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 are faced daily with 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; even when life's road is bumpy and hard, remember that when you get to whatever hard time life faces you with, God will get you through it.
