40 Gifts of Hope: Encouragement in times of sickness and suffering - Paula Umana
by Paula Umana
The unpredictable path of life can bring us face to face with great challenges and suffering. How do we handle these challenges and the suffering that can be so unpredictable? Can we find meaning in suffering? What choices do we have in the turmoil of great challenges? What can we learn from people who have faced great suffering? Let’s find out and answer these questions by taking a heart-felt journey of love, hope and inspiration in Paula Umana’s new book “40 Gifts of Hope.”
In this inspiring journey, Paula shares her story of survival as a quadriplegic as a mother of five and a former professional tennis player. Her story is interspersed throughout the book with other inspiring stories, including those experiencing cancer, multiple sclerosis, neurological disease, stroke, inflammatory disease, addiction, sexual abuse and autoimmune disease.
Each person shares their journey from victim to victor and their thoughts on how you can do the same to strengthen your faith in God. Paula delights in sharing her story and thus bringing comfort to those who are in the “eye of the storm."
