Never Give Up!

Price: $6.95

What do you do when your dreams, your plans and your hopes blow up in your face? Who do you blame when everything in the Bible gave you hope but, then, all was destroyed? How do you refrain from being angry, bitter and blaming God in situations like this? If we are honest with ourselves all of us at one time or another, have felt like ‘giving up.’ Paul expresses it perfectly in 2 Corinthians 1:8 when he says that he “despaired of life itself.”

Have you ever felt like this? Have you ever wondered if somehow you missed God?

Never Give Up addresses these questions and gives us the answers plus the practical application to rectifying the situation.

Most of us talk very openly about the need to “be like Christ” and to have His characteristics of Love, joy, peace, but what about thefruit of longsuffering—the determination never to give up? God promises us that He will strengthen us; help us and uphold us, even through the difficult times.

(Isaiah 41:10) “Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.”

The question is: How do we do our part? How do we, like Paul, patiently endure our trials by never giving up? That’s what this book is all about.

    Dear- Precious Nancy and Chuck,

    I was crying out to the LORD… again, ..this is has been a long , deep, dark trial. The times when HIS voice is so faint.

    Almost silent. With No Answers.

    I turn on every Christian radio station (Spanish and English) .. spend hours in the Word-

    listen carefully, -ask seek knock but no answers. ..

    .. the long dark night.

    Coupled with the gravity of my own sin .. which has been a shock to me

    I never thought I could be so wicked but I am.

    After 20 years of serious trials .. I see, .. just how sinful I am before OUR HOLY GOD

    I almost committed adultery .. after being rejected the second time by my beloved husband

    I was that vulnerable- devastated, and wide open to temptation.

    I do not blame my husband(s).

    The fault is with me .. “every man is tempted when he is drawn away by his OWN Lust …”

    .. I DO see how someone who is so devastated can fall.



    It has given me such a heart of mercy for those who have fallen into adultery ,,and are broken by their sin

    I have been a Christian for 32 years

    I am 52 years old now.

    After two failed marriages, (both husbands committed adultery)

    the suicide of my beloved father , the death of my child, loss of my career, loss of my home,.. no job

    coupled with 12 years of ridicule “how come you don t get a job?”

    ..and all I wanted to do is work! ..

    absolutely no family, rejection from the church many times as well

    and the icing on the cake was the LORD took my sweet little dog

    in a tragic way,, my dog was all I had

    sad but my little sweet dog was my greatest human comfort

    I am not bitter .. I just said “LORD you can take whatever you want .. I will try to just be

    thankful for the precious time I had with my sweet puppy”





    AND many times not knowing where it is HE wants me

    or what is happening

    ..and the enemy is always near

    .. the demons are working in those who worship idols

    many Christians are given over to idolatry.. I can sense the demonic prescense !!!

    The LORD in his mercy gives me discernment to deal with them

    please pray for me as i feel very weak

    the battle is always here

    I love you both

    and I thank the LORD for your faithfulness to HIM

    P.S. I sat under your teaching when I was a baby Christian in Big Bear Calif.

    you and Chuck made such a huge impact on me

    never,, ever could I settle for lame .. unbiblical teaching after you guys !!!

    thanks to you both

    I especially want to thank you Nancy for all your books on marriage

    I believe the LORD taught me (thru your hard fought trials) how to love my husbands unconditionally

    and even though they both never repented .. I know the LORD was working in Me to unconditionally love

    them .. sometimes with tough love and many times with unconditonal mercy and grace

    thank you Nancy

    I would love to meet you in heaven .. just to give you a hug

    you really have no idea how much you impacted my life!

    I love you very much
