic upheaval, FrŸh shares biblical insights and practical strategies for building our resilience so that we can experience loss not as a monster that comes to steal our joy but as a mentor that comes to form our character. He gives readers hope that the painful season they are going through is not the end–it is just the beginning of a brighter season to come.

He and his wife, Sharon, have four children and three grandchildren and live in Alabama.
My thoughts: Aaron writes with such truth that is all based on scripture. He gives you a strategy for coming back from defeat. When you are faced with disappointment or loss, turn to your bible. This book is full of personal stories and scripture that is easily explained. A must read if you have faced a loss or disappointment.
