ENUMCLAW, Wash., Feb. 12 /Christian Newswire/ -- Patricia Hicks Taylor has found that strength through life's storms comes not from forgetting—but remembering. Ms. Taylor says committing verses of Scripture to memory and walking closely with God serve as a bulwark in even the most turbulent seas of life. "Joy in the Midst of Life's Storms," released by WinePress Publishing, offers not only a riveting personal testimony but a practical guide to passing through tragedy and emerging stronger.
"The book contains some skeletons that many people would rather leave in the closet," says Ms. Taylor. "But there are lessons to be learned from each one of them as well as the potential for amazing growth."
In a conversational style, with the intimacy of a diary, the author relates her lifetime of walking hand in hand with Jesus. Her story is both heart-warming and heart-rending as she leads readers through the painful memories of contracting polio, languishing in fear at the hands of an intruder as a young mother, struggling with her daughter's congenital heart disease and mental retardation, and agonizing over her son's distress, jail sentence, and divorce.
Although just one of these personal trials may have been enough to drive some to despair, Ms. Taylor says she is a survivor because she found the joy of salvation and the blessing of obedience. "This victory and strength is of soul, mind, and body," she says. "And that adds up to a wonderful joy."
