Description of book Joan M. Blake discusses leaving her native island of Trinidad and Tobago and embarking on the greatest mission of her life: going to America alone. Throughout her life as a wife and mother, and through relationships with family, friends and acquaintances, she shows by her personal testimonies, how life deals out times of great joy, as well as crises. When such crises come, it is so easy to crumble under one's storms and turn inward to loneliness, anxiety, fear, anger, un-forgiveness, and bitterness. It is only by having an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, God's Son, who has all the answers, and by committing every detail of one's life to Him, that one can enter the narrow gate of faith and find rest. Resting is standing on the promises of Jesus, putting one's trust in Him, who gives one the ability to overcome emotional upheavals and the turmoil of life, and to find comfort, hope, and purpose in the midst of them.
