Product Description

Building Hope is a first person account of Dan Wallrath, a self-described "average Joe" who was preparing to retire when he felt an undeniable pull to help a specific group of heroes, providing them with mortgage-free custom-built homes. Dan shares the God-orchestrated events that led him to start Operation Finally Home (OFH) and gripping stories of new beginnings amidst physical, mental, and financial hardships that war-wounded soldiers and their families face once home from war.
With even a small amount of faith, you too can see God work in a mighty way as you seek to serve someone in need. God wants you to say yes—and then stretch out in faith with your unique talents and resources to further his kingdom and build hope around you today.

Author Bio

DAN WALLRATH was a custom homebuilder in Texas for thirty years. In that time he served on numerous boards within the building industry, including the board of directors of the National Association of Home Builders, Texas Association of Builders, and the Greater Houston Builders Association. Dan was also president of the Bay Area Builders Association. In 2005, he founded Operation FINALLY HOME, a nonprofit organization providing mortgage-free custom homes to military heroes and the widows of the fallen who have sacrificed much to defend America’s freedoms and way of life. Dan was named a CNN Hero in 2010 and was the guest of honor of Marine Corps Commandant General James F. Amos at the Marine Corps Sunset Parade hosted at the War Memorial in Washington, DC in 2013. In December that same year, Dan was featured in a CNN documentary about Operation FINALLY HOME. Dan and his wife Carol reside in Texas. They have two sons and four grandchildren.

Editorial Reviews

"Dan Wallrath embodies the spirit of service. His story is a testament to the compelling nature of giving. The veterans he helps are inspired by his actions, further motivating him to serve those who have served."
J. R. Martinez, actor, motivational speaker, US Army veteran

"Building Hope is a wonderful reflection as to how one man, with God’s help, can make a profound difference in this world. Dan Wallrath’s story is both compelling and inspirational. His approach to helping others starts with one home renovation for a wounded warrior and builds to 150 homes in a ten-year period of time. In today’s society, we all must focus on not only helping ourselves but helping others as well. Building Hope gives us all a road map to follow to accomplish just that. Magnificent book."
– Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Rick Lynch, US Army

"Dan walks in rhythm with God’s plan and purpose for his life, guided by the example of the Son. As you read the book, you will quickly come to know the limitless, untapped power that resides in each of us just beneath the surface of our outer being, waiting for a yes to God’s will and calling. Mr. Wallrath’s patriotic bend made him a perfect candidate for service to our wounded warriors. His genuineness comes through in every sentence, every word. We are fortunate he was chosen for this mission. And blessed he was not given peace until he said, ’Yes.’"
– Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Willie Williams, USMC

"Folks, Dan Wallrath is an American success story—a story where the good guy wins. We need more of these stories these days, when it sometimes seems that the ’bad guys’ are winning. Dan has been helping to change a lot of lives for the better. Read all about it in his new book. I did."
Larry Gatlin, country music singer/songwriter

"This book chronicles a journey of giving: how one man could hear a calling no one else did and how, in answering it, goes on a mission that miraculously puts people who share that vision with him on his path. The result changes lives for those soldiers and their families, who give of themselves for our freedoms."
Victor Sansone, retired ABC Radio executive

"Dan Wallrath is a great American, period."
Kid Rock
