We may not always have a choice over what happens to us in life―but how we choose to respond is always a choice. When Stefan’s wife, Jodi, was diagnosed with a terminal illness, he and his four children made a conscious choice to allow their suffering to build them, rather than break them. Taking their lead from Jodi, the true hero of this story, they chose love over bitterness, acceptance over resistance.
Inspired by the writings of Viktor Frankl and Eckhart Tolle, the book shows us that humility and gratitude, even in the face of unbearable tragedy, remain a choice.
"When suffering hits, in whatever form, we have a choice: to allow it to take us down or to rise up and meet it. My family and I chose to meet it. If the way we did it and the choices we made can bring some form of comfort to anyone who may need it, then this book will have served its purpose."
