Pain, Purpose, Passion: That Was Then, This Is Now


Twenty-two true stories of triumph through the most challenging times. What does it take to more than survive our stories, to more than merely overcome in the face of what we fear most? Each of these true stories offers these gifts: breathtaking candor, the kind of courage that lies hidden in all of us, and a powerful glimpse of the same light we, too, are seeking.
