Overview

In the aftermath of the Dana Airlines 992 crash of June 3, 2012, in Lagos, Nigeria - in which my younger sister was killed - I wrestled with what my role would be to help instigate change to a corrupt aviation system that had caused the needless deaths of over 160 people. In addition, I wanted to do something to create a lasting legacy for my sister and all the unfortunate victims of that ill-fated flight.

Because I've always found writing cathartic, I began to journal and express the gamut of emotions I was feeling. Before long, I began to receive calls and emails from people, telling me how much my writing was helping them through their own healing process. That singular fact birthed the idea for this book, which has since taken on a life of it's own as I've expressed my thoughts succinctly but strongly, in an attempt to be a voice for change.

This book is the result of my life transforming journey that began on June 3, 2012, and while it specifically addresses the Nigerian context, it's applicable anywhere in the world where people are desperate for positive change.

It's interesting to me that we all experience pain in our lives at one time or another, however, there are myrid ways of healing. Joseph points to, What I believe, is the healthiest way to heal.....to make a difference in this world. As we help others we heal by making a difference. I am especially comforted by the raw honesty way that Joseph articulates his thoughts. As he says, "We seem to do fairly well at living in the 'black' and 'white' of the Christian faith as we perceive it. We encounter real problems when we have to live in the grey." The truth is---we DO live in the grey. Joseph shares a series of lessons and observations that can only come from living in the grey of pain and struggle. He explores relationship, prayer, and the human condition, as well as God's will, in ways that are often articulated in a "feel good, it will all be better tomorrow" way when the truth is, as he shares, "Healing is a process, not a spiritual law or commandment." We heal one day at time....Jesus is not the great ATM machine in the sky. Indeed, Jesus is the refuge in our lives and by allowing His love to shine through us true healing and meaning can be embraced for the suffering and pain that we all experience. The key that I took away was that Jesus offers a hope in the midst of our pain, that He meets us in that midst--rather than simply washing it away. And in understnading that, we can become stronger, more passionate in all that we do and in all that we serve. As Joseph shares, "It's not how you die that matters, It's how you lived!"
