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 am 67 year old retired bricklayer born in Long Beach, California. I am married to a wonderful wife, Bonnie for over 46 years and we have four children, three boys and a girl. I moved to Oregon in 2007, and enjoy the great outdoors. This is my first book released in November, 2013.
What was your motivation behind this project? I was motivated and inspired by two of my children, Stephen and Holly Deaubé, for which the book is largely based upon.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope readers will realize how short life is, and it isn't always fair. Long life is promised to no one. One's faith is essential in understanding pain, suffering, and death. The ultimate purpose is glorifying God. God is good, God is in control, and God doesn't make mistakes are themes that are woven throughout this true life story.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? The awareness that many, many people have experienced the loss of a child and the grief can be overwhelming. My experience have made me more sensitive toward others.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I am a Christian, and this book is evidence that God's grace is sufficient to endure all things, even death. There is hope beyond the grave, "...we grieve not as others who have no hope."
