We serve a very real and alive God that desires intimacy with all of us. He is as close as our own breath and yet many of us still miss it.
CYPRESS, Texas (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
In her new book “Don’t Miss It—I Almost Did” (published by CrossBooks), Ellen Dettore shares her personal story of how God helped her cope with her husband’s cancer and untimely death. She reveals to readers the life lessons she gained from the experience – lessons that she would not have learned any other way.
“In 1998, I received the first of three messages from God,” Dettore explains, “‘You will be affected by cancer, but you will be okay.’” She told her husband, John, what she’d heard, but he dismissed it; in the end, so did she. Years later she says, God quickened her spirit, and she was reminded of those messages in 2010 when John was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer.
Dettore relates the signs of her husband’s cancer she saw only in retrospect and talks about life as a widow. She shares tales from her past, using them to show readers how God was by her side, preparing and shaping her for the hard times to come. She speaks openly and frankly about her journey, revealing the difficulty of caring for her husband during his illness, the grief over his death, and the strength she found within the Lord’s arms.
“We serve a very real and alive God that desires intimacy with all of us. He is as close as our own breath and yet many of us still miss it.”
