A Must-Read. Incredible story!

“An amazing and genuine testimony to the power and love of God to restore in the face of horrific suffering. Pete’s story is so stunning that it comes through. The wrenching, tender vulnerability of both Pete and his wife, Judy, is incredibly touching. Their profound story of healing and restoration displays God’s glory and gentleness in the face of suffering. Once you read it, you will come away amazed at God’s attention to detail and His infinite kindness to turn tragedy into wholeness, loss into love, and humanity into vessels that display His love and His desire to restore all of us. Sometimes we must reserve judgment of our circumstances until the long story comes through. Pete’s story is a perfect illustration of that, and a must-read.”


What An Ordeal! What A Testimony!

“‘Through the Fire’ is a great read! I was really inspired by the faith and devotion Pete displayed as he went through his ordeal. Once you pick up the book, you can’t put it down. You’ll laugh, cry, gasp and cheer as the author takes you through his struggles and victories of his trial by fire. Pete’s story is not about how he went through the fire. It is a testimony of how God, if you put your trust in Him, can bring you through your fires.”


God inspired

“Awesome writing, how beautiful that what the enemy meant for destruction, God is using in such a powerful way. Pete’s dedication to Christ encourages me to want to do more for HIM as well. Thank you Pete for writing your story.”
