This is not a book of magic formulas to make your life successful. Neither is it a commentary on the crisis of the world around us and how it needs to be fixed. What this book is, in essence, is a story – the story of our family, and its journey back from overwhelming tragedy. It’s a story about rediscovering hope in the midst of crisis – hope that goes deeper than despair, further than faith. It’s a story of hope that goes beyond hope, even in the face of God’s seeming silence. And it’s the story of rekindled hope in the Greater Dream – the dream we were all built for. But this is not just our story – at least not exclusively. If we were to recount our story simply for the sake of telling it, we wouldn’t bother. It’s too personal and too painful to walk through again just for the sake of getting it out there. We’re telling our story because we’ve come to the conclusion that if God can use what we’ve walked through to help shed light on someone else’s journey, then we’re willing to revisit the pain again.
