BLOG TOUR: Going For Broke--How To Suffer Well by Shannon Medisky

Author: Shannon Medisky
Publisher: Independent
Pages: 61
Genre: Christian Nonfiction/Devotional
Synopsis: Hardship hurts and suffering sucks.
But there’s very important work—and rewards—we need to be occupied with in the middle of it all.
Suffering has a way of stretching us beyond ourselves. It prompts us to stretch outside of our current comfort zones. But no matter how we feel, we don’t have to be buried by our challenges and circumstances. Instead, we can recognize that God has planted us right where we are for a reason: It’s time to get growing.
Here’s how.

Review: I was very impressed by the positive attitude of the author throughout this book. She reminds the reader that suffering is a part of our human experience, but we don't have to let it break us. She provides anecdotes from her own life, as well as talking about the suffering of such Biblical figures as Noah and Moses, to show how you can grow closer to God during your times of suffering. 

The author has a very unique writing style which makes the reader feel this book is written just for them. I will definitely be on the lookout for more from her in the future.

Rating: Four stars
