Finding True Courage And Smiling In The Face Of Adversity Episode 41

Someone once said, “True courage is being able to smile in the face of adversity while embracing one’s own vulnerability.” 

Despite being the victim of a horrific automobile accident that changed her life forever, Christine Rucci is determined to stay positive. In today’s episode of the She Is A Message podcast, Christine shows us what it means to face life’s challenges and smile in the midst of it all. Her struggles and successes are all part of her story and she has learned to embrace every single part.

She teaches us that we don’t necessarily smile because of the pain and difficulty that comes from our struggles. We smile because we know that in the midst of every trial God is there and God is in control.
