About-

Grief is universal, permeating all avenues of life on planet earth; no one can escape it. Pain and sorrow come in all different shapes and sizes. An Ordinary Story of Extraordinary Hope accepts that life is hard. It explores the full scope of grief issues to proclaim that grace and hope are stronger than the hardness of life; grace and hope are saturated with redemptive power.
The book illustrates how those times of heartache result in growth that shapes our character and perspective. It teaches that it's our response to grief that determines whether growth will be positive or negative.
An Ordinary Story of Extraordinary Hope provides true-life narrative tied to Scripture to describe God's presence in the midst of painful circumstances. It demonstrates that over time God uses both positive and negative experiences to accomplish his purposes in our lives. Its testimony to perseverance is an encouragement to others on their faith journey.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Ken Abell knows the power of story. In this gripping story of grief, heartache, and growth, he outlines the seasons of his life. As Ken explores the depths of grief, he also speaks of how heartache brings growth. The personal nature of his story sets this book apart and will help readers connect with their own times of grief and loss."
--Amy Gingerich
Editorial Director
Herald Press

"An absorbing account of profound emotion as death stalks the author and the truth bores into our souls that 'all of life is preparation.' Each scene draws us forward as we see how God uses the stuff of life--disconnected fragments and inconceivable accidents--to form a grand scheme. Truly only faith in God and in the extravagance of grace brings meaning to life on earth. This is a very satisfying glimpse of God's work in another's life."
--Grace Holland
Retired missionary and Professor of Missions
