Someone said, "Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce." The Murphey family learned to bounce often. This is an old-fashioned book, written in an old-fashioned way-with anecdotes, humor, and history.The tale is true. It is the story of a girl who graduated with a major in animal production at Colorado State University; who met her future husband at the Arizona National Livestock Show; who knew what it was like to lose the farm; but who managed to rear a family in the nurture of the Lord.The Lord led them off the farm to Coldwater; Mike into the office of district magistrate judge, and a year later, Joyce to the staff of The Western Star newspaper as their youngest child left for college. Mike often said folks could see Joyce's heel tracks in the road to town. This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord. (Psalms 102:18 KJV) It is a family history, written with humor, but also written with solid faith that the Lord would never leave them, even in difficult times. Laugh with them; cry with them; but most importantly, be encouraged by their story.
