Overview

In this timely book, family therapist John Dan and his wife Barbara Dan share the stories of men and women who found themselves in circumstances over which, seemingly, they had little or no control, and show how they discovered the strength to move forward, using the unlimited spiritual resources of their faith. When gangs and street crime and drugs threaten to destroy our youth, when domestic abuse and senseless violence are tearing apart the fabric of society, when even the most devout Christian home isn’t safe from the effects of living in a godless society, we need a personal faith that can stand the test against all the heartbreak and overwhelming tragedy and loss. When life seems out of control, when your heart is broken beyond repair, when strength fails and seemingly there are no answers. . .you still have the POWER TO CHOOSE how to deal with .

Meet the Author

First published in her teens, Barbara Dan admits to enjoying a variation of life experiences, including working as an actress, model, night club comedienne, comedy writer, puppeteer, theatrical producer in Hollywood, screenwriter, publicist, real estate saleswoman, hands-on-builder of houses, escrow officer, co-teacher of couples communication workshops with her late husband, family counselor John Dan. Other hats she has worn include publisher, editor, adjunct college professor, and—by far her biggest joy and challenge—being mother to four grown children and grandma to five very lively grandchildren and recently to three great-grandchildren. Hobbies: gardening, cooking, oil painting, quilting. She is a voracious reader on many subjects, loves to haunt old graveyards and historic sites. Many of her characters are inspired by family genaeology charts! But the most outrageous ones come straight from her overactive imagination. Her historical western, SILENT ANGEL, won the Colorado Romance Writers' award for Best Historical Novel (1992). She is a member of Western Writers of America and Women Writing the West. Many of her books are available in paperback as well as eBook. Even though she has degrees in Theatre Arts and Advanced Accounting, and an M.A. in Humanities (emphasis: literature) from Cal State University, she insists that real life is far better preparation for writing than academia! (A good sense of humor also helps.)
