Publisher's Description

Spiritual Strategies for a
New Beginning


Loss has many names --
divorce, death, illness, bankruptcy, depression,
disappointment, betrayal, job loss, and more.
And as we experience these losses, we sometimes wonder how we will survive.

Whether you are reeling from the blow of an immediate crisis or in need of help to sustain you for the long haul, you will find spiritual strength and practical strategies on every page of this book.

Purposefully designed to meet you where you are on any given day of need, this book is divided into two parts:
PART 1 offers emergency tactics to help you keep your head above water when a huge wave of pain threatens to pull you under. PART 2 reveals seven strategies to help you navigate the stormy waters and make it safely to a peaceful shore.

Some days, all your heart can take in may be one simple thought. At those times, you can easily flip through the pages and find...

encouraging Bible verses and inspirational quotes -- set off, centered, and easy to find.
At other times, you may need to soak up...

practical help and biblical teachings.
Or...
share in stories of others who have also gone through pain.

These are here for you as well.

When difficult times come -- and they come to us all -- it helps to know that

you are not alone,
that you will survive,
and that there will be an end to your crisis.

This book is dedicated to you, as you find that hope and help to survive your bad year.

    I so appreciate the solid, biblical wisdom found in Nancie's book. Her one bad year encompassed the unwed pregnancy of her adopted daughter, and relinquishing her newborn granddaughter to another family through adoption. But she doesn't focus the book on her own story. Instead, she brings in glimpses of grief and loss from people in all kinds of situations. She strikes just the right balance in sharing these stories though- they help readers understand her points in real-life scenarios, but they don't steal the show from the messages of truth she shares from the Bible itself. The entire book is peppered with Scripture passages, references and examples, always used appropriately in ways that shed new light both on God's Word and how it applies to our personal daily lives.

    You can tell a lot about the depth of the book by looking at the sources in the Endnotes, and this book is rich with so many of my favorite authors, from classic dead people (may they rest in peace) like C.S. Lewis, John Donne, Amy Carmichael, William Shakespeare, Robert Browning, T.S. Eliot and George MacDonald, to contemporary writers like Eugene Peterson and John Eldredge.

    This is an engaging book, with life-changing power within its pages. Even if you haven't had a bad year, it is still practical training for what most of us will likely experience at one point or another. I highly recommend it!

    Everyone faces pain and losses in life. This book states it will help you through one bad year, but its really a guide to assist you whenever trials comeno matter how serious or simple. I highly recommend this book.Nancie lists a number of crises people have faced, such as deaths, divorce, financial loss, murder, depression, health issues, and teen pregnancy. No matter what you face, this book can help you cope and conquer. Rather than allowing these blows to shatter your life, you can survive and let them help you grow.The book is divided into two parts. The first section gives emergency tactics for dealing with devastating experiences, with many personal examples. The second presents seven strategies to help you heal and become whole. These are practical steps that involve growing closer to God and trusting Him with everything. Anyone should be able to find aid here for themselves and to share with others. This would be a good paperback to keep handy.Meaningful Scriptures relating to the topics are scattered throughout the book, along with pull quotes that summarize key points. Each of the ten chapters closes with questions for personal reflection that focus on a particular Bible passage, and actions to take, along with a New Beginnings Resource that offers pertinent Bible verses. Some also list recommended book titles for further reading. Throughout the chapters she quotes many authors who have penned profound words on these topics.The whole book can be distilled to these words: Let go and trust God. This is not a pat answer, but it is a conscious choice. Surviving One Bad Year equips the reader to do this successfully. Thanks so much, Nancie, for exposing your own pain and journey and giving your readers a great example to follow.

    I was encouraged by Nancie's vulnerable sharing about her challenging time. It was especially meaningful as I've been struggling with chronic pain. Her wise words would help anyone at any time since we all have struggles and challenges, but for those of us who feel like it's a more-than-average difficult time, her message really hits home. The ideas she shares are applicable for every struggle we face. If you flip through this book, you don't really benefit from the depth of meaning and encouragement it offers. I liked how Nancie included both spiritual insights and very practical ideas like taking good care of yourself. Sometimes we just need to have someone give us permission to do the things that should come naturallybut in times of stress we don't. She has included a Personal Reflection section at the end of each chapter that could easily be used by a group. And there's also a New Beginnings Resource list of insights; plus recommended reading. I've already recommended this book to others. Have it on hand for your inevitable bad year.

    When I picked up this book and read the title, I thought "A bad year? How to survive only one bad year? What if you have had several?" I think the author must have though that as well when I read the beginning chapter.This frank way of looking at many different horrible things that have happened to other people's lives and yet how they survived, overcame and did not lose their faith in God was wonderful to read. I sat down to read it in the evening and just could not put it down. The stories in the books are heart wrenching, death, mental illness, cancer, dementia, teen pregnancy, things you hope will never happen to you, but only someone else. This small guidebook will help you or someone you care about through Surviving One bad year.....There was one story in particular that was very painful to read, the details were vivid and I struggled with that, it is probably worse for me as it was a mother, it was a true story and I could feel her grief and agony in the story and in the details, it just paralyzed me for awhile.This book is one of those books though I will think of when I see a friend or someone hurting as it is a great guide for dealing with the pain and heartache of the unthinkable. "Thanks to Howard Publishing for providing my copy of Surviving One Bad Year"
