Everyone will face potentially life-threatening crises in their life. Xulon Press author Jerry Armstrong, Ph.D. faced almost certain death when he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a cancer of the myeloid line of blood cells, but found hope from many sources--including his relationships with his family members and Christ. In It's All Yours, Lord: A Family's Journey of Purpose and Hope ($16.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-780-6; $26.99, hardcover, 978-1-61579-781-3), the author's new release, readers will go along on a family's journey through crisis and experience a dramatic example of body ministry at its best, as thousands prayed and encouraged the family through their tribulations. The accompanying "Thirty-One Days of Hope" devotional series will be a practical help in readers' respective walks with God.
"The objective of the book is to assist others in finding purpose and hope in their walk with Christ," the author explains. "[I hope] readers will be challenged to grow in their walk with Christ, that they will find God's purpose for their lives, that they will know where to find hope."
Dr. Armstrong--a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and the University of Illinois--completed a 20-year Air Force career, serving in research and development and program management positions and achieving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. After retiring from a position as president of Legacy Ministries Foundation in 2007, he turned to writing as a way to chronicle how pursuing God's purpose for his life helped touch many lives during the journey.
