When Sorrow is Joy
From the author: This book began as a memoir of my high school years-1944 to 1947. It was written because I've always been grateful to have been part of a Church Youth Group that empowered me, gave me a sense of purpose. Soon, the book began to develop a thesis: if parents want to help their adolescent children gain confidence and maturity they need to help the child connect with some organized community, be it an orchestra, a chorus, a sport, whatever makes the child want to work at that community's purpose. I believe adolescents need to gain the idea that they are not loners, but successful participants in their chosen community's world.
