Jeff and Sarah Walton have learned to make God's Word central to their daily lives. Sarah, who suffers with Lyme's disease, and Jeff tell how walking through the ups and downs of life has brought them to a place where they can honestly say, as Job did, "My ears had heard of you, but now my eyes have seen you." Together they share how God is using their trials to build up and comfort others in the body of Christ.

By the time Sarah was diagnosed with Lyme disease, she and Jeff's emotional, mental, and physical reserves were at their breaking point. Their oldest child was struggling with medical and behavioral issues, and Jeff's job often sent him far from home, leaving Sarah to juggle home care and child rearing all by herself. They also had financial issues, which were exacerbated when Jeff lost his job. Bottom line: they were holding on by a thread. Jeff and Sarah tell how the Bible became their lifeline and helped them see that there is purpose even in the trials.
