Unprecedented. Life is crazy right now in ways we’ve never seen before. For some, COVID-19 means extra work hours as they perform essential services. Others face economic hardship or stressful hours in isolation. Some are enjoying extra hours with family and a break from normal routine. Personally, the lock-down in New Zealand means I have far less ministry responsibilities and four weeks of time to give to writing my current work-in-progress. It is a gift and I want to use it well.
With all the disruptions we need to focus on God. No matter how dark or stressful the days may be, God is good. He is in control. And he is using the present crisis in good ways we can barely imagine.
If you are locked-down, this is a great time to strengthen your faith in the purposes of God. The Kindle edition of I Survived is now just 99 cents. It shows how five Bible characters survived their disasters and how we can learn from them to survive our own.
When a baby dies from head injuries, an innocent babysitter is accused and uncertainty forces experts to define the edges of truth. This intensely personal story will grip your heart and challenge your faith. It gives a vivid account of Mary Weaver, who was presumed guilty of shaking and slamming a baby to death, and one of her lawyers, Steve Brennecke, who fought to clear her name. Dr. Ruth Ramsey calls this book, “a wake-up call for anyone who is ever involved in childcare.”

I Survived! gives a personal, inside view of these five Bible characters who survived disaster: Jeremiah, Jonah, Joseph, Paul, and Job. It uses examples from the Mary Weaver story in every chapter. These studies will help you think through questions like these:
- If God is in control, why is my world a disaster?
- If God hates unfairness, how should I respond to it?
- If God controls everything, why doesn’t life make more sense?
- If God wants me to succeed, why does he make life so hard?
- If God is good, why does he allow senseless suffering?
