Secrets to Prevailing Through Pain, Suffering and Disappointment

Popular radio host and author Susie Larson knows what it's like to be in pain. From childhood to today, she's faced numerous battles, such as sexual trauma, Lyme disease and neurological disorder.

At the height of her storms, fraught with symptoms, Susie cried out to God: "What's going on, Lord? Where are you?" That's when she received a thundering, but curious word from heaven.

God said, "The storms reveal the lies we believe and the truths we need."

Empowered by Truth

Unsurprisingly, God's answer caught Susie's attention and set her on a quest to discover the truths she needed.

And she found them.

With the guidance of God's hand and the gentleness of His voice, she uncovered powerful truths that strengthened her when she was sick, comforted her when she wondered Why me? and motivated her when she didn't feel like getting out of bed.
