Item Description...
Tragedies won't stop happening, and problems will always be a part of life-just take a look at the evening news to be sure. But so many of us spend our lives either trying to escape these unavoidable experiences or reeling from their effects, waiting to be free of suffering before we allow ourselves to be happy. To make matters worse, self-help gurus fill our brains with ways to "make" happiness happen. But what if our happiness is already here-buried deep within the experiences of our ordeals themselves? What if God intends for the tragedies and difficulties of our lives to be the route to our ultimate joy? What if overcoming our ordeals is not actually as important as how we respond to our struggles? Then true joy can only be achieved through that hardship and how we choose to respond to those traumatic situations Each chapter offers practical everyday philosophy on how to apply the "positive potential" of problems to the seven most common catastrophic life situations through Benguhe's personal reflections and his "Seven Steps of Serenity," plus compelling anecdotes of everyday people who found joy through enduring life's greatest tragedies. * A self-help book that's not about the self but about loving and respecting humanity. * Instead of criticizing our nature and behavior, it explains it! * Not preachy, judgmental or self-righteous. * Analyzes tragedy without blaming it on the erroneous and destructive myth of "dysfunctional" people. * An author who doesn't claim to be a guru, simply an observer of God's genius.

Publishers Description
Reveals the positive potential of life's 7 most common catastrophes because sometimes the worst of times are the windows to the best.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Truly positive  Dec 17, 2009
While this is yet another "positive potential of problems" book, Chris Benguhe gives a much more genuine perspective for being positive during problems. His seven steps to serenity also protect us from a number of problem traps--like letting a bad experience lead us on a downward spiral of more bad experiences. I'm grateful to him for writing page 37 and reminding us that God's love for us is there to prevent us from being overcome by life's mire and mayhem. The book arrived on my doorstep, the same day that I received some very bad news. Perfect timing!
Wonderful book--change of pace from typical pablum  Aug 1, 2008
Benguhe's book offers a refreshing break from the self-help pablum that dominates the field. Kudos!
Great book!  Jul 18, 2008
