The Story Behind "Stay: Lessons My Dogs Taught Me about Life, Loss, and Grace"

Here is the story behind my new book Stay. When my wife was battling cancer God provided a four-legged friend to walk with us. That canine friend's name was Hannah and she was a postcard from God during a dark time.

Author/speaker Joni Eareckson Tada says this about Stay:Lessons My Dogs Taught Me about Life, Loss, and Grace.  "When you're in a fierce battle against breast cancer, be on the lookout for people – or pets – through whom God delivers his most heartwarming encouragement. My friend Joni Burchett was in the cancer-battle for her life, but God blessed her with His warm, personal touch through the pawprints of her Labrador retriever, Hannah. But this isn't any 'dog story.' This is a book filled with courage, yet tenderness; bravery, yet gentleness. I highly recommend Stay to anyone who is looking for a fresh and unusual touch from the Lord!" – Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

I am so humbled that Joni Eareckson Tada recommends my book.
