The author, Aaron Fruh is a pastor, national radio personality, regional television host and an expert when it comes to loss. He experienced loss early on when his father was killed by a drunk driver when he was three years old. Growing up in a single parent home, he learned the value of bouncing back from life’s losses and struggles. Rather than being defeated by loss, he saw it as an admired mentor. His favorite quote is “Somedays you win and other days you learn.” Learning to depend on God for restitution and restoration. Aaron developed major recuperative powers, a deep well of love and compassion and a great sense of humor. He has been forged in the fire of loss and made stronger and more resilient, which has become his life message and one he is passionate about sharing.

Aaron is the vice president of education and development for Israel Team Advocates International, a nonprofit organization that mentors athletes, coaches, and business leaders, helping them gain a deeper understanding about the Jewish people and the nation of Israel. Aaron was the lead pastor of Knollwood Church in Mobile, Alabama, for twenty-four years. He is a graduate of Bethany University and Wheaton College Graduate School.

This is a great book to use with a journal as Aaron gives a prompt for each of the chapters. There are many stories of positive ways to handle life’s wins and learnings! It is timely, as it is a very positive way to get through life with ourselves, our family, our society and our God.
