“Heather Magee has written an immensely readable, at times confronting, but always heart touching account of her journey through some really frightening life challenges as a woman, a wife and a mother. This book brings the realities of devastating human experience into the perspective of a loving and gracious God and applies sound Biblical truth to some of the great quandaries of life. After reading it, I doubt you will view the subject of human suffering in quite the same way again.”
Pastor Keith Ham (Baptist Pastor and Counselor)
“Shortly after the recent floods, I was driving across central Queensland. The road was badly damaged by the heavy deluges and we were forced to travel slowly. A flashing sign on the side of the road caught my attention and totally transformed the journey. It said, ‘Ignore your GPS! There is a better road ahead!’ Heather has chosen to ignore the natural GPS of looking at her circumstances and has fixed her eyes on Jesus for the better road He has marked out for her. This is the amazing story of Heather’s determination to persevere through her many trials and trust God in all things. Parts brought me to tears as I learned of her journey, and parts reaffirmed my trust in the God who created us and loves us perfectly. Heather, thanks for the privilege of reading your story!”
Joan Pennicook (Wife of Pastor John Pennicook)
About the Author
Heather Magee, Author, Wife, Mom, Speaker, Co-Pastor, and Counselor, who inspires and encourages women and men through her life of faith amid two diagnoses of cancer. During her 40 years in ministry with her husband Len, Heather has written, produced and ministered songs for worship, healing, and restoration in the Body of Christ. Through Heather's gift of music, lives have been touched and forever changed, for the glory of God. Heather was born in England and studied to become a teacher. It was during her final year at teachers training college that she met Len Magee, well-known as one of Britain's most loved gospel singers. As soon as her studies were over, they were married. Four years later she emigrated to Australia with her husband, where they have lived for 36 years. Heather's challenges have not only involved her experience with cancer. She had cared for her husband when he suffered a major stroke 16 years ago, and now she currently cares for her son who is severely ill with undiagnosable and untreatable types of multiple daily seizures. She has seen her husband miraculously restored but as yet has not seen her son healed. She is currently patiently enduring through sorrow that has few words! However, Heather's heart has reached far beyond her church and behind the closed doors of her home. Her journey has also taken her across the oceans to the Philippines to help care for desperately impoverished children, living on the rubbish dumps of Cebu; starting schools amongst the tombs, feeding the poor in the streets and providing fold-up beds to the homeless. Heather writes about suffering from her years of experience, both in the pastoral ministry and in her own life. Her faith in God communicates hope to the hopeless, light in the darkness, and joy in the midst of extreme sorrow. She takes the readers to the depths of human suffering with its sickness, trauma, pain, doubts, and fears, giving them hope through her journey of faith.
