The Way Life Is

Overview



Being in love and full of anticipation of a great life does not shield young couples from unfair and unexpected challenges and trauma. This book is not an elaborate "how-to" or "self-help" manual for when the going gets rough. It's just a true story about a couple that continued to put one foot in front of the other when they would rather have given up; it's about love and faith and standing fast against adversity.

Overview



Being in love and full of anticipation of a great life does not shield young couples from unfair and unexpected challenges and trauma. This book is not an elaborate "how-to" or "self-help" manual for when the going gets rough. It's just a true story about a couple that continued to put one foot in front of the other when they would rather have given up; it's about love and faith and standing fast against adversity.

The Way Life Is takes readers into the home of a young couple trying to accommodate their own needs, desires and demons while coping with the special needs of their children: Sara, born with a rare and life threatening disability known as Prader-Willi Syndrome; Gina, who arrived needing open-heart surgery in order to survive; and Andrew, an active and exceptionally healthy little boy stuck in the middle.

Meet the Author



Rick Johnson is an award-winning writer, editor and columnist. His family, which is his passion, and his journey with them, has required much of him. He responds with action deeply rooted in principle, tucking away all that he learns along the way, gleaning insight, truth and inspiration. If you need a fresh perspective that links practical action with principled reflection, Rick is someone who will guide you to ask yourself the questions that provide clarity and direction. This process is second nature to him and is evident in all of his work.
