If you knew you had only a few years to live, how would you use that time? Would you allow despair to overwhelm you or would you find a way to still have a life? How would you keep the fear of death from ruining the days you had left? Many people have considered these questions in theory, but when Dave Chilcoat was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, a fatal illness for which there is no treatment and no cure, he had to face them in reality. The day he received his diagnosis Dave began writing a journal. Then, to keep family and friends updated on his condition, he began posting his journal online. He wrote weekly for nearly three years and his chronicle was eventually read by tens of thousands around the world. This book is the heart of that journal, the living account of an unshakable faith in God's goodness and grace, and a heart open to God's purposes.

Journals are always such a great way to learn about others and ourselves. Beth was gracious to allow us into the journal of her husband, Dave.
As Dave wrote in his online journal about the health issues of having Lou Gehrigs disease, he also shares about the lessons he learns, the things he has taken for granted and the everlasting love and faithfulness of our Father in Heaven.
This journal will have you crying, thinking and remembering of all the things God has done in your life.
