About the Book

We all have problems, though the specifics vary from person to person. The obstacles that author Leila Hayes faced changed her life—but they did not shake her faith.

Courage for Today and Hope for Tomorrow tells of the struggles that Hayes had after having a stroke on November 25, 2016. Following her initial hospitalization, she was transported to Burke Rehabilitation, the facility she would call home for the next three months. There she had to relearn to walk, dress herself, and pick things up. Eventually she was discharged—only to be readmitted for a blood clot in her lung. Later, she found herself in the hospital for a third time for a mini stroke. Now she shares her experiences in the hope that others may benefit from her journey; she also offers a testimony of her faith interspersed with her story.

This personal narrative presents one woman’s challenges in dealing with three successive strokes, struggling through recovery, and continuing onward with God’s help.
