Have you ever felt that life is playing against you that you have given everything but it seems like the only option left is to give up? Well, this book is for you. Joseph Boyou's A Life of Resiliency empathizes with your life and shares with you life's morals.
This book is a memoir written passionately to impart life's experiences and its way of dealing and accepting life's storms and obstacles. From his early childhood experience in the civil war, packing to flee, hearing gun fights, staying in refugee camps, and running for their lives have never stopped him from moving forward and seeing opportunities in the military. The loss of Veronica, his wife, on the day she gave birth is totally devastating but Joey Jr. has marked the beginning of his new life.
A Life of Resiliency reminds how the past prepares you for the future. It conveys love and appreciation. It serves as a reminder that in life, we experience love and war, triumph and failure, peace and sorrow, and life and death. But these experiences should never shake us, make us weak, nor pull us down. Rather, we have to bounce back and respond to that life's experience. Life is full of surprises and giving up is never an option. Life is about moving forward. We may not appreciate some of our experiences, but later on we will understand its importance.

He played soccer and ran track while in college and graduated with a degree in Psychology. He chose Psychology as a field of study because he was always infatuated with how the human mind works.
