WILMINGTON, NC, September 03, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The world, and our lives here in the US, have been turned upside down it seems. We are faced with the Covid-19 pandemic, massive unemployment, and a broken economy. The murder of George Floyd and the shooting of Jacob Blake has caused a level of civil unrest that hearkens back to the 1960's. And all of it is happening at the same time. It is a period unlike any other in history.
Is it possible to maintain our sanity in the midst of all this? Of course, it is. It is possible not only to survive, but to thrive in the very midst of such turmoil. We can, given the right mindset, turn adversity into opportunity. It begins with our personal choices.
How we might do that is the subject of award-winning author Donna Louis' upcoming new book, 'Thriving In Every Season Of Life With God'.
"Our world is changing so quickly it is inconceivable that we have strayed so far from Jesus," Louis stated. "Racism is at its highest height and this is not the way it should be. Peace is supposed to abound. This is what some of our greatest leaders spoke about. 'Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.' 'Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
"We have George Floyd who was murdered by police officer Derek Chauvin, who is now requesting that the charges be dropped arguing that George Floyd's alleged drug use was the reason why he died and not the inaccurate use of force by the officer. As if that was not enough, we are now dealing with the shooting of Jacob Blake that almost took his life. When does it stop? People are speaking up with massive protests, now major league sports are uniting and protesting as well. On Friday August 28, 2020 MLB celebrated the life of baseball great Jackie Robinson and released a statement about the death of Chadwick Boseman who portrayed Jackie Robinson in the movie "42."
When asked about how he felt doing the movie about Jackie Robinson and the racism he endured Boseman said, "he took the role seriously, because he wanted "to do right by the family" and not disappoint Robinson's widow, Rachel Robinson. " When asked about the racist language that Robinson had to suffer through Boseman said, "You do get angry," hearing it, and you do feel, in a slice of that reality, somewhat like he would feel. And it's an incredible amount of courage to deal with that." Jackie Robinson dealt with racism in 1947. This is 2020 and nothing has changed.
"There was a report in the news recently that a man in Springfield went into a Walmart and started hugging people and then told them they now have Covid-19. What is possessing God's children to behave in the manner that we are? People are going through enough daily trying to survive with the unemployment issues hanging above our heads.
"Why have we lost our JOY? Jesus – Others – You. This is the way in which we were taught by Jesus to live our lives. We are to keep LOVE first and always love our fellow man. 'And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love'. – 1 Corinthians 13:13.
Louis' latest published book, 'Book of Proverbs, Wisdom vs. Wilderness' delves deeply into the timeless human quest for wisdom. As all Christians know, the primary purpose of the Biblical Book of Proverbs is to teach wisdom. The Book of Proverbs provides intellectual depth, insights and exceptional wisdom on how to live a meaningful, joyful and tranquil life by honoring and respecting God as omnipotent.
The new release discusses all chapters in Proverbs 1-31 and brings insight, clarity, and basic meaning to several verses in each chapter. It clarifies why wisdom is not only essential, but mandatory in life, if one hopes to live a blessed life, versus living destitute, empty, or feeling lost or hopeless.
Louis has won a number of industry awards. She was recently chosen as the winner in the 2018 Top Female Author Awards in the Religion/Philosophy/Spiritual category. Louis was chosen from an international field of contestants by a panel of judges. She was also a recent winner in the 2018 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading Awards.
Louis' recent wins follow three awards in the 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading Awards contest (2015, 2016 and 2017), and two nominations in the Top Female Authors Awards.
Donna Louis' first book, 'Miracles of Direction, Miracles of Conquest, Miracles of Provision and Miracles of Purpose' helps readers explore miracles both past and present. The book explores biblical miracles that took place while Jesus was here on earth. She then references with miracles that take place on a daily basis in the modern world. She separates these miracles into four categories and presents insightful examples of each type, taken directly from the Bible.
Louis knows her subject well, as she has personally experienced four miracles. As the result of those life-altering experiences, she began an in-depth study of some of Christianity's most well-documented miracles. In her book, she attempts to expand upon and explain both the purpose and the direction of those miracles.
'Miracles' has received rave reviews from readers. One review called it "amazing, uplifting and inspirational". Another stated, "I was profoundly impressed by the writing."
