In times of suffering, simple answers often ring empty and hollow--so how can you find hope in hard times? Learn how to survive the difficult seasons with the comfort and of God's constancy. With sensitive, practical advice, Henri Nouwen gently points you towards a life that is grounded in God's companionship and rooted within eternal hope.

In this newly formatted edition, Turn My Mourning into Dancing discusses five movements we experience during hard times:

From Our Little Selves to a Larger World
From Holding Tight to Letting Go
From Fatalism to Hope
From Manipulation to Love
From a Fearful Death to a Joyous Life

Nouwen has discovered that healing begins with taking our pain out of its toxic isolation and seeing our sufferings in communion with all humanity and all creation. He teaches us that our little lives participate in something much larger. Turn My Mourning into Dancing is compelling reading for:

Those looking for growth and insight amid life's hard and harsh moments
Anyone grieving and searching for reassurance
Anyone who has experienced a loss or betrayal

Though it may not last forever, grief is a gradual, organic process that changes a person permanently. Nouwen guides you during your hard times toward answers and hope--hope that allows you to dance even through the darkest night.
