How can one hold onto to their faith in the midst of the most trying circumstances? Jeremy Camp shares his powerful testimony in IStill Believe, a book that will challenge every reader to strengthen the foundation of their faith.
Jeremy Camp, award winning Christian music artist, came from humble beginnings. His parents turned to Christ after struggling with substance abuse in their young adult years. Jeremy was brought up in a loving, Christian home, but they were very poor. Yet, he never felt in need. After his own conversion experience as a late teen during summer camp, Jeremy dove deep into the word of God and never looked back. After high school, Camp moved to California to go to college and while in California, he met Melissa. She was a passionate Christian young woman who swept Jeremy off his feet. Melissa was diagnosed with cancer after they met, but after treatment, it appeared as though she was in remission. Jeremy and Melissa were married, but after 3 ½ months of marriage, Melissa died. It was after her death and struggling through emotions that come with grief that Jeremy wrote the song “I Still Believe.”Jeremy goes on in the book to continue to share God’s faithfulness and love for him. He has since married for a second time, is the proud dad of three kids and continues to share his story through the music he writes.
I knew a bit about Jeremy Camp’s story before reading the book, but I didn’t know all of the details. I now have an even greater appreciation for the song “I Still Believe” and I find a great amount of comfort and confidence in Jeremy’s story. God can take all circumstances and work them out for good and for the furthering of his kingdom.
