"Many parents have children who must face life with unexplained illnesses or deformities. Often that life of unusualness falls on the shoulders of the parents and caregivers. That is why Able to Bear It has touched the hearts of grieving mothers, fathers, siblings, and grandparents. In the circumstances of her life, the author, Gertrude Sanborn, had experienced every emotion there ever was. May the Lord use Able To Bear It to renew your determination to live for the Lord Jesus Christ in spite of any serious problems you might have. You may not be able to escape these problems, but, "through patience and comfort of the Scriptures," you can learn to endure the hurt. Such solace and comfort can be found for you, too, as Gertrude Sanborn discovered it many years ago. Her consolation came in a Book--God's Book--the Bible."
