Life can sometimes be incredibly hard. Sometimes we find ourselves at the bottom of a pit of despair, dejection, and possible defeat. The death of those close to us, economic concerns, sudden unemployment, past or present abuse, divorce, addiction, major depression, or other major life-shaking events can lead us to the breaking point. Situations of hardship, loss, disappointment, and extreme hurt can leave us all physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually drained and unable to function. With nowhere to turn and no apparent way out, we cry, we scream, and we plead, "God help me!" This is the author's personal testimony based upon his own life experienced, observations reflection, and training in chaplaincy, ministry, counseling, and life. Here the author shares the feelings and insights gained in times of such extreme challenge as well as spiritual and practical steps toward climbing out of the pit before starting over or moving forward in life. Neither theological nor psychological, this is the work of one who has been there in his own life and in the lives of others. This book is for those seeking hope, meaning, purpose, and the hand of God to help them climb out of the darkness.

No matter what your situation, you can start over.
