In Bouncing Forwards, Patrick offers hope to those who are facing
life’s battles such as mental or physical health challenges,
bereavement, recovery from trauma or the loss of dreams, or
recovery from trauma. Making peace with his own, ongoing anxiety
that came from a period of intense physical, emotional and spiritual
pain, Patrick is honest and vulnerable looking honestly and
vulnerably at the temptation to wait for the day when all will
be well whilst missing out on what’s happening in the here and now.
He looks at the nature of resilience, asking, is it possible to be
OK even when life isn’t? Can we thrive, not just once we’ve come
through adversity, but right there in the midst of it? Following on
from Patrick’s best-selling book 'Honesty Over Silence', Bouncing
Forward continues the difficult conversations that can be too scarce
in church culture. He explores the power of acceptance, how we move
through grief and trauma, the nature and benefits of being emotionally
agile, finding meaning in hard times and learning how we grow when life
Many of us know all too well that when we’ve suffered we don’t simply
‘bounce back’; difficulties can leave us scarred and changed. But
as we face our past and our present with courage and show ourselves
kindness and compassion, we find that we can move forwards and discover
the truth of God’s treasures in our darkness.
