Second quarter of life is when you are faced with unexpected and unwanted challenges. During your second quarter, you might hear words you never thought would apply to you: Your mortgage payment is past due. Or, we are cutting back, and your job is no longer required. You could experience things you never imagined would apply to you: You say your final goodbye to a loved one. You receive a devastating diagnosis from a doctor. Your children make decisions that disappoint you. You burn out. Many times, the second quarter ends tragically even for wonderful, God-loving people. Marriages die. People commit suicide. Jobs become stale and unfulfilling. Pornography looks attractive and becomes addictive. Families feud and take sides over issues that destroy relationships of lifelong friends. Alcohol becomes a new best friend. Depression feels normal. You may be filled with guilt or loneliness. You never intended to be where you are, but somehow, life s pressures blitz you. You wonder, How can I... * Prioritize my priorities? * Respond to unwanted changes? * Be optimistic despite the chaos surrounding me? * Find peace? * Live life to the fullest? Second Quarter answers these questions. Using Scripture and moving personal stories, David Cottrell offers clear steps to create a life and spiritual game plan that will help you overcome personal adversity and become the person you desire to be. The purpose of Second Quarter is to help you create a spiritual and life game plan to get the most out of your second quarter and beyond. It is written about people who discovered that hope and help were available to them in the Scriptures even during their weakest moments. The book is designed for individual use as well as Bible study groups. Each chapter is followed by thought provoking questions to help facilitate discussion. Turn a time of crisis into the greatest time of your life!
