Description
In this candid, vulnerable, and deeply moving memoir, Mike Purdy invites us to walk with him on his unwelcome and uncertain journey as he navigates the uncharted waters of dealing with a lethal cancer - everything from diagnosis and treatments to the emotional and spiritual roller-coaster of the ride. He shares how family and friends have helped sustain and encourage him, ponders his legacy in the world, and seeks to find joy on the journey. For all of us, life is full of uncertainties related to health, careers, finances, family, and relationships. The questions Mike asks are ones we should all consider regardless of our health: - How do we balance between hope and realism without falling into the chasm of despair? - How do we live well when our personal world is falling apart? - How do we live with joy and purpose, despite the sadness that often overwhelms us? - How do we move forward on our uncertain journeys when we don't know the length of our days? Regardless of the challenges in your life, entering Mike's world and hiking with him on his uncertain journey will give you fresh perspective for you to live more fully, thankfully, faithfully, and gracefully in each moment of your life.
