PatB5 Stars Out Of 5Gods PlanJune 5, 2013PatBQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Everyone has trials to go thru in this life, and this is a well written book showing how God has a plan for each one of us, even in our frustrations of not getting our way. I am well aware that I think my plan is best, but God shows us in this book that our plan is not necessarily in His plan. Very motivational, and more miracles will occur as a result of people reading this book.
Tish53Hammond, INAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5God is always at work behind the scenes!January 28, 2013Tish53Hammond, INAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Are you or a loved one facing a seemingly impossible situation? I encourage you to lay hold on a copy of this book. You may find yourself laughing or maybe even crying. One thing I know for sure, you will find yourself inspired and stronger in your faith and confidence in God. Troy shares his feelings with such clarity and transparency that you are right there with him believing, cheering him on, and having hope against hope as he faces each challenge.
God continues to do extraordinary things in the lives of ordinary people and that includes you and me. Troy's story reminds us that God is ever mindful of us all. He will use the good, bad and even painful things we experience in life; He has a way of working them out in our favor. We must continue to trust Him and not give up. Your situation is no exception...
I highly recommend this excellent "read", it will bless, educate, inform and challenge you as you scale the mountains in your life!
Annie732009SE MissouriAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Deserves more than 5 stars!!!January 11, 2013Annie732009SE MissouriAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was such an amazing story that can be an inspiration to anyone! To think what Troy had to go through and here I complain when I have a bad day with my RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis).
Troy shares with us how he came to God and then he started having problems with his kidneys. This is a powerful book with many up's and down's. I celebrated when him and his family and friends celebrated. This will be a book I will keep on my Kindle and re-read it from time to time especially when I am feeling down about my health because I know my health could be so much worse. I finished it today while I was getting my six week Remicade IV infusion for my RA. What a way to end this powerful book in the doctor's office hooked up to an IV because I hate getting my infusions because its an all day thing but I won't complain anymore!
Thank you Troy for allowing me the chance to read your book and review it. It has been a blessing and I truly was touched by it.

What was your motivation behind this project? Many people have asked me "What made you decide to write a book?" The answer is really very simple! Imagine for a moment; You have struggled and battled for your life! The odds were always against you and seemed like nothing ever went your way. Just when things looked absolutely hopeless and you didn't stand a chance. Your laying on deaths door step! THEN! 48 Hours later... The God of the universe reaches down (in the most amazing, miraculous way) and hands you the ultimate second chance. Then does the same thing for your brother the very next day!! ALL because a stranger from a 1,000 miles away, was convicted by God to give his kidney away.... I knew all of these things happened for a reason! God revealed afterwards, the reason for the pain, was to bring Hope, the reason for the Hope was to bring the miracle, and the reason for the miracle was to write this book!! God gave me a second chance and with it, THIS STORY! So you see... The answer is simple. I had to write it because God wanted me to. He wouldn't have created such a dramatic story if He didn't want it told. What would you have done?....
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? This book really isn't just one persons story of trial - its every ones story, because it's God's story. Through it you will learn to "not give up", that what may seem like a closed door is really just a redirection to something even better. This is a beautiful inspirational book of love, struggles, Faith, and Hope. And when a person is feeling down or lost in their own troubles it will be an excellent resource to read over and over again. It'll make you laugh, cry, hope, reflect, and by the end.. Praise in victory!
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? My writing became passionate, because it is was God directed. I was inspired, encouraged, and felt God's greatness; through reliving the amazing experiences that God allowed me to live, as I wrote them down.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I have always been encouraged and inspired by the writings of Max Lucado. His easy to read and high impacting style, has allowed many (non-typical) readers to be blessed. Being one of those (non-typical) readers... I have modeled my writing after his.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: How a stranger's kidney saved my life... And my brother's too! A true story that will strengthen faith, build Hope, and renew your belief in miracles! You'll become part of the story as you laugh, cry, hope, and by the end.. Praise in victory "In my darkest moment as I lay on deaths door step, Hope showed up in a miraculous way! A 1,000 miles away, a stranger felt a call to give with nothing expected in return. Little did he know that he had the rarest of kidneys and he would not just save one life.. But two!
