Another of Rachel Rofe compilations Thorns To Be Thankful For: Personal Stories Of Overcoming Hard Times is a mixture of Thorns To Be Thankful For.1inspirational personal stories, and my chapter is about my son Jodi, who has autism.

Again, this was an instant best seller when it was launched in February 2014.

Here’s the description –

   One of the greatest things about being human is that we get to experience a wide range of experiences.      Sure, sometimes we’re hit with low periods that make us question everything. We also have the high periods – the feeling of new love, the first warm day out of winter; the feeling you get when your favorite song comes on the radio.
While they don’t feel like it at the time, low periods certainly have their value. They make way for revelations, wisdom, rebirth.
Personally, I love to operate under the belief that “everything happens for our highest good”. When “bad” things are happening, I like to think that it’s because it’s making way for a great learning lesson or an even bigger blessing.
That’s what this book is about. You’re going to read stories of people overcoming mind-bending hardship and coming to the other side much stronger.Buy Now
Some of the things people in this book went through are unthinkable. But they got through it – and when you read, hopefully you realize that you can get through anything too. This book will help you peek into the fabric of peoples’ souls. You’ll hear their stories, feel inspired, and realize that we’re all in this together. It is my hope that as tough things come up in your life, you’ll think back to a story you read here and realize that there’s hope on the other side.
