From the Author: “The front cover is symbolic of my children, for whom this book was written. They are all loved and cherished in my heart and therefore, each one is represented by a piece of my heart. The missing piece of the heart and the butterfly flying overhead are symbolic of my son, Daniel, who died shortly before his first birthday. Losing Daniel was the hardest thing I have faced in this life and he took a piece of my heart with him to heaven when he left. The butterfly is flying toward the sun, which is a representation of God and our eternal life to come. On the back cover, there is a lighthouse. This lighthouse is Jesus, who leads us and guides us through this wild ride we call ‘life.’”
David’s personal journal that miraculously became this book was started in 2001 with the intention of being a gift to his daughters in his later years so they would know what their dad thought about things in this life. The purpose was to give them a glimpse of him even after he was gone, to bring comfort and courage to them by leaving actual “pieces of his heart” behind in the form of his written words. But God kept pressing David to share it more widely as a blessing to anyone who wished to read it. The hope is that these stories will spark thoughts about God’s constant involvement and intervention in our lives and stir a sense of how much He cares about every detail that is important to us. David resides in Idaho, with his wife, Denice, and works as an engineer at Micron Technologies. He is the proud father of six beautiful daughters and “Papa Dave” to six grandchildren, five boys and one girl.
