Born and reared in the suburbs of Corpus Christi, Texas, Keith Lawrence was the youngest of three children. Since his father worked in an oil refinery for twenty seven years, Keith had a very comfortable life growing up. He considers himself to be a very contented simple type person. He also considers himself to be the direct opposite of his wife, which led to a great deal of compromise. Their ability to work together and take on any challenge proved to be a huge asset as they fought the incurable lung disease identified as Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. This is the story of an incredible journey of discovery, success, pain and two people loving each other through the process of drawing closer to a loving God. Keith has worked as a refinery worker for twenty six years. He has one son, a married daughter, and two grandchildren. Living as a widower has afforded Keith a lot of freedom to commit to God's plan and follow Him in many ministries. He enjoys working with youth and disaster relief or just helping those in need. He feels God has blessed his life beyond anything he could have ever asked.
