The Courage to Continue
Xulon Press, 2007 - 88 pages
She was in the prime of her life. She was healthy and strong. She was living her dreams as a journalist, a wife and a mother. Everything was perfect. Then everything began to change. Within a year of getting married, at the tender age 29, Ursula was diagnosed with a chronic illness. One month later, her 31-year-old husband had a stroke. Through the most difficult times in her life, her faith in God's promises was tested and her strength was challenged. It was through the darkest hours of her life that God motivated her to press forward with fortitude and win in spite of the draining twists and turns. In "The Courage to Continue," readers will be motivated to laugh, cry and walk with courage as Ursula vividly and candidly coveys the faithfulness of God in hard times through the compelling story of her health crisis. Ursula Metz is an award-winning freelance writer and motivational speaker from Tampa, FL. The Air Force veteran is a graduate of the prestigious Defense Information School and a former military journalist, photographer and Public Affairs representative. Ursula earned several major command and Air Force-wide awards for her articles written about the lives and contributions of military service members. Her work has appeared in several newspapers and one of her essays was selected for publishing in the book "How I Met My True Love," by Xulon Press. She's a mother of two and is married to her best friend, Marcus Metz, a gifted musician.
