ENUMCLAW, Wash., Mar. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- As hurricane Isabelle crashed through North Carolina in 2003, Frances Seymour sat contentedly working in a church office. Suddenly, she found herself swept away from her comfort zone and from her nice home with two baths into a camper.


Although Frances could have wallowed in her loss, she found the strength to stand up and help her husband begin work with the North Carolina hurricane victims. We may not all have hurricanes coming our way, but sometimes it feels like it. We find ourselves disarrayed when trials come our way, whether losing a family member, fighting with an illness, or struggling with finances. But it is during those times when our faith is truly tested. Will we succumb to the pain and sink deeper, or can we rise above it and find our true purpose in life?


With an honest and accurate depiction of life with its obstacles and struggles, new release "Perils & Promises" from author Frances Seymour [Pleasant Word, 2006] will propel your heart toward a greater yearning for the lasting things of God. Stricken with rheumatic fever, suffering with epileptic seizures, surviving a radical brain surgery, and living through a hurricane, Frances identifies with the physical, mental, social, and spiritual perils all must face.


Frances shares her spiritual journey and battles through honest and humorous prose and heartfelt poetry. "Through life's most painful and difficult moments, we must learn to trust in the surety that God is with us—that He will never leave nor forsake us," says Frances. In a heartwarming story, "Perils & Promises" deals specifically with spiritual battles and burdens we carry in day-to-day life. 


As an interview topic, Frances also shares practical, seasoned advice on preparing for and recovering from natural disasters, such as hurricanes, floods, or tornados.
