This book is the result of my visiting men in jail who needed rehabilitation. As I helped them learn to find joy in spite of their troubles I developed this approach based on scriptures. After proving its value in discussions with men in rehabilitation I decide to share it with all who desire to use it. I am a retired physician but this book contains no prescriptions or medical advice. It contains spiritual suggestions on how we can follow James' advice in James 1 and Paul's advice in Romans 5. This is not an easy challenge but one in which we can have enough success to find hope and joy when faced with the inevitable losses we all suffer.
Coping With Life: Finding Joy in Dealing with Troublesby Harold F Vann MD, MS Mike Smith BS
We are challenged by the Apostles Paul and James to be extremely joyful when we face troubles, temptations, trials, tests, challenges or tribulations in life. This is a difficult challenge for each of us. We can meet that challenge more successfully by understanding the stages from loss to joy. You can learn which stage gives you the most difficulty and how to use your strengths to find joy in your life. You can recognize whether you are prone to get "hung up" in either denial, anger, blaming, or depression. You can learn how to use faith, hope and love to adjust and find meaning to your losses. Coping With Life can assist you in learning how to live in joy more of your time in this life.
