How is life shaping you?


Adversity doesn’t discriminate.  Live long enough and adversity happens to all of us---a healthy marriage crumbles, a child becomes an addict, a meaningful friendship abruptly ends, a parent’s health rapidly deteriorates, a business venture goes bad, a routine check-up reveals cancer, a long-awaited child arrives deformed---and how we navigate through these times ultimately determine who we become.  
The author writes, “Over the years, I’ve observed a variety of ways people have responded to difficulty and as a result, have been shaped by it. Some become hardened, others more humble. Some become cynical, others more grateful. Some grow to resent life; others discover a deeper purpose to life. Some wilt, others bloom. Some learn to hate, others learn to love. Some become hopeless; others become resilient. Some are blown off course; others are moved toward their destiny. It’s not a question of if life shapes us, only a question of how."


On a routine trip to a women’s Bible study, Ken’s wife of twenty-five years was killed in a car accident. At the time of the accident, Ken was forty-seven years of age, the father of two adult children, and the pastor of a large and growing congregation. Using his own story, as well as his thirty plus years of experience in pastoring hundreds of others through adversity and tragedy, Ken in his new book Unexpected: Navigating Life’s Unforeseen Turns  will help you navigate through your unexpected turns in life and in the process become the person you hope to become.
