It is the light of dawn that follows the darkest night; it is the gratitude in knowing your prayer has been answered. And yet the answer is no; it is the embrace of a love that moves mountains, that promises to hold you close when the world around you saddens, disappoints, even destroys - it is the wonderful power of faith in a loving God to transform your life. In this moving collection, seventy people from every walk of life share true stories about those moments when faith broke through despair and brought them strength, direction, hope, and opportunity. Their poignant stories are bound together by a common thread: God's gracious gift of faith touching their lives.
