It's Only a Flat Tire in the Rain
A warm, funny, and truly inspirational book about turning life's toughest challenges into opportunities for renewal and personal growth.
Accidents occur. Stock markets crash. We make mistakes. No matter how much we plan or prepare or prevent, adversity still finds a way to surprise us. Some of these adversities are small but frustrating, like flat tires in the rain. Others are not so small, like illness or loss.
But, says Max Davis, a former pastor, we all have the ability to turn our tragedy into triumph, our hurt into happiness, our outrage into outreach. Davis himself has faced and cleared some of life's highest hurdles. When he was at his personal worst-unemployed, steeped in debt, and uninvolved with his children-he almost gave up. Instead, he systematically rebuilt his life from the bottom up.
Through his personal trials as well as his work counseling people in crisis, Davis created the Seven Power Tools for Changing Those Flat Tires in the Rain. Filled with these and other tried-in-the-trenches techniques, his book incorporates old-fashioned values, new-fashioned wisdom, real-life stories of everyday people, and a big dose of faith to help readers find empowerment and peace in the midst of life's difficult circumstances.
