ST. GEORGES, Manitoba (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
When asked to describe his book “Rising from the Dark Side of Life: One Man’s Spiritual Journey from Fear to Enlightenment” (published by iUniverse), author Joseph C. Plourde says, “It is the story of my life, from ruin to success.”
Plourde dives into “Rising from the Dark Side of Life” with the intention of shedding light on his most cherished – as well as most haunting – memories. It traces his experiences in life, covering such momentous events as nearly freezing to death, coming close to starving, and, as he says, “… fighting a demon that wanted my soul so bad that it wouldn’t quit until it was defeated by the grace of God to whom I was calling upon for my rescue.”
Plourde discusses his life after he became a Christian, describing the transformation as a rescue in which life became “… brighter and easier” and he began to live with purpose, peace and clarity.
Plourde hopes readers find some hope and encouragement in “Rising from the Dark Side of Life”. He says, “My book is a true and very helpful book for many people all over the world that have problems that they can’t solve by themselves without some kind of help. This book shows them the way to deal with their problems and get rid of them for ever.”
Ultimately, Plourde hopes readers find inspiration in his life while reading about his triumphs – which he credits to the power of faith, hard work and perseverance.
