Suffering Changes Everything
Pain and suffering make each one of us question our lives. Why did this happen? What does it mean? Will I ever be happy again? Amidst all these questions, suffering in the life of a person, when it is endured with grace, changes everything.
As witnesses to pain, suffering, and transformation, Fr. Jorge Obregon, LC, a Catholic priest, and Nayeli Pereznegrón, a lawyer as well as a wife and mother of three, come together to offer you answers to many questions: What do I do with the suffering that I feel? How can I welcome it and discover its transforming power? Where do I find the answers to whether suffering makes any sense? Why does it seem that we suffer more in defeat than we enjoy the happiness of success?
Suffering Changes Everything is a book that will help you find love, hope, and happiness on the other side of suffering and pain.
