A timeless love story.
A walk of faith.
An unforgettable journey.

Is it possible to find hope in the midst of tragedy? Or joy in the hardest times?

Introducing Char's Gift, a new book by Steve Harryman.

When Char Harryman suffered a series of grand mal seizures and was rushed to the hospital on Easter Sunday, her life, and her husband Steve's, would never be the same again.

With Char's diagnosis of a malignant brain tumor requiring life-saving surgery, that tragic event in their lives would mark the beginning of a remarkable journey of faith and perseverance spanning nearly twenty-five years.

Char's Gift is ultimately a story of triumph over the storms of life and a testament to the depth of God's strength, faithfulness, and unfailing love.

“With all her struggles, with all her many battles against cancer, with all her perseverance and hope in Christ—Char was one of the most inspiring women I’ve ever met.”

Joni Eareckson Tada


"What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the Master calls a butterfly."
