If you’re like me, I’m sure you know someone who is having a really rough time right now. Someone who has lost his job. Someone who has been dealing with a serious illness in her family. Someone who has lost a loved one. Someone who is battling cancer. Someone who has a teenage child that’s bringing strife to the family. Someone who has a tyrannical boss. Someone who is feeling alone and depressed.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could bring a little joy into their life and put a smile on their face?

Well, I would like to try to help. My name is Anthony DeStefano. I’ve written a few inspirational books, two of them for children—Little Star and This Little Prayer of Mine—and several for adults—A Travel Guide to Heaven, Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To, and The Invisible World.

I’m not new to suffering. Over the years I’ve dealt with a lot of it. Especially family illnesses. Without going into too much detail, I can only say that it’s been a rough few years for me. During that time, I’ve done my best to be strong and cheerful and help the people closest to me. Sometimes I’ve been successful, and sometimes not. But through it all, I kept remembering that old saying: “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

So recently I put together a little book filled of adorable pictures of children reacting to all that life has to throw at them. Then I came up with some captions which I thought seemed light and inspirational, but at the same time had a deeper message—a message of consolation—and I gave the book to some of my family and friends who were hurting.

I’m happy to say that the reaction I got was wonderful! I might even say: “Aww-inspiring”! Slowly, as these folks turned the pages of the book, I noticed that they began to grin. By the time they got to the end, that tiny grin had become a big smile. And a few of them even had some tears of joy as well. The look on their faces told me that, if only for a moment, they were able to put their troubles behind them and allow the happy pictures and heartfelt text to remind them of just how beautiful life truly is and how much God loves them and cares for them.

It was then that I realized that I had to share this little book with others who are feeling down and need a quick spiritual pick-me-up.

Well, the book is called I Just Can’t Take It Anymore! and it has just been published! If you think you know someone who might be able to benefit from this book, or if you, yourself, would like to read it, please do me the honor of reviewing a few sample pages.

"We really loved this book! One of our retreatants burst into tears last night while she was telling me her problems, so I went and got this book straight away for her to read. It cheered her up and gave her hope—what a marvelous gift! She told me she read it 3 times!"
