Discovering love in unexpected placesIn this reassuring and informative resource, Christian relationship counselor Greg Popcak takes a wide view of love and introduces new possibilities of finding love everywhere in life—among couples, parents, friends, family, and strangers. Every encounter with another person offers a transformative moment: a chance to transform one's self and others and draw strength, joy, and grace from the moment. Drawing from contemporary tales and ancient wisdom, this collection includes stories of couples who discover each other anew, friends who help each other through severe illness, couples who learn to accept their family's messiness, adult children who find ways to love their parents only when they are failing in health, and strangers who stand up to protect one another simply because they recognize their shared human dignity. Organized into three parts—the three ways in which to find love—this guidebook illustrates love's rich variety.
