“Our Amazing Journey”: a heartwarming true love story. “Our Amazing Journey” is the creation of published author Gary Lee Van, a Christian musician and aspiring children’s book author who lives in Bethalto, Illinois, with his wife of eight years.

Van shares an early memory with the love of his life, “The next event I can remember is the trip my family made to visit the Moulton family in Illinois. I was four at the time and I can remember it, just like it was yesterday. Katie’s family was living in the tiny little house in which my parents helped them move into. Katie and I were riding tricycles up and down the driveway when all of a sudden, Katie took off down the road and disappeared around the corner.
We were like glue, always together, but when she said that she was going to ride her tricycle to the street behind her house, I chickened out. Instead, I ran up to the front door and told Clarice that Katie ran away, or maybe, peddled away. Katie’s mom told me, ‘Don’t worry, she will be back in a minute,’ but when I started crying she got in her car and drove around the block. By the time she reached the street behind their house, I saw Katie peddling back to me and I was happy again. Clarice returned, got out of her car and rolled her eyes at me as if to say, ‘I told you so.’”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Gary Lee Van’s new book is a joyful celebration of two lives interwoven by God’s hand.

Tracing the journey from their earliest memories growing up together as best friends, the decades of separation as teenagers, and how they found each other again, readers will come away touched to tears and awestruck at God’s orchestration.
