Publisher's Summary

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.

    "FANTASTIC READ"

    READ THE BOOK IN LESS THAN A WEEK. LOVED IT. SPENT TIME LISTENING TO THE OCEAN WAVES WHILE READING, THAT WAS A PLUS.

    "Touching & encouraging"

    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.

    "A MUST Listen for all Christians"

    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.

    "Another Must-Read"

    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.

    "Thankful for Encouragement"

    Through Laura's story I was encouraged in my own struggles. Her love for God an his love for us is evident. I recommend this book even to those not in the mist of trial.

    "Amazing and Powerful"

    Very eye opening! Every trial we go through is an opportunity to trust God. Maybe our idea of what we want isn't at all what God has in store for us because He has bigger plans. This book is inspirational and raw in Laura's honesty. I really connected with her.
