Reading about the lives and experiences of Christians who, through faith, have overcome trials and tribulations brings us great encouragement and magnifies the grace of God. We often read about men and women of faith who have carried out great exploits. This book tells of a different kind of trial: the daily struggles faced by an ordinary Christian couple as they live with MS. In this honest and, at times, deeply moving account, Les first tells of his childhood, wonderful conversion and meeting Ann, and then of her devastating diagnosis of MS after thirty years of happy marriage. Through sharing his experiences as Ann’s full-time carer, he traces the Lord’s hand working for his and Ann’s good, even in the most challenging circumstances.
