A great loss or series of losses doesn’t have to define your life. Local author Gregor Southard shares a collection of blogs he wrote between 2012 and 2014 in his new memoir “Emerging from the Shadows” (published by WestBow Press).
“Emerging from the Shadows” talks about what Southard was going through emotionally and spiritually at the time, and how his faith became stronger through the adversity of losing everything over the course of five years. The entries follow a common theme of finding peace in Christ despite hardship.
Southard wants readers to take away “that peace can be found in Christ no matter what we go through in life.” He adds that “there are tangible answers beyond clichés and Bible verses we get from friends when the answers, though real, don’t give much comfort during times of trials.”
