“It just shouldn’t be this hard!”
Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a day where everything that could go wrong does go wrong—you lock your keys in the car while it’s running, lose control with your kids, make a mistake at the office that results in hours more work. And just when you think not one more thing could possibly happen . . . well, fill in the blank.
The struggle is real, friends. It may not be major stuff. Lives are not on the line here. But it makes us feel awful . . . and then we feel guilty for stressing when other people have “real” problems that are so much more serious.
Yet the fact remains: We live in a world that often feels harder than we think it should be. And so it can be easy to believe the stories we tell ourselves—that we’re doing it wrong, that we’ll be stuck in this place forever, that God doesn’t love us. We struggle to practice gratitude, to make godly choices, and to live our daily lives with confidence and contentment. So what can we do?
Join popular Bible teacher and counselor Nicole Unice to discover why the struggle is real . . . and what to do about it. Nicole offers practical tools to help you navigate the daily ups and downs, and ways to rewrite your struggle into a new, God-centered life story. The Struggle Is Real is an invitation to take the hard, hurtful, and confusing moments and turn them into opportunities to grow in wisdom, strength, and joy.

Nicole’s invitations to speak have taken her across the world, and her books come to life through her popular video curriculum series found on RightNow Media. Her first book, She’s Got Issues, released in May 2012 and speaks to a fundamental question of faith: Is being a Christian supposed to change me?

Her subsequent titles--Brave Enough and The Struggle Is Real—help people distill the complicated stuff of life into a simple and clear path to Jesus.

The Struggle is Real is a Christian self help type book is how I would describe it. I would recommend to have a notebook to take notes cause this book packs a lot in it. Everyone in life will have struggles at some point or another - whether they come to you as a big or or lots of little ones. So if we cannot avoid struggles then one of the best things we can do is prepare ourselves on how to better deal with the struggles in our lives. If you are not a Christian the struggles can really drag you out but if you have God on your side then you can have faith that you will overcome the struggles in your life. So many of the little lessons in this book really hit me and was something I needed. I am sure this book could be a help to many. Good read and one to keep to reread for sure. Disclaimer: I was given a complimentary copy of this book but all thoughts and opinions are my own honest ones.
