Rock-Bottom Blessings

Discovering God's Abundance When All Seems Lost
  • By Karen Beattie
$11.79
($13.95)
What does it mean to live an abundant life? Some might say living abundantly means living comfortably, having the family you always dreamed of, receiving accolades from your peers, in short--living a life that is commonly accepted by many as blessed. But what if having an abundant life is more than the "good life"? Can we actually be blessed in the midst of serious disappointments and setbacks?
In Rock-Bottom Blessings, Karen Beattie makes the case that true abundance is found in the transformation that happens when we experience God's presence during periods of grief, loss, and disappointment. With the help of her friends and her newfound Catholic faith, she learns to trust that God's plan is better than hers. Beattie began to see life's challenges as gifts to be accepted like all other gifts: with reverence and gratitude.
Beattie's story makes abundantly clear: it is the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ (the paschal mystery) that can inspire us not only to find blessings in every season of our lives, but to be utterly transformed by God's riches.
