When life shatters, how do we find hope and joy again?
After miraculously surviving a near-fatal brainstem stroke at age 26, life for Katherine and Jay Wolf changed forever - and so did the way they viewed the world. There was no going back to normal from such a tragedy. Yet Katherine and Jay learned that suffering is not the end, but the beginning of a new and profoundly beautiful story.
Together, they found new ways to live fully and celebrate hope in the midst of daily struggles and life-long disabilities. As they learned to not waste their pain and embrace a new perspective on life after catastrophic loss, Katherine and Jay discovered the unexpected gifts of suffering - a new identity, courage in the face of fear, and grace to flourish in a good and hard life.
With brave transparency and enduring hope, Katherine and Jay share how the hardest moments led to supernatural strength - not in spite of pain but because of it. Suffer Strong is a bold invitation to trusting a known God in the midst of an unknown future, to open our eyes to the hidden treasures and see how, even in the dark, new life is born. With hope, humor, and joy, Katherine and Jay show us how to survive anything by redefining how we think about everything.
Is it possible to embrace suffering as a privilege, rather than a punishment? Beloved authors Katherine and Jay Wolf offer readers the bold invitation to trust a known God with an unknown future, as well as practical insights into surviving anything by redefining how we think about everything.
After miraculously surviving a near-fatal brainstem stroke at age 26, as told in their memoir, Hope Heals, life for Katherine and Jay Wolf changed forever - and so did the way they viewed God, the world, and themselves in it. There was no going back to normal after such a tragedy. Yet Katherine and Jay learned that suffering is not the end, but rather the beginning of a new story.
In Suffer Strong, they invite us into this new story as they share universal lessons and helpful practices that will help us to:
Recognize we are being equipped for an uncommon assignment, not cursed by our story. Transform our unmet expectations into brave anticipations. Disrupt the myth that joy can only be found in a pain-free life. Rewrite the narrative of hard circumstances by turning our definitions of suffering into declarations of strength. And, ultimately, thrive even in the lives we never imagined living.
