Why do bad things happen to good people?
It's an age-old question, and it's the one Richard and Daphne Gaspard asked on a daily basis. For over two years, as they watched their daughter, Katie, suffer immensely, due to a lengthy battle with a rare blood disease and its complications, they waited on God to answer their prayers for healing.
But was God really even listening? How could He allow this to happen? What was His plan? Where was the miraculous healing so many others had received? Why not them?
There were so many unanswered questions, but the Gaspard family determined to stay faithful to God in a season of great pain and unbelievable uncertainty.
Still Rising chronicles Katie's story, her family's fight to honor God, and tells a narrative of suffering, trust, and seeing God's hand in the midst of an intensely painful journey.
