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 66 years old, and a retired bricklayer from California. I am a born-again christian believer. God blessed my wife Bonnie and I with four wonderful children, and four grandchildren. I enjoy the great outdoors. I am not famous, nor a writer by trade, but a writer by fate.
What was your motivation behind this project? Our two children, Holly and Stephen, who were born with a fatal liver disease. How they lived and how they died was my inspiration.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Hope and encouragement through trials, suffering, and even death.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? It was a labor of love, though at times, emotionally draining. My walk with God has greatly increased, and I can see the finger of God working out His plan in all of this.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Life isn't always fair, but life is always good. Losing a child is never easy...losing two is almost unbearable, but it is sustainable. When one enters the "storms of life," you will never be the same. Either you will run to God or you will run away from Him. If I have learned anything, I have learned God is good, He is in control, and God doesn't make mistakes...
