Have you ever wondered what it’s like to fight cancer at sixteen? Have you ever asked yourself how someone could be diagnosed with cancer and still believe there’s a God or that something good could actually come of it? Have you ever considered what it’s like to live after being struck with such a catastrophe? When I was sixteen years old, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. While in the hospital, many people gave me journals and pens and told me to use the gift God had given me to write. Not long after I began my journaling process, God laid it on my heart that I would someday publish my journal to encourage others. Three years later, my story is published just for you. I pray that it makes an impact on your own story. After all, that’s why we’re here, to make an impact, leave a legacy, and be love, all on behalf of Christ. I hope your perspective is transformed by the beauty of Christ as you step into my world and witness it shatter and heal in a way only explained by the God of the universe.
Whether you are hiding in a wine press of despair or standing at the end of a dock in a storm, sometimes taking the next step seems impossible and outrageous. How can I go on … becomes a monster in the dark. Anger and confusion close in, and God’s still, small voice can no longer be heard. As you read these stories you will see victory emerge out of despair as God does what only God can do.
You want to move closer to God, but you are intimidated by the bigness of the journey. You think it takes a big commitment, a big Bible, a big church, and big religious words—so either you don’t take the first step at all, or you get stuck somewhere and never move forward.
This book is for you.
Each story offers inspiration to help you move closer to God through the small stuff in life—a cup of coffee, a grocery list, or fast-food French fries. You may never look at a roller coaster the same way again!
These real life glimpses of God will surprise you with their simplicity and amaze you with their message.

The advice in this book is the most useful I have ever heard. I tell all my single friends about it. I definitely used it when I was dating, and now that I’m happily married, I see things in my husband and I can say, “I knew this was the man I was marrying!” For me it is a great comfort.” Tirsa S. Stewart “So You Want to Get Married? is a concise and memorable checklist of five of the most important aspects to consider in a mate before making the big decision of marriage. It helped me sift through many different candidates as I searched for the man of my dreams. Now that I am living my fairy tale with him, I continue to share the five finger analysis with all my single friends in hopes that they will also be able to find a wonderful, loving companion to spend life and eternity with.” Arisa S. Field “The “Five Fingers” theory is what taught me what is essential to a good marriage. It does not teach that everyone needs to be perfect---to the contrary, it teaches that all people have flaws and that is normal. The question is whether you are willing to accept and live happily with the “flaws” of the one you are considering spending the rest of your life with. These are five things that no man/woman should look past when considering marriage.” Azalea S. Klein “It was hard growing up without ever having a boyfriend until I was 23. But the five finger rule is what kept me from settling! I now see that I avoided a lot of heart ache and bad choices by never getting serious with someone who didn’t meet my basic five finger criteria. I am also grateful that while my husband is not perfect, I did get all five fingers... even the pinkie!”. Stacey S. Carruth
