If you knew you had only a few years to live, how would you use that time? Would you allow despair to overwhelm you or would you find a way to still have a life? How could you keep the fear of death from ruining the days you had left? Many people have considered these questions in theory, but when Dave Chilcoat was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, a fatal illness for which there is no treatment and no cure, he had to face them in reality. The day he received his diagnosis Dave began writing a journal. Soon, to keep family and friends updated on his condition, he posted his journal online. He wrote weekly for nearly three years and his chronicle was read by tens of thousands around the world. This book is the heart of that journal, the living account of a man of faith. Through Dave's own words, we see an ordinary man who faced death with a unique brand of humor, an unshakable faith in God's goodness and grace, and a heart open to God's purposes.
