He Will Hold Me Fast
A Journey with Grace through Cancer
Taken from the blog posts of Connie Dever
Relying on God in the midst of cancer
'Then came cancer - I was terrified.'
Life was about to get very difficult for Connie Dever. Her soul echoed her body's turbulence. Everything felt so desperately out of control. 'Fears seized me and sometimes evil felt palpably close. At times I couldn't even open my Bible - only hold it. I was at the end of myself. "God, hold on to me! I can't do anything"'
And hold on to her, He did.
Connie Dever is the wife of Mark Dever, Senior Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington D.C.. She has a heart for children's ministry which is rich in substantive, biblical truth. It was out of this heart that, in 1997, The Praise Factory curriculum was created. Connie and Mark have two adult children.

Reading Connie's spiritual diary-like posts through this relentless journey helped me personally and pastorally. They helped me process some of my own struggles and they helped me understand those I serve, especially in their often-hidden battles of the heart.

The blogposts of Connie Dever are the stuff of a spiritual classic ... her sparkling honesty testifies, through the tears, that "He will hold me fast."

The beauty of Connie's book is that it's her journal-her raw emotions, fears, and hopes-in the midst of her suffering. And, therefore, it's a companion for anyone who is suffering because it remembers the dark times-and the hope we can have in them.
Bethany L. Jenkins, Director of Every Square Inch, The Gospel Coalition and Director of Vocational & Career Development, The Kingís College, New York City, New York
Connie Dever's book He Will Hold Me Fast is honest, penetrating and deeply moving. I love the way she weaves Bible passages and quotations through her story.
