Publisher's Description

Go "storm chasing" through the pages of the greatest Book ever written! What storm has blown into your circumstances? Are you—or someone you love—suffering from the trauma of plans that have been washed away, relationships that have been uprooted, or security that has been devastated? Many believers have been known to ask, "God, where are You in this storm?" or, "Lord, did You send this storm into my life?" Just what does a believer do during a stormy season? StormProof: Weathering Life’s Tough Times tackles these and other tumultuous questions.
Author Carol McLeod is a storm survivor—more than that, a victor—over infertility, depression, and cancer. She understands the spiritual, emotional, and physical challenges of the trials we face in our lives. A gifted Bible teacher, she provides "life preservers" of hope and faith through the eternal, practical wisdom found only in God’s Word.
By examining key storms in the Bible, and the lives of those affected by them, Carol guides you to uncommon comfort for your own storms, offering the shelter of hope, joy, and faith. In StormProof, you will step out of the boat to walk the waves with Peter, knowing that Jesus always comes to be with you in the midst of your storms; you will be rocked aboard a wind-driven ship with the apostle Paul, in danger of being smashed against the rocks, but be preserved by God’s power; you will watch the gathering storm clouds with Noah, holding on to faith in God’s purposes. You will also experience Jonah’s self-inflicted tempest while affirming God’s unconditional love, sit in silence with Job and ponder his questions about the greatest storm of testing, and huddle with the disciples as their boat is swamped by surging waves—only to hear Jesus’s eternal words, "Peace, be still." You will also hear about storms of harsh circumstances that others from recent history have encountered and overcome.
Storms are common in every season of life. Yet, for a believer in Christ, the damage such storms cause can be contained, depending on how we navigate their tumultuous waves. There is a way—a triumphant way—to encounter the fierce gales of life and then exit the tempests with strength and resilience. There is a definitive way to walk through the most devastating of circumstantial tornadoes and emerge with grace, empowered for the future. There is a way to be StormProof.

Editorial Reviews

As a youth, a wise man told me that when choosing companions for life’s journey, I should look for those fellow "soldiers" who had dented armor. Those with shiny and pristine armor would be of little help when it came to navigating life’s battles. Carol McLeod is one of those valiant warriors with dented, scratched, and scuffed armor. If you are seeking advice on how to survive the storms of life, you’ve found someone who knows firsthand what it means to not just survive them, but also to exit them better in all the ways that really matter.

StormProof: Weathering Life’s Tough Times might just be Carol McLeod’s best work yet. Why? Because this woman of God knows a thing or two about storms, having thrived in the midst of some of the worst of life’s tempests. I believe this book was birthed from a place of authenticity and revelation about biblical storms. A must-read for every believer!

Stormproof is a great reminder of God’s faithfulness through every life circumstance we encounter. As your spiritual meteorologist, Carol McLeod will give you a closer look at the eye of biblical storms so you can learn how to persevere through life’s downpours and be ignited with hope to see the rainbow at the end of them.
—Keri Cardinale
Worship leader, author, and radio host

Carol McLeod reveals a triple-layered, foolproof way to not only survive life’s storms, but also prevail and pioneer the way for others into places and spaces of stability and destiny: she highlights powerful biblical stories, testifies of her own navigation in troubled waters, and offers appropriate challenges to the reader to be anchored in the face of his or her own circumstantial cyclones. Whether you have just emerged from a storm or are still in the middle of one, StormProof is a must to help you safely navigate through the inevitable, sometimes violent, storms of life. There is always a way through, no matter what. Carol clearly defines that way.

We all have experienced storms in our lives. Maybe you are in the eye of one right now, hunkered down and wondering how you will survive.

Most of us have been through a major life storm—or soon will be and just don’t know it yet. In Stormproof, Carol McLeod gives you more than a life preserver; she shows you how to exercise the kind of faith to help you metaphorically walk on water—and also rise above the waves and beyond the clouds. There’s no guarantee you will avoid the wind and whitecaps, but you can grow wiser and stronger as you weather whatever life throws your way.

