About-

Mother Teresa said, “to have courage for whatever comes in life—everything lies in that.” When people think about courage, they often think about those who put their lives on the line for us every day, like first responders, firefighters, or police officers. But there are so many others who quietly endure, with steadfast courage, whatever comes their way in life. These people are like the anawhim in the Old Testament—the good, kind people whom very few know about, but who trust in the Lord. He is their strength. It is because of their faith in him that they live their lives with courage to face whatever comes their way.

In over thirty years as a psychotherapist and spiritual director, Wilcox has often been amazed at the strength and courage of so many of his clients. Some have faced physical disabilities; others struggle with mental, emotional, or psychological problems; still others with personal, family or career issues.

These people are what he calls “the hidden faces of courage.” Often, they are not well-known. They certainly receive no notoriety or press. Yet, they are always there, doing the best they can each day. This book is an invitation to understand and appreciate the unnoticed courage and strength of ordinary people. If we can “walk in their shoes,” it will help us to be courageous for whatever comes to us in life.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Psychotherapist Peter Wilcox has written a must-read guide to understand the many faces of courage in our lives by highlighting new ways to reflect on our own self-discovery and growth journey. Client examples suggest practical ways to be more authentic and spiritually strong individually, in our family and work relationships, and as citizens of our complex/ever-changing country and world.”

—Bob Connolly, Retired Social Worker, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Health Insurance Analyst



“Once again Peter Wilcox provides ample material for thought. He provides an in-depth look at the many ways people exhibit courage. It is a book that lends itself to daily reflection.”

—Robert A. Coyle, Licensed Psychologist



“Allow your spirit to be uplifted. From the first to last page, Peter Wilcox inspired me to think about the courageous actions of ordinary people in many conceivable contexts. I highly recommend this book. Dr. Wilcox helps us to be more aware of the courage that many people demonstrate daily without external reward. He inspires compassion and a generosity of spirit as well as courage for ‘right action’ to make the world a better place.”

—Mary S. Cadden, LCPC, Kensington, MD
