Robert (Bob) Ivy was orphaned as a child of nine and told himself he would never cry again—but God had other plans. Bob’s heart was softened through career changes, tough financial times, the loss of two wives, and two bouts with cancer. Yet, his relationship with God sustained him through these difficult times and uplifted and humbled him through the good ones.
I’m Never Gonna Cry Again, a non-fiction memoir that follows the life of Robert Ivy, includes narrative written by Barbara Ivy, Bob’s daughter-in-law, as well as journal entries written by Robert himself. It is their hope that through their collaboration, readers are encouraged to understand God’s love for them, His children, and trust His leadership in their lives.
