Title Sheds Light on the Power of the Human Spirit to Prevail
In Through It All, He Was There: An Inspirational Story of Faith, author Sharon Libby reveals her life’s remarkable faith journey in learning to accept the will of God, trust His guiding hand, and embrace His powerful love. Having contracted polio at the tender age of six, Sharon has been confined to a wheelchair for over 50 years–a lifetime experience that taught her how to triumph as a handicapped person in an able-bodied world. Interwoven throughout this personal narrative the author traces the history of the disabled in American society as she grappled with her own everyday adversities that challenge her throughout her life and have defined her as being different.
Sharon has been a strong vocal advocate for the disabled, including her current pursuit of creating and maintaining an outreach for the disabled on her website at www.sharonlibby.com. With the release of her heart-rending new publication, she hopes to further the work of helping others recognize that handicapped people are equally worthy participants in American society.
Sharon Libby says, “Life is a series of choices that can contribute to or alter the degree of adversities that life has to offer. Through every challenge and every unanswered question, there is a reason, a purpose, and eventually an answer to why things happen. The human spirit can prevail even when bad choices are made if faith in God’s presence in our lives is not lost.”
Dr. Orval C. Butcher, founding minister at Skyline Wesleyan Church, Lemon Grove, CA endorsed Through It All, He Was There, by writing: “It is my conviction that this book should be read by everyone to help them understand the emotional testing of a person who experiences the trauma of being stricken with a disability as a child. Imagine the FRIGHT of a six-year-old paralyzed and unable to walk due to polio… the indescribable value of FAMILY, parents and grandparents, unfailing support… then a lonely 15-year-old with FAULTY discernment in making marriage decisions… at that time FAVORED with two precious boys… then experienced the sense of absolute FRUSTRATION when neglected by the church and Christian friends… but had constant hope of FAITH in the Word of God… then divine FULFILLMENT of marital happiness. The reading of this book will give you a new focus on the power an enabling of our Lord.”
