Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story’s life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Their lives would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible. But the devastating news was that no cure existed to restore Martin’s short-term memory, eyesight, and other complications. The fairy-tale life Laura had dreamed of was no longer possible. And yet in struggling with God about how to live with broken dreams, Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus.

Laura helps us understand we aren’t the only ones whose lives have taken unexpected turns. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith, and shows how despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways. And it was not because of their faith, but because of the faithfulness of their God. God may not fix everything. In fact, although your situation might not ever change or get better, with Jesus you can.

“Our family has been ministered to by her vulnerability and willingness to walk in the valley and still say ‘God, I Trust You.’”


Grammy Award-Winning Artist and New York Times Bestselling Author

“Laura is one of my heroes when it comes to trusting God. She’s joyful, genuine, and faithful even though her story includes messy chapters. ­This book will be on my nightstand for a long time!”

  • Blessing

    By FCJ7007
    That’s exactly what this book has been - a real blessing. It has confirmed for me what God is already doing in my life and has encouraged me in away that I haven’t been encouraged in a long time.

  • Walking the same path

    By cycling grl
    I too am walking the path along side my husband, when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor Feb 4, 2018. Relating to what Laura has, and is, going through has truly helped me see hope in our future. We serve an amazing God! He will lead us, and we will follow! Do we know the outcome, of course not, but God does. And that’s all that matters! Thank you for sharing your story.
  • All I can is WOW!

  • God's glory in our broken story

    By AKnutMeg
    A well written story, reflecting theology that can only come through living life broken open for Christ. Thank you, Laura, for being willing to be vulnerable and courageous, and encouraging the rest of us to let God use us in the midst of our broken mess of a story to show what a mighty, miraculous God we serve. I am becoming even more convicted that God wants me to share my own. Uh, oh!! Now I've admitted to hearing the Holy Spirit's call! Perhaps some day, you can review mine! :D
  • A beautiful mess.

    By Ritzy ChiCity
    I love Laura's raw transparency in this book. She withholds nothing and I am so grateful for her and her husband's life. They are truly a gift to the body of Christ. This book will make you cry, will challenge you, will make you question your theology and what you truly believe about the goodness of God. If your life always feels like it's turned upside down, Laura's words and life experience will comfort you on your journey.
