About the Book
While medical professionals were risking their lives to provide care for victims of Covid-19, we who work in the mental health field were looking for ways to reduce addictions, depression and anxiety. One of the best ways to do this is to change our focus. Instead of thinking about what's wrong with life, this book provides readers with stories about heroes who've made a positive difference.

In "Everything Happens For A Reason: based on true, inspirational stories" you will read about:

- Animals who have saved and greatly improved our lives

- Researchers, scientists, chemists and doctors who have doubled our life expectancy

- A psychiatrist whose experiences for four years in a Nazi concentration camp prepared him to teach how psychotherapy is done today

- A woman who risked her life on the battlefield to bring supplies to both Union and Confederate soldiers founded one of our best humanitarian organizations

- How "Colter's Hell" was turned into to a heavenly place on Earth

- A US general who found a way to prevent a third world war and stopped the spread of communism

- A young soldier who obeyed the "Thou shall not kill" commandment while serving his country on the battlefield during WWII

- The contributions a native American tribe made to the women's movement

- How two strangers, who met by "coincidence", founded the grand daddy of all of our twelve step programs

- How a treatment and research hospital, founded by an immigrant, has increased the life expectancy of terminally ill children by more than four hundred percent.


Deborah Day Poorís new book, EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON, is clearly a book about overcoming Ė and it is impressive in its presentation by what it isnít. It isnít a series of lectures about how to change your life. It is instead a selection of successful examples, allowing the stories about the inspiring experiences of real people and how they overcame their painful pasts to do the teaching.

A common reality inherent in each story is the realization that painful memories simply cannot be erased but they can be replaced.. Follow the young soldier suffering from severe PTSD, who found the ability to care for himself by learning to care for a horse first, and then for his own family. Be inspired by the story of Viktor Frankl, a prisoner of war in Germany during World War II, who overcame the torture of forced confinement by learning to reframe his restrictions and change his perspective. And then there is the story of a determined womenís rights activist named Clara Barton, who changed the way wounded soldiers were cared for by treating all soldiers alike on the battlefield, regardless of the color of their uniforms.

You will love this book and the people whose skills at overcoming their own adversities significantly changed not only their lives but the lives of thousands of others. And they are still changing lives as their individual experiences are shared with Deborahís readers.
