As I began my grief journey, lost in pain and confusion – I searched many Christian books for comfort. Book after book did not “speak” to me. Please understand, my faith in GOD never wavered. My love for Jesus never faltered. I simply did not feel nourished and comforted by these books. They were great books but they were not right for me and my journey.
I stumbled upon a Lakota author: Joseph M. Marshall III
I feel GOD led me to this author – HE knew best what I needed. I am grateful.
Mr. Marshall’s books speak to me – I feel the wisdom in his writings, first with Keep Going: The Art of Perseverance and then with The Lakota Way: Stories and Lessons for Living by and I hope many more.
In every chapter, every story, I find a treasure. I will not be fooled by Iktomi.
Today, I am sharing a favorite from The Lakota Way:
“When there are people in need, take their hands”
Simple and powerful – philosophy for life.
