9781418478476: Patience, My Foot!: Learning God's Patience Through Life's Difficulties

LeFan tells his story of how God taught him patience through his personal trials and struggles. But this book is not a tear-jerker about personal hardships. In a nutshell, Patience, My Foot! is about learning God's patience through life's difficulties. Most of us readily give lip service to the need for patience as we rush through our lives. LeFan reminds us through a wealth of stories, Scripture, and his own personal experiences of the importance of seeking and developing real patience. There are riches here both to motivate and inspire. In showing how he came to accept his own physical limitations, LeFan shows readers how to come to grips with life's challenges. The advice is not a collection of sweet platitudes, rather it is nitty-gritty how-to. The book was literally written with the toes of LeFan's left foot. Patience, My Foot! was a featured selection in the College Press Book Club. This book is a faithful witness to the power of patience and the power God. Patience, My Foot! is rich with biblical truths, personal experiences, practical principles, and inspiring illustrations which can help all of us to become more patient.

From the Publisher:

LeFan tells his story of how God taught him patience through his personal trials and struggles. Diagnosed with severe paralytic polio with full respiratory involvement at the age of eight, he is now a "full-time polio quad." He explains how he came to accept his physical condition, being almost totally paralyzed. And he explains his determination to achieve despite obvious hindrances. When arms and hands failed to function, LeFan called upon what would work-his left foot. Patience, My Foot! was literally written with the toes of his left foot. But the book is more than a story about one man's personal struggle against a handicap. It is an exploration of Everyman's encounter with the vicissitudes of life, and how they can be used to build strength, endurance, and meaning for living.

From the Author:

When we accept ourselves with patience, without feeling envy or anger toward others (including God), we are set free to begin the joyful business of living.
