In LEANING ON THE ROCK, motivational humorist Denise Laborde shares an uplifting, candid, and amusing compilation of personal anecdotes and accompanying scripture that illustrate how God has helped her achieve a fulfilling life, ultimately enabling others to view themselves as victorious overcomers rather than perpetual victims.
As Laborde offers a poignant, faith-filled glimpse into the joys and sorrows of her journey through life, she illustrates how she found comfort and guidance in the Bible and through prayer, despite facing seemingly insurmountable challenges following the birth of two children with cerebral palsy, her father's sudden blindness, a divorce after more than twenty years of marriage, and bankruptcy. Instead of falling into a bitter, deep despair, she details how each event instead deepened her faith in the God who had become her constant ally, steady companion, and the never-ending source of daily strength.
For anyone desiring peace, joy, and contentment, Laborde's experiences offer methods on how to choose God's will in order to move forward, regain hope, and achieve a gratifying life.
"Let him rely on, trust in, and be confident in the name of the Lord, and let him lean upon and be supported by his God."
-Isaiah 50:10 (Amplified Bible)
