Living Beyond the Pain – Insights for Your Journey of Transformation

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Selley Group Real Estate, LLC

Book Promo

I couldn’t resist.  I am so proud of my husband.  Despite all his pain, and most notably, he is dealing with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Gordon is one of the most optimistic and inspirational individuals that I have ever met.  His book, entitled, “Living Beyond the Pain,” is due out at the end of May this year.

And you have to get a copy for yourself.  What the heck.  Buy extras to pass out to your friends and family who might be struggling with chronic pain or colossal-sized obstacles.  Gordon has a unique way of putting a face and soul on to the deeper meanings of suffering and encourages each person to run the race of life to its fullest!

You can buy a bundle of 10 books for $100.00.

Yes, I know.  I may have jumped ahead of the book promos, but I have read his manuscript a few times and I am personally touched by it and learn something new each time I read it.

Here’s a sneak peek:

Making the Change

            “Make no mistake about it: the “Journey of Transformation” is not for the faint of heart, no matter how much divine assistance you believe you’ll receive.

It takes incredible courage to see life from a different perspective and then to actually take that initial step toward a newly formed reality. To progress forward with the second step is even more daring, and so on down the path into a new journey.

Moving from old habits to establishing new patterns of living does not happen by mere coincidence. Neither is this process of change something that can be designed like an architectural blueprint or purchased through a self-help seminar.

If there’s one thing I can do through the pages of this book, it is to meet you in that place where all faith in the future is gone.

I want to reach you in that place where things seem hopeless.

I want to shine a light into that place where you hide when you’re broken and have experienced a real crisis of faith.

But most of all, I wish to share with you a few treasures I’ve discovered about the mysteries behind the transformed life.”

I am always amazed at the strength that some people going through adversity find.  Rheumatoid arthritis is a debilitating disease and I admire Gordon for keeping up his spirits and sharing his philosophy.  I am sure the book will be a huge success.

Cherise, that's wonderful that your husband has taken a bad situation and instead of feeling sorry for himself he is reaching out and helping others facing adversity.  What a great achievement for the both of you.

Cherise, I did not know of this affliction of Gordon's but to write a book about it and the transformation is very inspirational. I have known Gordon to be a great guy my whole time here in the Rain, and another chapter in his greatness is just awesome.

Cherise, I had a friend that had Rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 3.  Her ankles were operated on at that age to help her walk.  I remember she use to crawl around on all fours to get to room to room... but, she has great strength, later she had both knees replaced and now rides a bike.  I, myself, have psoriatic arthritis and the winter is worse for me as the psoriasis just seem to spread over my body.  I hope to get copies of Gordon's book as I know it will help me and some of my family members.

WOW You all.  I didn't realize that Cherise was starting to promote my book.  I am both humbled and honored by your response and hope to offer insights to many, not just the afflicted, to walk out their own journey of transformation, no matter how big the obstacles might appear.  And yes, feel free to BUY AS MANY BOOKS as you would like to when they are available at the end of May!! g
