"Mae Jean! We hit the mother lode!" Denny exclaimed as they harvested the beefsteak mushrooms in the woods near their home. They eagerly ate the delicacies but soon became violently ill. At their small-town hospital, they were given massive doses of Vitamin B-6 as a remedy, but it resulted in severe nerve damage. After spending months in a rehabilitation center, they were sent home still in need of 24-hour care. Both had permanently lost their sense of touch which affected every aspect of life . . . balance, eating, physical intimacy, functioning in the dark . . . simple things most people take for granted. With a preschool son to raise and huge medical expenses, the pressures they faced overwhelmed them. Their lives spiraled out of control, causing them to cry out to the Lord for answers-first, to cope with their physical losses and financial needs, and later, to resolve the spiritual and marital struggles their handicaps created. Then, just as their marriage was beginning to heal, Denny was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Though tossed about by one "storm" after another, God continually demonstrated his faithfulness to this family even when they were misled, confused, and exhausted. Twenty years after it all began, Mae Jean shares her personal journey of suffering, discovery, growth, and renewal in Out of the Tempest. It is sure to inspire and challenge you.
