In life, everyone will experience hard times. Some will give into despair, blame God, or even leave the faith because of it. Yet, others will reexamine their faith and draw closer to God because of hard times. In this booklet, Dr. Hahn draws on the scriptures and the saints to see how they went through hard times and to see how we can draw hope and strength from their examples. The chapters are: 1. Is this how you treat your friends? 2. What are we waititng for? 3. How our Father loves. 4. Testing our faith. 5. Complaining to God. 6. Power made perfect. 7. The escape route. 8. The touch of the Cross and an Act of Hope. Also, on page 12, this inspiring quote is included: “Suffering is a great favor. Remember that everything soon comes to an end … and take courage. Think of how our gain is eternal.” St. Theresa of Avila