Stormproof: Weathering Life’s Tough Times by Carol McLeod is a unique look at the storms described in the Bible in order to find comfort and encouragement as we face our own difficult days. Carol offers an exploration of different storms and their causes, various ways to respond to them, and how all of this can be applied to our lives in a helpful way. There are penetrating questions encouraging us to cry out to God and allow the Comforter to minister to our hurting souls in times of trouble. This book delivers a guide to become "more captivated by the Savior than by the storm." Hope and healing await all who read this compelling book.
—Kim Erickson
Author, His Last Words and Sorrow & Survival: A Mother’s Guide (September 2019)

I picked up Carol McLeod’s book StormProof hours after a storm erupted in my life. Thankfully, God had been preparing me for it, but Carol’s sound teaching and convincing faith in God’s Word helped me stay grounded with wisdom and reminded me to set anchors of hope in His promises. If not for the comfort of God’s presence through the well-timed messages in this book, I could easily have felt flattened by the winds battering at my heart! Read this book if you are weary of fearing inevitable storms in your life. Read it if you not only want to survive your storms, but also grow stronger because of them. Read this book if you need assurance of God’s comfort in the midst of this world’s chaos!

Like most people, I don’t enjoy storms, but after reading Carol McLeod’s book Stormproof: Weathering Life’s Tough Times, I am better equipped to weather any turbulence that interrupts the tranquility of my life. Resonating off each page is the victorious voice of my friend Carol, head held high, facing directly into any adverse winds, full of faith and hope. Her years of treasure hunting in the Word of God have equipped her to write this book, but its real power lies in the fact that she hasn’t simply studied hurricanes from the security of a safe harbor but has also experienced them as a sailor navigating the storms of life, with Jesus Christ Himself co-piloting her boat. This book will empower you to triumph in tough times.

Funny, thought-provoking, and filled with the love of Jesus, StormProof is another Carol McLeod masterpiece that will lead the reader into the heart of God. Carol takes us on a journey through Scripture, uncovering hidden nuances and truth gems she discovered only through her intimate relationship with the Scripture’s Author. Stormproof is a must-read as we navigate the storms of life. It will help us come through each storm we encounter wiser, stronger, and more in love with Jesus.

It would be difficult for me to recommend anyone else more qualified by their life experiences than Carol McLeod to tell such biblical stories as Paul’s harrowing tale of being caught in a violent storm at sea. Indeed, a person doesn’t have much more to share with someone else than their own story. Carol’s story is one of perils, faith, faithfulness, and triumphs. The ship of her life should have been dashed on the rocks many times, but she clearly has her soul anchored to the hope that never fails. In StormProof: Weathering Life’s Tough Times, you will learn how your own soul can be bonded securely to Christ in the midst of any storm.
—Tim Cameron
Speaker and author, The Forty-Day Word Fast and 40 Days Through the Prayers of Jesus

When life’s winds and waves overwhelm us, we ask: Is there a God? Does He love me? Am I significant in the universe? Having experienced both heartbreaking challenges and God’s life-giving presence, author Carol McLeod gently connects your heart to God’s grace-filled guidance with the assurance, "Everyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame" (Romans 10:11 NIV84).
—PeggySue Wells

In life, storms will come—of this we can be certain. After the devastation of Hurricane Andrew, the state of Florida changed its building codes. In StormProof, Carol McLeod opens the biblical code book and wisely encourages us to build a strong spiritual foundation by embracing and acting upon God’s Word. Be encouraged and full of hope—be StormProof.

Life’s storms are unexpected and leave us with a choice: to become bitter or better. Carol McLeod’s personal and practical book StormProof gives you the tools to prepare for any looming tempests you may face and to anchor your feet in faith so that you remain steady and confident in the midst of them. She provides simple steps to come through these storms victoriously—equipped and empowered as never before. This book is a raincoat of truth to don immediately in this season of your life or tuck away for the next rainfall, but every Christian needs it for protection from the storms of life!
—Erica Wiggenhorn

We live in a fallen, broken world, and at some point, we will all be touched by one of life’s storms. But that doesn’t have to mean we will get swept up and away, to live defeated and discouraged. On the contrary, in StormProof, Carol McLeod lovingly and wisely points us to the hope that exists in every life storm, encouraging us, guiding us, and offering us wisdom for how to keep our eyes on that hope—on Jesus. This book is a great reminder that we serve an all-powerful God, One who effortlessly walks on top of those stormy waves and keeps us from sinking beneath them. If you’re facing storms in life, I highly recommend this book. If you’re not currently facing any storms, I highly recommend this book—because it will help you prepare for when they do come.
—Lynette Eason
Award-winning, best-selling author, the Blue Justice series
