I just finished reading "I Stand Alone by Kathryn M. Holmes" for the sixth time.  It is truly one of the very best Christian testimonials i have ever read.  It was particularly hard hitting for me.  I am a wheelchair user and have had to deal with the same stresses and circumstances as the author.  Unfortunately I failed the test in many respects  for several years.  

For a long time I rejected the idea of acceptance. Not only that, I spent long months in a depression and self-pity state that was most trying for my family.  I stead of looking for answers and having the intestinal fortitude to fight, I simply surrendered without a fight.

It is too bad that this book was not availed to me those years ago when it could have done so much good.  I have somewhat adopted this book as a manual for change that i now recommend to other disabled veterans as well as others who are disabled.  

The best thing about the book, to me, is the down to earth, no no-sense look at disability and the encroachment of the heart and mind it brings to light.  It does not sugar coat the difficulties nor takes the easy way out of the world changing circumstance.  It is so refreshing to read of the issues and the real work of a person from the inside.  

I would think that all Christians, as well as others, could richly benefit from this witness of strength and personal walk with God.  Read it one, twice, three times... or as many as you desire, but read it and recommend it to others!
