Discovering hope and healing in the midst of life’s deepest valleys

How will we respond amidst life’s hardest trials? How in the passing of a loved one do we turn our earthly sorrow into heavenly hope? How, when we have no strength to face another day, do we truly lean on the Lord, trust in the power of His word and see that all of His plans towards us are for our good?

Award-winning singer/songwriter Jeremy Camp wrestled with these questions and others from the depths of anguish and encountered a solace that has carried him far beyond easy answers.

Jeremy’s personal story has inspired thousands since his debut album in 2002. He has now penned this story along with co-writer Phil Newman. Jeremy’s book is a personal reflection on his story of the passing of his first wife, Melissa, to cancer just months after marrying, and how he has grown in his relationship with God through the past ten years. This touching book portrays a full-circle account of Jeremy’s story that has impacted his music.

“I’ve wanted to put this story in book form for many years, but it just hasn't been the right time until now,” states Jeremy Camp about the timing of the book. “God was and is still working in my life, but this book is a result of the last ten years of pain, healing, restoration and new beginnings.”

Fans have heard Jeremy share his story on stage and in interviews. Many do not know and will no doubt be touched by the complete story and details of his testimony and his heartbreaking story about his first wife, Melissa. Readers will also learn more about Jeremy’s modest life growing up in Indiana, his struggles growing into adolescence and how the start of his music ministry began to open more doors than he ever thought possible. The book also shares of his unexpected friendship with Adrienne Liesching, which eventually brought about healing and restoration as well as a new life together. They have two little girls and just welcomed their baby boy, Egan Thomas, in August,

Jeremy walked through fire and emerged on the other side—not only refined and restored, but also intently focused on proclaiming the reason for his hope.

MY THOUGHTS:
I had only heard the basic facts of Jeremy's story that has impacted so much of his music so I was delighted to receive a review copy. If you have been touched by the authenticity of Jeremy's music, you will enjoy getting to know the heart of the man behind the music. More than a story of love and loss, this is the story of God's grace in the midst of heartache and the beauty only He can bring from ashes.
