Product Description

Is peace possible amidst suffering? Through scriptural and personal examples, popular speaker and author Mary Ellen Edmunds explores the purposes of suffering and ways to feel peace when immersed in adversity. She cautions against comparing our own trials to those of others, reminding us that we "should not discount each other's suffering" but instead "bear one another's burdens." With characteristic humor and humility, she notes the difference one person can make through small, selfless acts and offers hope that we can trust God through his love and wisdom to help us find peace even in the trials we experience.

Comforting and Entertaining

I don't know how I came to obtain this talk, but from the FIRST time I put it into my cassette player I was uplifted and found a peace that had been missing in my life. Sis Edmunds is extremely entertaining and comforting in the information she presents. I have turned to this cassette many times and have even passed it on to others I love, so that they too might find comfort in these lessons.

Funny, Spiritual, Emotional and HELPFUL!

An excellent talk which applies to both men and women. Sis. Edmunds has again presented an important topic with her humor, deep emotion and personal experience and testimony. She provides everyday examples and situations that we all can relate to and learn how to better find 'Peace Amidst Suffering.'
