“This new book by Rob Prince powerfully addresses some of the most troublesome questions of the Christian life as he takes readers on his personal journey of living with almost constant pain. He uses his life experience to open a big window into demonstrating how we can have a vital relationship with Christ and a meaningful ministry in His kingdom work without having all of our questions answered about why good people struggle with innocent pain and suffering. The book offers renewed hope and constant reminders that God is continually at work in our lives giving us daily victory! I think every Christian who has experienced the dark night of the soul should read this book.”

Dr. Terry Tsue (Physician in Chief, University of Kansas Cancer Center) endorses: Chronic Pain– Finding Hope in the Midst of Suffering. “This book was a pleasure to read. It was a reflection of all our lives. It tells us that not only does our walk stray left and right, it is also filled with valleys and mountains. It shows us that we are not alone during every step of that walk if we try and abide in Him. He holds our hand and guides us with His perfect timing, not ours. By reading Pastor Rob’s journey, we see our own. Through his encouraging words about His actions, every reader will gain patience, comfort and hope.”
5) A volcano-like eruption from one of the bed sheet clad angels as a result of the combustible mixture of three candy canes, two donuts, a handful of peanuts, a cup of warm eggnog, the Christmas program jitters, bright lights on the platform, and a possible touch of a flu bug. Simply put the angels will no longer be “sweetly singing o’er the plains.” (It will be more like barfing o’er the shepherds and wisemen).
4) The hoard of parental paparazzi toting video cameras and iPhones causes such a disturbance vying for front row seats fifteen minutes before the program begins that two ushers, four security team members and Sister Annabelle are forced to put a headlock on one dad and escort a grandpa out of the sanctuary by his Santa Claus neck tie. Interestingly, the organist prelude music selection during the commotion is “God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman.”
3) The Barn Yard Brawl. When toddlers dressed up as cows and lambs for a cuteness effect in the nativity scene, begin to butt heats and act very much real cattle and sheep. The ensuing brouhaha causes the bathrobe-wearing shepherds to become junior Rambos using their staffs to put down the rebellion; the angels run for the hills; and the wisemen lose their Burger King borrowed crowns. (I will neither confirm nor deny that years ago a certain Olivet attending, freshman preacher’s kid was involved in such a scandalous Christmas production. I sincerely hope our poor program director has finally ended her therapy sessions).
2). Two words: Pyrotechnics malfunction
and 1.) When through the message of the Christmas carols sung and the parts recited– one (just one– although even more people would make the morning more memorable—still when one…) boy or girl, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, brother, sister, neighbor, second cousin three times removed, or anyone else discover that Jesus Christ really is “God with us” and that Christmas is all about God becoming man and displaying His tremendous forgiving love for all people everywhere.
“I am one of the 45 million Americans who suffer from migraine headaches. I will never forget my first migraine headache when I was a freshman in college. I had never experienced such pain. I cried, I prayed, and I asked God to “take me on home”. My parents took me to the emergency room and after some strong medicine, I finally got some relief. Migraine medicine is now a part of my “must-have” travel medicine. Fortunately, my migraine headaches are now much less frequent. My friend, Rob Prince shares in an open and honest manner his journey as a migraine sufferer. He shares the lessons that he has learned in a humorous and Biblical way. Rob has a unique ability to find and communicate humor in all parts, even the painful parts of life. I would highly recommend this book for all those who suffer from migraines, chronic pain, or any disease. I would recommend the book to anyone who has a family member, friend, or spouse who experiences chronic pain. Pastor Prince addresses and answers some of the fundamental questions that we all ask when we go through difficult times or experience unanswered prayers. In the book, he gives insight into the Word of God and application to our lives. As you read the book, you will laugh, cry, pray, and most of all draw closer to the One who says He will never leave us nor forsake us.”
