We Are Able. To Overcome Obstacles It is with a great deal of enthusiasm that the author sends an array of hope to a reading audience. This book is written in a simplistic form with an appeal to foster an awareness of God's love. The message of hope indicates that we are able to overcome obstacles that are placed in our paths. It is important to follow the prescription that is given in Hebrews 12:1. "Lay aside every weight, and sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is before us."
