Handicapped author's triumph in an able-bodied world

In Through It All, He Was There: An Inspirational Story of Faith ($16.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-298-6), Xulon Press author Sharon Libby reveals her life's remarkable faith journey in learning to accept the will of God, trust His guiding hand, and embrace His powerful love. Having contracted polio at the tender age of six, Sharon Libby has been confined to a wheelchair for over 50 years--a lifetime experience that taught her how to triumph in an able-bodied world. Interwoven throughout this personal narrative the author traces the history of the disabled in American society as she grapples with her own everyday adversities that challenge her.

Sharon Libby says, "I hope my journey to find God in my life will be a source of healing for the readers of my book as it was for me. Life is a series of choices that can contribute to or alter the degree of adversities that life has to offer. Through every challenge and every unanswered question, there is a reason, a purpose, and eventually an answer to why things happen. The human spirit can prevail even when bad choices are made if faith in God's presence in our lives is not lost."

Throughout her life, Sharon Libby has been a strong vocal advocate for the disabled, including her current pursuit of creating and maintaining an outreach for the disabled on her website. With the release of her heart-rending new Xulon publication, she hopes to further the work of helping others recognize that handicapped people are equally worthy participants in American society.
