“A story of praise and healing, though not in the popular sense; it’s a drama of marital love and faithfulness that prevails against great odds.” —Rev. Sherwin (Chic) Broersma, D. Min., Retired RCA Pastor “Mark’s journey into death leads you beyond the struggle to a hallowed place of surrender. You will be both encouraged and equipped through this book.” —Sarah Schieber, singer, songwriter, author, speaker “Find hope in the midst of deep grief and loss. Take and read!” —Rev. Keith A. Derrick, Dir. of Journey, Center for Learning at Western Theological Seminary What happens when you have God’s blessing nailed down, and then without warning an evil intruder rips everything apart? I had a corner on the good life. Driven by my material appetite, strategically balanced by religion, I desperately played both sides. Then God intervened and moved me along a winding path which led to a good marriage, two kids, and a home situated comfortably on a small horse farm. Everything changed in an instant with the discovery of a lump, but some things changed in ways I could never have imagined. By probing the joy and heartache of the past in the redemptive light of precious promises kept, this narrative paints a picture of beauty defiled unfolding to startling beauty revealed. You’re invited on a journey of discovery through my tragic story of true blessing.
