Casa Grande, Ariz. (PRWEB) March 26, 2014
After receiving bariatric surgery, Daylene Brackbill’s heart arrested, and she struggled to stay alive for nearly a month afterwards. As a husband, father and pastor, Don Brackbill Jr. sought to make sense of the crisis and discovered a real faith and genuine experience with God. He recounts his journey in “Surviving the Shadow: Coping with the Crisis of Life” (published by WestBow Press).
“Surviving the Shadow” looks honestly at issues of faith when circumstances create conditions primed for doubt. Readers are assured that a belief in God can sustain them in moments of personal trial and difficulty.
Excerpt from “Surviving the Shadow”:
“When life was hard, I wanted faith to be easy. I wanted it to be a gift that I only had to receive and open like a birthday present. Instead, faith was a confidence and conviction of the heart that became operational only when I chose to trust God in spite of the circumstances surrounding my life and my wife. I decided that I would have to believe that God was present in that room, even when everything indicated that He was absent and silent in my life.”
