Still Standing: 100 Lessons From An 'Unsuccessful' Life

Tola Fisher

Paperback 2020-06-18

Publisher Description

What do we do when life hasn't turned out the way we expected? Why does it seem to take so long for us to get what we want? Does God still hear our prayers - even the "selfish "ones that are not about world peace? Will I be single forever? Are we allowed to talk about sex? Does God even care? Life expectations have changed significantly for women over the years but many of us are left still trying to navigate them, berating ourselves for not having the perfect job, husband and cute children to Instagram to our 'friends.' Still Standing is a series of 100 "life lessons" from someone grappling with the messy middle. After the bereavement of a daughter shortly after birth followed by the demise of a marriage and unwanted divorce, Tola Fisher explores what she has learned in this wilderness season. This is a book about discovering joy in a life which has been completely broken. To the world, she remains unfixed; she is still single, still childless, but God has brought her to understand that no experience is wasted and that He is in the business of restoration every day, in every one. Tola candidly uses her own life experiences to explore what she has learned in this season, turning to the Bible's wisdom to help us find God in every lesson thrown our way.
