With the desire to encourage individuals battling physical and/or mental issues, authors Richard and Robin Johnson penned “Through the Valley” (published by WestBow Press), a written account of their battle with cancer.
“This story is one of faith in God in spite of the outcome,” they say. “This is a book about people dealing with real life issues.”
The story takes readers through the ups and downs of cancer. It begins with the moment that they both were diagnosed with cancer and takes readers all the way to the authors’ lives today. The book shows readers how, even if their world is clouded in darkness, God is still shining his light. “God can and will help in the midst of what may seem like terrible times,” they say. “He will use what we have to give him, if we allow him to use it.”
An excerpt from “Through the Valley”:
“He is there, always! As I sat in the small waiting area anticipating the results of Robin's colonoscopy, I didn't know what to expect the outcome to be. Our hope was it would be something minor that could be dealt with minimally. We never want to think the worst in these situations, but there I was sitting in an outpatient room now void of my Robin who at that very moment was undergoing a procedure that would ultimately change our lives forever. At that point, a sense of loneliness began to close in on me. All of our families are far from this place. Our closest child was more than six hundred miles from us, and I didn't know what to expect when the doctor emerged from the procedure room. Forty-five minutes to an hour had passed, the door opened to the procedure room, and Robin was wheeled back to her holding area. She was obviously tired and still under the effects of the anesthesia. I leaned over her bed and kissed her and asked her how she did. She awakened with tears, and she looked at me through those beautiful big, green eyes and says the words that no one ever wants to hear.”
