Foreword by Pastor Charles Carrin and Dr. Corey Cameron You-one person-an individual, can literally change this whole world with love. By focusing on love, making a choice to love, feeding all that is positive, good, and of the light with exuberance and abundance instead of feeding the negative and evil things of the darkness. You can literally change the world and yourself. One relationship--one interaction--one decision at a time.If you are experiencing the dark night of the soul in affliction year after year, it will present you, as it has me, with opportunities not found in most other life circumstances.This is a life story of being in the fire, where I currently remain, where my heart for the Lord has become increasingly insatiable. A deepened intimacy has developed and continues to grow even through this very moment, and will continue beyond. As you read, this is my hope and prayer for you as well.Elizabeth Chalker is still in the furnace of life's calamities and fighting the good fight of faith and endurance, keeping her eyes on the prize of heaven. Before serious, physical illness devastated her body, Elizabeth was on the fast track as a successful psychologist and addictions specialist, working with violent juvenile offenders and their families, near the completion of her third graduate degree. Her life is a testimony of faith that is steadfast and remains no matter the seemingly dark, unjust, and treacherous circumstances of life. She resides in Boca Raton, Florida, with her beloved "son" Symon (a Corgi/Shepherd mix dog). Elizabeth continues to minister to those in need and aspires to show God's glory through every breath she takes.To contact the author, go to www.helpelizabeth.net

The first thing I noticed, when I was reading "Hanging On..." was Elizabeth's eloquent and illustrative story-telling. Not many people can be so astute and still keep the reader's attention to keep turning to the next page. Prepare to enjoy a well-crafted book.
