    Comfort, Care and Strength

    Adolfo Quezada¿s book, Heart Peace: Embracing Life¿s Adversities is a masterpiece. In the preface, he writes, ¿Life is a Tornado. It is a whirlwind that tosses and turns you, at the same time, at the center of it all, there is a peace that surpasses all understanding.¿ Holding a master¿s degree in journalism and counseling, Quezada writes that there was no darker time in his life than when his beloved son was killed. This book is written out of his personal journey, thereby bringing the authority that only first hand experience can bring. However, this wise book goes beyond even that, to embrace the many kinds of suffering people have, making it universal in its message of hope. Heart Peace is a gentle book that takes the reader by the hand and draws them into a fullness of understanding within their own unique hardship experience. Acting as a guide, it reminds us of truths we know in our hearts but often forget. Having also lost a child, I found Quezada¿s perspectives invaluable, life-affirming, encouraging, He addresses anxiety and fear of the unknown, teaching us that sometimes we can only control how we respond. He inspires us to give purpose to our anxiety by making it manageable and useful. An extensive, compassionate book filled with important phrases to underline, Quezada writes, ¿Our task is to take what is before us and break it down into bite size portions that we can chew and swallow without choking.¿ In the excellent conclusion, he reminds us that nothing good comes from force, our strength lies in being truthful with ourselves and listening to the rhythm of God¿s heart. Anyone who is stressed out, going through loss or hardship of any kind will find this book an invaluable companion and resource of comfort, care and strength. It helped me in many ways.
