Turn­ing hurt to love

Scott Sta­bile’s mes­sage of love over­com­ing ad­ver­sity is tak­ing the world by storm

Spirit and Destiny - - Trending -

‘ How­ever big your highs or how­ever low your lows are in life, I think ev­ery­one has the same spir­i­tual les­son to learn,’ says 48-year-old spir­i­tual au­thor and in­ter­net sen­sa­tion Scott Sta­bile, from Michi­gan.

This les­son, he be­lieves, is to rise above tragedy and hard­ship by prac­tis­ing em­pa­thy, and it’s a mes­sage he’s been shar­ing through daily posts on his Face­book page since 2012.

Within months, 2,000 peo­ple were re­li­giously read­ing Scott’s posts, and in five years he’s clocked up 350,000 fol­low­ers. Now he’s writ­ten his first book, Big Love: The Power of Liv­ing with a Wide-Open Heart.

What makes Scott’s mes­sage so po­tent is that he’s writ­ing from ex­pe­ri­ence. It’s hard to think of a harsher hand be­ing dealt by life than the one he suf­fered.
