Cancer, Faith & Butterflies (How do you believe when your world falls apart) by Johnny M. Sanchez describes how when we are dealing with pain and loss, that is when we need God the most. Unfortunately, that is also the time when most of us question our faith. This is the story of Joe's life. Joe Connelly had spent the last six months in hospital taking care of his wife. The agonizing pain he witnessed Brooke and others like her enduring cemented his doubts in the existence of God. His dying wife, however, held onto her unwavering faith until her very last breath. Left with an infant daughter, Joe tried to be the best father for the little child he now had to raise on his own. However, God was not done testing him. Just when Joe thought he had finally got the hang of things, tragedy struck again, followed by the revelation of a heart-shattering secret that made him question the one thing he held most sacred. Joe will be pushed to his lowest point in life before he can truly see God's light.
