Walking. Talking. Seeing. Playing sports. These are all things that the average person takes for granted, but for people living with ataxia, they can be filled with challenges. Matthew Westerfield has ataxia, but ataxia doesn’t have him.
In My Psalm 90, author Matthew Westerfield shares his story of growing up with spinal cerebellar ataxia type 7, a degenerative condition which affects speech, eyesight, balance, and coordination. Matthews’s faith brought him through hard times, such as an ATV accident which resulted in him being hospitalized. This powerful testimony shows the grace and protection of God, as the damage to his liver could have been much worse and life-threatening if a nearby vein had been cut. Originally misdiagnosed with achromatopsia, an eye disorder, Matthew’s condition affects many areas of his life, both physically and socially. Matthew has to learn how to overcome the difficulties he is faced with, along with the realization that his life may look different than he previously expected. Through these experiences, he learns that God has blessed him with the strength to persevere and has given him the opportunity to show His love to others.
Join Matthew on his journey as he experiences the highs and lows of adolescence, including friendship, first love, school trips, and sports. See how the Lord puts mentors in his life to help him along the way, and provides opportunities for him to share God’s faithfulness with those he meets. My Psalm 90 is a story about overcoming life’s hardships and seeing them as opportunities to thrive. Readers will be inspired to make the most of every day, no matter what situation they find themselves in.


Matthew Westerfield is a pastor and an aspiring personal trainer. This book shows how God used him to preach in different situations, and how he was able to impact the lives of others by being obedient to this call. Matthew is also the author of Why I Don’t Like Camping, My Unhappy Halloween, and T’was the Night of a Fright. Matthew hopes that his story will be helpful and inspiring to all those who read it.
