My goal, through ‘Common Stones’, is to help these people find the light in the darkness while encouraging them to feel empowered to continue their fight.

The path of life, for all of its struggles, is paved with common stones.

This is the firm belief of author Alicia M. Smith. In her new book, “Common Stones”, she joins together a powerful collection of real stories from real people triumphing over life-altering hurdles.

“Millions of people suffer from a tragedy or crisis that makes them feel hopeless and powerless,” Smith said. “My goal, through ‘Common Stones’, is to help these people find the light in the darkness while encouraging them to feel empowered to continue their fight.”

Not merely a collection of short stories, “Common Stones” collects and unifies these true stories with their common thread. Smith’s conclusion is that the cornerstone of these people’s strength, hope, and success was their faith in God.

Smith offers inspiration, healing and hope for readers who feel tested, battered and beaten by life. With “Common Stones”, she offers positive affirmation that life does give more than one can handle, which is exactly where faith in God comes into play. He makes up the difference.
