Item description for The Strength Within: Find Your Life Anchors and Cultivate Habits of Wholeness, Hope, and Joy (Hidden Spring) by Barbara Hansen...

LIFE HANDS US DIRTY DEALS. No one knows this better than Barbara Hansen--author, college professor, and paraplegic since age eighteen. When she talks about clawing through life's lousy times, every page rings with authenticity. And when she talks about finding peace and joy despite life's dirty deals, every page shines with hope. Her experience forms the core of this guide to healing and wholeness, together with stories of her former and current students, her friends, her readers, and her workshop and lecture attendees. From all these sources she's developed practical strategies for finding true happiness. Happiness comes from choices and attitudes, anchors that form an inner strength that remains solid despite life's roller-coaster ups and downs. Hansen reveals what these choices and attitudes are and how to cultivate them till they become habits of joy.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Strength Within: Find Your Life Anchors and Cultivate Habits of Wholeness, Hope, and Joy?

Accolades to Dr. Barbara Hansen  Jan 12, 2001
I would like to share with you my appreciation and accolades for Dr. Barbara Hansen's recent release of THE STRENGTH WITHIN. From the first chapter I thought, "Dr. Hansen, this poetry"...The rich elements of personification as she revealed some "lousy" devastating life's experiences of hers and others was so beautifully intertwined. The alliteration of her words was so effective. BUT the VERBS--such as "crunching, marinating, weaving, corroding, splashing, etc." that are usually used with the forces of nature, she so eloquently wove into her messages to depict the effects of thoughts, feelings, and other inner experiences. That expertise was indubitably my favorite portion of her expert literary mechanics. I was so impressed with the totality of her literary contribution that I purchased twenty-three of her books to give to special loved-ones and colleagues on my Christmas list. In addition, I suggested in my annual Christmas letter, "If you haven't already read THE STRENGTH WITHIN, please put it on your 'to-do' list." I have been warmed by the responses of those who have read it or who have contacted me about where to purchase the book. It was such a pleasure for me to read, digest, enjoy the value of Dr. Hansen's never-ending poignant messages, and especially, to now recommend this very significant book.
The Strength Within  Sep 27, 2000
The Strength Within was recommended to me by a friend. After I'd gotten a few pages into the book, I couldn't stop reading and finished it at 3:00 a. m. It is truly a 'can't put it down' book! Using an interest-holding balance of her own personal experiences and the experiences of her students, former students, and friends, the author enhances and supports the book's main idea that all of us can have joy if we're willing to look inside ourselves. I believe that anyone who takes the time to read this book will agree that the author shared her inner self and her soul with the reader. Doing so, she gives hope to people who feel trapped in a meaningless life and offers encouragement to people who are climbing out of a tough time or a crisis.
Bring on the world!  Sep 26, 2000
What a refreshing read at a great price! The author is truly inspiring and amazing! This book rejuvenates my spirit and gives me strength to take on the world! Bring it on!
Finding Our Strength  Sep 10, 2000
An amazing book by an amazing person. How refreshing it is to read a book that is about a person who has been through the stuggles that the author has, and chooses not to question why. In a time when we are often too quick to blame others, rather than accept responsibility for our own lives,she shows us how to reach deep within ourselves to live life to the fullest. Just as she has rebounded from personal tragedy so too can we. If we allow ourselves to explore our character flaws this book will teach us how to overcome and conquer the barriers that keep us from living a truly authentic life.
