Overview

Gina Pastore's life changed in an instant! She never dreamed the title of her husband's book Shattered would happen to her. After all, she and Frank were childhood sweethearts whose lives unfolded like a Hollywood movie: he found fame pitching for the Cincinnati Reds; she tended to the home fires with a son and daughter. It was during Frank's big league career, though, that they turned their priorities from materialism to the things in life that really matter: God, family, and integrity. When Frank retired, he went into ministry, but even such a noble pursuit had its difficulties. Then in 2004, Frank became the host of the Frank Pastore Show on KKLA, a Christian radio station in Los Angeles. His weekday program quickly became popular, leading to numerous speaking requests. And then one afternoon--while commuting home on his Honda VTX 1800 motorcycle--their lives changed forever in an instant. What follows is Gina's account of the "rest of the story"--and a reminder that in times of trouble and tribulation, God calls us to persevere and trust in Him.
