Stories To Help You Overcome Your Darkest Days
– By Jen Guidry

Grit and Gratitude

A “real life” conversational guide to living the life God has intended for you. No fluff. No fancy words. Stories and feelings that every woman can relate to.
Grit and Gratitude will make its readers realize that they are not alone in their daily struggles. They will find comfort in each story’s lesson(s) because they are things that every woman has been faced with and felt. The author just takes it one step further and shows them how much better life can be when they take God with them along for the ride.
In a world of filters and facades, “Grit and Gratitude” breaks the mold by tackling real problems and challenges that Christian women face on a daily basis. Author Jen Guidry, through her own personal experiences, takes you on an entertaining and insightful journey embracing the messiness and beauty of life. This book is not just another self-help guide, but a warm conversation over a cup of coffee with a trusted friend who’s been through it all.

The Storm

When you realize there is purpose in everything that happens to you, it will become easy to keep your faith and trust your loving God, even on your darkest days.

Through your greatest sorrows, you can find many joys. Through your greatest “knock downs,” you can get up and become much stronger. Through your greatest struggles, you can have the most amazing victories.

Many people sit around and reminisce about things they wish they could do. Then there are people who DO. Which one do you want to be?

We ALL face our own storms. When they happen, we have one choice–our reaction.

You can choose to pause and smile, knowing God has you.

This book will help you work through your storms and show you how to be victorious.
