NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgan James Publishing (www.Morgan-James.com) releases the soul-soothing guidebook of loss, hope, strength, and healing, "Unexpected: Navigating Life's Unforeseen Turns," by Ken L. Roberts.
Life happens. Life shatters. Life shapes us. Adversity doesn't discriminate. Sooner or later, adversity strikes everyone in different forms: the loss of a loved one, a bad investment, an illness, and more.
Ken L. Roberts is no stranger to adversity. His own journey through the sudden death of his wife, Debbie, of 25 years, as well as his experience in pastoring members of his congregation for over 30 years through their own times of adversity, Ken is well acquainted with weathering adversity.
"I've observed a variety of ways people have responded to difficulty and as a result, have been shaped by it," he says. "Some become hardened, others more humble. Some become cynical, others more grateful. Some grow to resent life; others discover a deeper purpose to life."
After 25 years of marriage, the trajectory of Roberts' own life took an unexpected turn. On her way to a women's bible study on March 9th, 2004, Debbie's earthly journey ended suddenly after a car accident. "Unexpected: Navigating Life's Unforeseen Turns" was born of Roberts' journal entries following his wife's death and describes the days following and the ways he navigated through this difficult season of his life.
Through personal examples, dreams, and reflection questions, Roberts uses his own experience as a pastor and a widower, and the wise words and experiences of others, to help lead readers to:
- Navigate their questions and respond positively to sacred moments for meaningful formation
- Find healing for their wounded souls and feed their souls by keeping their dreams alive
- Embrace God's goodness and faithfulness
- Assess if they are already dead and just waiting to be buried, or still living life fully alive
- Learn how to wisely navigate through adversity, and, in the process, become the person they were meant to be
"Unexpected" compassionately guides readers in preparing for certain adversity, so that when it strikes, they can wisely navigate through the pain, heartache, disappointment, and grief. "It's not a question of if life shapes us," Roberts remarks, "only a question of how life will shape us." Don't miss your chance to allow life to shape you into who you hope to become!
