This book covers a period from 1966 to 2008. It is an account of the lives of Stephen and Holly Deaubé and their family, beginning at birth and ending in glory. Each was born with the same rare but fatal liver disease. Honest and sometimes graphic, it deals with the everyday joys, heartaches, and struggles that accompany children with liver disease. The landscape is constantly changing, covering a large spectrum of emotions. This story describes in detail the trials and struggles as they occurred, with an honest assessment of their thoughts as they responded to pain, suffering, and death. The book chronicles a journey of faith, beginning from infancy to its final conclusion in Gods sovereign will.
Karis5 Stars Out Of 5I Will Praise you in the Storm: The Story of Stephen and Holly Deaube, a journey of FaithApril 6, 2016KarisQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0. I Will Praise You in the Storm is a true story of faith in God through difficult circumstances that are beyond our control. Through the first diagnosis, hospital visits, long waits in the waiting room, and heartfelt prayers Danny Deaub takes us back through his story. This is the story of Stephen and Holly, the two of his four kids, both of which got the same rare and fatal liver disease.
I wont share the story because the author does a great job of that, but I will share what I enjoyed about the book. The honesty that the author writes with is so clear as he shares regrets, doubts, and emotions. It really caries you right there into the story as its happening. I cried with the family at sad moments and I laughed and smiled at the funny ones. I was with the author in mental anguish as he paced the hallways and said, God, not my will but Thine be done.
I believe, that the author didnt just write words about an experience but used words to have you experience it. I loved the imagery and wording that was used; it helped bring across a lot.
Throughout the book, I enjoyed watching the faith and dependence on God grow and strength the family. However this book isnt just for those that are dealing with tragedy. So much can be gleaned from this book and can be applied to the life of any believer. For those who might not understand Christianity, I encourage you to read this book so you can see just what the results of a faith in a God look like.
(I received a free digital copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.)

Tell us a little about yourself. I retired as a bricklayer in 2007 from California and moved to Monroe, Oregon. This is my first book, a memoir. I will be 66 years old in December, rather old to write my first book. I have not studied writing or have any formal writing experience. I live on ten acres in the mountains and enjoy the peaceful climate of Oregon. I have four children and four grandchildren. My wife Bonnie have been married forty-four years and are active members of the First Baptist church. Junction City.
What was your motivation behind this project? I was motivated when one of my classmates wrote to me after reading some blogs of mine and said "If you did not become a writer, you missed your calling. Two of my children was born with a fatal liver disease. I wanted to tell their story, they are mt inspiration!
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope readers will gain strength and hope from a story that chronicles the pain, and conflict of terminally-ill children. It is a story of faith, hurt, healing and belief. The main themes are God is good, He is in control, and God doesn't make mistakes.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? This book is a deeply emotional and spiritual story. It is intense and sometimes painfully transparent. I have found it has been very therapeutic and a useful tool in sharing with others what I have learned in the care of critically-ill children. I have grown closer to God through these experiences.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Life is unpredictable, and no one knows from one moment to the next what is going to happen: and despite life's unpredictability and, at times indescribable pain, God has been consistently good.
