Imagine living in an environment where we could depend on consistent encouragement rather than criticism, and imagine the impact this would have on our children, our grandchildren, our marriage, our workplace, or our church fellowship. It sounds refreshing, but how would we create, or even describe, such an environment? Read more in Chapter nine.

The apostle John recorded Jesus’ words when he said, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
We are to be at peace and to take heart in the midst of all the trouble we are facing in 2020-2021?! Really?! How? Read more in chapter 5.

I do not need to understand everything about God to express my gratitude to Him, place my hope in Him, and rest in His unfailing love and goodness. Read more in chapter four.

This book does not read like a new author. It reads like a book written by a well seasoned author with much experience under his belt. I pray this book will be a blessing to others as it was to me.

I found myself challenged with some chapters, while others moved me to tears as Bob opened up his heart, sharing his pain and healing.

This book was exactly what I needed during this crazy time of Covid. Bob’s words encouraged me and gave me hope during this time of waiting, loss, and uncertainty.
