Cancer May Have Taken Her Life, But Not Her Legacy
This is a story about the biggest things in life, which is ironic because it ends with a death.
When Amy Nappa was unexpectedly diagnosed with Stage IV-B uterine cancer, her life and that of her husband's, Mike, changed forever. But they weren't the only ones whose lives were touched by Amy's courageous journey into the waiting arms of her loving Savior.
What started out as a private Facebook group intended to keep family and close friends apprised of Amy's medical condition grew to include hundreds, with thousands more reading publicly about Amy daily on social media. And now, Mike wants to share those poignant posts with you, so you can come to know the amazing woman he adored for 30 years (and still does).
So, this is Amy's story, mostly in her own words. It's a love story, a loss story, but most of all it's a life story. You'll quickly discover that Amy's life, especially the way she lived the end of it, will inspire your own.

Jesus was not in a hurry.
He had only three years of public ministry—three years to heal and teach and change the world—but the Bible never tells us he was rushing through them.
We are the ones who rush through them. Catching the gist of this parable. Smiling at the punch line in that dialogue. We can race through the Gospels in hours, fully briefed on Christ’s life, but hardly changed.
Until we sit down with Mike Nappa’s God in Slow Motion. Nappa hasn’t carved up the Gospels for quick review or sliced them into tiny pieces for academic study. He has taken ten important moments from the life of Christ and reveled in them, chewing on their words, relating them to life, comparing them with modern culture, allowing the Spirit to work, and letting Christ change him.
The result is a rich, personal, and biblical narrative about Jesus and how His purposes unfold, then and now. See how God is sneaky about his glory. How he presents evidence for belief. How he can be comforting and terrifying at once. This is the “good news” in all its many-splendored wonder: the life of Christ, frame by frame.
And it is worth every minute because it will change you too.
"Dear God, give me five flavors of ice cream for breakfast." "Dear God, make it my birthday every day!"
