About This Book

"After Ken was diagnosed with a terminal illness, I knew that our life as we had planned it was over. But then God turned our crisis into a grand experience, and He can do the same thing for you."

On April 14, 2009, Joyce Wilson's husband passed away from ALS. In this book, you will discover how God prepared them for the experience and gave them insights on suffering that changed their outlook on life...and death. Since Ken's death, Joyce has learned that these principles on dealing with crisis do not apply only to illness and death. They also apply to every unexpected, unpleasant circumstance we encounter. From the loss of a job to a divorce to a car accident, you can learn the secret of finding true freedom from fear and grief!

About the Author

Joyce Wilson's personal passion was to support the teaching ministry of her husband Ken. For 37 years, he taught high school Bible classes and church Bible studies, with Joyce lovingly supporting him behind the scenes, both in his work and at home with their three children. A Physical Therapist by occupation, Joyce was uniquely qualified to continue providing care and support to Ken after he was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease in 2007.

During Ken's illness, God shared insights with the couple on suffering that transformed the way they looked at not only their personal experience, but the world. But it was all just words...until Ken passed away. Since his death, Joyce has discovered that what God shared with them is really true and transforms life into something entirely different. Now, Joyce has a new passion: to share what she and Ken learned with others. Through her book, From Great Disappointment to Great Expectations, and her inspirational speaking engagements, she continues to spread the message that she is living every day: Yes, there is freedom from grief!
