One Step at a Time
To celebrate his fiftieth birthday, pastor and avid runner Tim Hoekstra ran an astonishing fifty miles and raised fifty thousand dollars for clean water projects in Kenya. And he gives God all the glory. As Tim learned firsthand, when we rely on the Lord in our weakness, He empowers us beyond our wildest dreams.
Miles to Run Before We Sleep vividly depicts Tims journey of faith, perseverance and total submission to Christ. Each motivating devotional entry will inspire you to study Scripture and pursue your destiny in Christ, even if it means taking some risks. Take one step at a time, embrace a life of unrestrained faith and expect the impossible.
Tim Hoekstra is a leader at Suburban Life Community Church, which he planted more than twenty years ago, and coordinator of the Steps Foundation, a running, walking and mentoring program for kids and adults in under-resourced communities. He also served as the associate director of church relations for World Vision Chicago. He is passionate about uniting ethnically diverse groups and serving the impoverished and marginalized. Tim and Laura, his wife of twenty-nine years, live in River Forest, Illinios, and have three children. They are expecting their first grandchild.
