This classic collection of 28 devotions offers a legacy of wisdom and encouragement for those who struggle amidst the adversities of life. Devotions convey the message that yes, life is hard, pain and suffering are real, but there is more--there is an eternal reality on which we can focus and not lose heart!

About the Author:
"When God wants to do an impossible thing He takes an impossible man and crushes him." Alan Redpath

Dave Dravecky frequently uses this quote as he shares his testimony with audiences throughout the country. And for good reason. Dave has lived these words.

In his seventh year in Major League Baseball while pitching for the San Francisco Giants, a cancerous desmoid tumor was discovered in Dave's pitching arm. The next years were a whirlwind of surgery, radiation, pain and depression, all in the glaring light of the media. Eventually, Dave's arm was amputated to stop the spread of the cancer and save his life. Through it all, Dave and Jan Dravecky's faith in God and the love He gave them through others provided the anchor they needed in the midst of their storm.

Dave and Jan Dravecky founded the Outreach of Hope ministry in 1991 in response to the thousands of letters and requests they received from hurting people encouraged by the Dravecky's faith. The mission of the ministry is to offer comfort, encouragement and hope through Jesus Christ to those who suffer from cancer, amputation or serious illness. The mission is accomplished by offering prayer support, referral services and resources for those who are suffering and their families. In addition, support materials are available for churches, healthcare professionals and individuals who work with the suffering.

Dave and Jan are also the best selling authors of eight different inspirational books in addition to publishing The Encourager, a national magazine that addresses the emotional and spiritual aspects of suffering. They were also general editors, along with Joni Eareckson Tada, of The Encouragement Bible, a specialty version of the NIV Bible. Dave has also co-authored two books on baseball, Play Ball and Called Up.

In addition to overseeing the Outreach of Hope, both Dave and Jan are also in great demand nationwide as speakers who can address a wide variety of audiences and topics ranging from motivational to inspirational.
