    It Is Well - Life in the Storm

    • Description: Chris Faddis joined Teresa on her show back on February 7. He and his wife Angela Faddis were devout Catholics with two young children, who trusted in the Lord and His plan for their family. But the married couple's faith would receive an immense test on Easter Sunday 2011, when Angela was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. Angela died 17 months later, on Sept. 21, 2012, holding the hand of her heartbroken husband. One year later, Chris Faddis chronicles the inspirational journey he shared with his wife. "As you read this book you'll encounter the often harsh reality of the Christian journey," writes Catholic speaker and author Mark Hart in the foreword. Chris is coming to Michigan for several talks and he is back to tell us all about it.
