God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference. Prayer is the light that guides us through our darkest days. And the Serenity Prayer shines its brightest when you need it most-during times of trial and recovery. In Living the Serenity Prayer, you'll meet thirty-five people who, just like you, have drawn strength from this beloved poem. People like: Jay, who stops blaming God for the difficulties he's faced-and instead lets God help him stop drinking; Lisa, whose son's battle with autism is one she must fight as well; Lynn, who lets go of her anger toward her drug-addicted daughter because "only God can change a heart." You'll find comfort and hope in these moving stories inspired by the Serenity Prayer. With God's grace, you too can persevere through life's challenges-and encourage others along the way.
