I Still Believe by Jeremy Camp


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.

I received this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
