There is no way to escape suffering. Sooner or later each one of us faces terrible loss or disappointment, whether the circumstance is divorce, the death of a loved one, the loss of a career, or a terminal illness. At such times, inspiring stories with happily-ever-after endings may not meet the need. Do Not Lose Heart is a collection of meditations for those who need to hear the truth about how to get through suffering intact.
Do Not Lose Heart is a legacy of encouragement for men and women struggling with the adversities of life. Whether the circumstance is divorce, the death of a loved one, the loss of a career, or a terminal illness, these brief, hope-filled devotions by Dave and Jan Dravecky and visionary paintings by Thomas Kinkade will minister comfort, understanding, and encouragement. Based on 2 Corinthians 4:6-18. Do Not Lose Heart affirms the deep peace that comes from trusting in a wise and loving God.
Dave Dravecky is the best-selling author of eight inspirational books, including his gripping story, Comeback. He and his wife, Jan, live in Denver, Colorado, where Endurance, his ministry to encourage those who are facing serious illness, loss or depression, is located.
Jan Dravecky co-founded Endurance with her husband, former baseball pitcher Dave Dravecky. She and Dave live in Denver. With Dave, she is the coauthor of Do Not Lose Heart and Stand by Me.
