Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story's life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Their lives would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible. But the devastating news was that no cure existed to restore Martin's short-term memory, eyesight, and other complications. The fairy-tale life Laura had dreamed of was no longer possible. And yet in struggling with God about how to live with broken dreams, Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus.
Laura helps us understand we aren't the only ones whose lives have taken unexpected turns. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith and shows how, despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways. And it was not because of their faith but because of the faithfulness of their God.
God may not fix everything. In fact, although your situation might not ever change or get better, with Jesus you can.

This book was such a blessing! I had not heard Laura Story's life-story before. Her life is a testimony to trusting God in the midst of your circumstances one step and one day at a time.
Full of wisdom and insight into the struggles of life. Laura was vulnerable and brave as she shared her struggles with living with prayers not answered the way she wanted and unmet expectations.
I am dealing with seizures for the second time in my life and I was wondering why me and what is the purpose of me going through this again, but after listening to this book it really helped me to understand God will get the Glory out of everything we go through and it will make my Faith stronger in him. thank you for sharing.
What a remarkable story! Whether you are experiencing a struggle or not, this is a book that will change your perspective. Many Christians see Christ as a vending machine. If we do this or that, we will get what we want. However, we should not serve Him because of what He can do for us. We should serve Him because we love Him. And even when he doesn't "fix" our problems, we must be ready to declare- It Is Well with My Soul.
If you live with chronic illness, or ongoing disappointments, this story of one couple's life will inspire you to choose God's perspective one more day, and then another, and another. I will be listening to this book again as needed when my "God tank" gets on low.
