FIND STRENGTH IN YOUR STRUGGLE: DISCOVER THE MIRACLE IN YOU
Author: Dr. H. Jean Wright ii
Publisher: Harris Author Services
Many of the 7.5 billion souls who occupy this space and place we know as Planet Earth live, work, and raise families in environments that are spiritually, psychologically, and emotionally toxic which serve as breeding grounds for hopelessness, stress, mental illness, violence, and mass incarceration. While many of us have access to phenomenal career and educational opportunities and witnessed great human achievements that our parents, grandparents, and great grandparents could only dream about, we are still struggling to provide for our families. We find ourselves wallowing in hopelessness -- unable to build on the legacy of and sacrifices made by those who have gone before and build a bridge to the future for our children and our children’s children.
Why are we so stressed out? Why are our homes, work places, and communities psychologically, spiritually, and emotionally toxic?
On page six of the Introduction for his book, “Find Strength In Your Struggle: Discover The Miracle In You,” Dr. H. Jean Wright II offers a few answers:
“Most would agree that our society has been subjected to numerous negative events. Our recent history is marked by many natural disasters, such as tsunamis, horrific earthquakes, and a myriad of man-made disasters, terrorist acts, wars, rumors of wars, and greed and mismanagement so extreme that not long ago, national and international financial markets and institutions were nearly brought to collapse. Not surprisingly, people are succumbing to devastating and preventable human conditions, such as disease, starvation, and homelessness. . . . Individuals suffer the greatest of adverse physical psychological, emotional, and spiritual reactions to the chaos and confusion of trying to survive in a violent and troubled world, while facing the daily grind of a hectic life.”
At the same time, Dr. Wright informs us that we experience stress in “good times”, too. As examples, he points to getting a new job and the pressure it brings to perform; moving our family to a new house in a new neighborhood; raising children, or traveling abroad for a vacation as sources of stress.
In “Find Strength In Your Struggle: Discover The Miracle In You,” Dr. Wright takes aim at “spiritual depression” which can be described as a loss or lack of hope. Wright whose professional training is in clinical and forensic psychology, explores spiritual depression in the family, the church, and in the individual and reminds us that “trials come with blessings”.
“Find Strength In Your Struggle: Discover The Miracle In You”, is an empowering blueprint crafted by Dr. Wright which connects the dots between spirituality, physical health, emotional well-being, and positive mental strength and resilience and moves the reader to “thrive” and not just “survive”! A key “piece of the puzzle” to transforming our spiritually, psychologically, and emotional toxic global village into a nurturing and vibrant oasis, “Find Strength In Your Struggle: Discover The Miracle In You,” which is available on Amazon.com at https://www.amazon.com/Find-Strength-Your-Struggle-Wright/dp/ 1498430686, is recommended reading for leaders and members of interfaith organizations, religious leaders, educators, school administrators, law enforcement professionals, legal professionals, business leaders, the general public, legislators, health care professionals and providers and social services professionals and providers.
