Born and raised in one of the Dutch Reformed enclaves that surround Chicago and Lake Michigan like a string of pearls, author Garry Leep found himself overwhelmed by the ever-present influences of the church, the Bible, and an often-misguided perception of God. But the eternal itch did not die, immortality of soul stood its ground. Wading through the jungle of biblical confusion and contradiction, until finally after forty years, God and his universe all made sense. Life was good, marriage was good, business was good; even God was good. But the eternal itch would not subside, Leep wanted more, and in this desire made a crucial decision. Almost immediately, his life began to deconstruct, ultimately to his greatest loss-losing the woman he loved to divorce-bringing him to the deepest depths of grief and despair.
Yet on his three-year journey of heartache and pain, Leep went from the outposts of sadness to finding communion with the most beautiful, loving and wonderous God. It wasn't until his state of immense brokenness that the author truly came to understand the good-news of Jesus Christ and God's desire to shape his journey of emotional wounds into an adventure of joy and wonder. Through his personal story of life, love, and loss, the author shares his testimony of discovering God in every season and situation, as Jesus transformed his journey into one of miraculous hope. The experience he wouldn't wish on his worst enemy but would pray happen to his best friends, had become a magnificent blunder. A journey from a shattered past and a broken heart into the transcendent presence and communion with the most awe-inspiring and wonderous person of the universe.
Through this profound testimony of restoration and overcoming, Leep invites you into an intimate relationship with your heavenly Father, who wants to transform your most painful moments into opportunities for awe and wonder.
