If your world is a mess it doesn’t mean that you have to be one. You’re Going To Be OK offers real hope for women from women fighting cancer, mental illness, sexual abuse or loss.

You don’t need to be alone in your fight. Women who build hope into their own lives and who share hope with others become powerful.

You are going to be OK.

Eleven Fighters

In his latest book, You’re Going To Be OK, Bob shares the stories of eleven women – including his wife Jocelyn – who faced down mental illness, sexual abuse, cancer, or loss.

Susan Wells, a long time friend, wrote the foreword and encourages fighters, “You are not in this alone. The honesty of the women within these pages made me feel like I had made new friends. Their raw accounts of facing crippling physical and emotional issues are beautifully woven so that anyone can relate.

You’re Going to be OK doesn’t throw out shallow platitudes or easy formulas. Rather, you are lovingly guided along the path that eleven women have traveled to reach their wholeness. You have permission to feel sad, be mad, get angry, but you will not be left on your own. Their course of actions had set them free and now they are offering hope for others. If they could do it, so can you.”

Real Hope

From the Introduction: Hope is described as an anchor of the soul, sure and steadfast. Anchors serve best in stormy weather.

With hope anything is possible.

Sometimes you need to hang on to someone else’s hope, someone else’s peace and sanity while yours is under siege.

Do it.

Courage, hope, faith, sanity, peace…they all come and go. Borrow them from someone else’s supply until your own comes back in.

We share real stories of eleven women – our friends – who fight cancer, sexual abuse, mental illness, and loss. They borrowed what is now shared with you – a way forward – a way to find meaning and hope through the suffering.

Each woman opened a window on a moment of her experience. Their stories are raw. Our intent is to be honest. You won’t find a pretty bow at the end of some chapters. But you will find hope. They used faith, medication, prayer, physicians, forgiveness, and therapy as God’s gifts for healing.

Hope is holding on to what gives life meaning and being safely anchored by that meaning against life’s storms.

What Readers Are Saying

“Hope is one of the most beautiful words I know! Tragedies and difficulties in life want to tear hope away from us and leave us flailing in the unknown. Knowing this, Bob has put together stories of hope to encourage you and help you find and cherish hope again. It’s worth the read for anyone who has suffered.” Joanne Goodwin, International Speaker

“A book filled with the real bravery of people’s journeys that remind us we are not alone and to hold on, never give up. You’re going to be ok.Connie Jakab, Mental Health Warrior
