Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Having just made a cross-country move, Jim expected that his new assignment from God was to teach in a small college in Indiana. He wasn't prepared for the task of dealing with the onset of his wife's battle for her life. A wide prayer network began. With personal reflections on a painful, years-long ordeal of cancer and heart disease, this book is the compilation of those insights, as well as insights on faith, illness, and healing. A special section gives advice on "how to think" and "what to do" when faced with life-threatening illness. This is a remarkable true story of a husband's love for his sick wife.
