At some point in our lives, most of us will encounter adverse experiences in some form or other. These experiences likely interrupt our comfortable and safe daily routines and can be unpleasant and painful. Could This Be Grace is a powerful story about Dianne’s personal journey through multiple adverse experiences created by raising two boys who died from a devastating, very rare genetic disease. She describes many of her experiences as painful, crushing, breath-stealing moments that had a huge impact on her life and the lives of family members. The lessons Dianne learned as a result of her situation had a positive impact on her life as a parent and as a teacher.
• Adverse experiences impact our quality of life
• Asking a simple question helps us see opportunity in the face of adversity
• The experience of an adverse situation challenges or threatens our identity
• To regain hope when you are feeling that you have lost it
