Beyond the Storm: Coping Strategies to Thrive in the Aftermath of Any Challenge
June 27, 2017
Pastor Debra Morton
Non-fiction: Religion/Spirituality
When someone you love dies, many gather around for support, to bring meals and offer a shoulder to cry on. However, soon after the funeral message is complete and the casket is lowered into the cold ground, people return to living and you are left alone to pick up the pieces and try to figure out how to walk in your new normal.

Broadway star and singing sensation Jennifer Hudson also understands this concept all too well. In October of 2008, she tragically lost her mother, brother and nephew at the hands of her ex-brother-in-law. Six years later, she is quoted as saying, “I have definitely seen the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows… You don't know how strong you are until you are placed in that kind of moment.” Hudson’s statement summarizes what it is like to live through a tragedy that is so intense, so extreme that if the sorrow was to figuratively suffocate you or cause you to drown in your own tears it would seem reasonable, even expected.

Surviving and thriving beyond the aftermath of crisis, hardship and disaster—that is what Pastor Debra Morton’s new book Beyond the Storm: Coping Strategies to Thrive in the Aftermath of Any Challenge is all about. This book was written to help people struggling to recover from the aftermath of tragedy, trauma, challenge and crisis. Author Debra Morton has intricately woven together a tapestry of advice, steps and keys to assist you in recovering from the devastating life blows. It will help you find purpose, in spite of it all, and push you toward your destiny.

After having lost her precious 18-month-old granddaughter to a respiratory infection and all of her material possessions during Hurricane Katrina, Morton came to realize that just because people go through the same incidents, it doesn’t mean they experience the same emotions throughout the process. All her trials and tribulations also helped her to realize that when people are given strategies ahead of time to learn how to cope, their adjustment and ability to thrive despite the circumstances increases. Another thing she learned is that not all coping is positive. There are actually two types of coping that she shares with her readers. One type of coping is positive and involves using adaptive mechanisms, while the other is a negative coping response choosing avoidance mechanisms. She outlines these elements in the “Steps to Recovery” chapter of her new book.

Now Pastor Morton desires to share the benefits of learning and applying positive coping mechanics to her readers along with her practical advice and wisdom for others struggling to regroup and find their way while recovering from a recent tragedy or ongoing difficulty. Readers of this book will discover the following tools to help them achieve purpose after facing the challenges of life through the following concepts:

• Holding on to Hope
• Insight beyond Eyesight
• Steps to Recovery
• Compartmentalizing the Impact
• Peace in the Midst of Adversity

These are just a few of the many concepts Morton uses to help readers recover from their pain, renew their purpose and push on despite setbacks.
