In Sickness and in Health: A Love Story" is a true story, but not all of the story. I have been in ministry for fifty years, and the need to help people see that they can be what God wants them to be, has never been more needed than right now. This book is written to show an example of a lady who gave her life to living for God while facing the challenges of a debilitating disease. This book shows how a person can be real in the face of adversity. It has been written also to show how individuals can relate and contribute to people who face painful uncertainties. It is a book of a family trying to figure out how to live one day at a time. It is a book that shows the need for people to understand God has given us value. It is a book of hope when it appears there is nothing left for which to live. It is about a mindset, a determination, a conviction, all surrounded in love.
This book is about a lady, while quiet and introverted, who still touched lives in many places of the world. It is about her husband who cared deeply for her, and together, God used them to show others that they can trust God in difficult times. I hope you find the golden nugget of encouragement in this book that will make a difference in your life, your marriage, and your family.
"My late husband, Dr. J.C. (Jim) Crabtree and I have known Tom and Jackie Amlin for most of their adult lives and witnessed their strength and dignity as they faced a debilitating disease that would forever change their lives. Only eternity will reveal the impact of their ministry together! Read Tom's story and be blessed!" - Esther A. Crabtree
