Souls Are Made Of Endurance: Surviving Mental Illness In The Family

In Souls Are Made of Endurance, Stewart Govig gives a personal account of his family's struggle with their son's mental illness. After his son was diagnosed with schizophrenia, Govig's family faced not only the difficulty of finding medical care and therapy but also the personal anguish and the questioning of faith and of God that often accompany such a crisis. The author's two foundations are the Bible and personal experience. His spiritual search returns meaning to his family's struggle and restores faith and hope. Govig provides guidance and support, and exposes the way society stigmatizes people with mental illness. This book is a powerful statement of hope that every pastor, counselor, and family dealing with mental illness needs to read.
