One year after her cancer diagnosis, Cherrie decided to start a blog to encourage others like herself to stay strong through seeking and finding Jesus. This book is a collection of 50 posts that were put together as a Christ-centered devotional. The reader is encouraged to look up the accompanying Scriptural references to gain further insight. "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)
Cherrie was a mother, wife, artist, teacher, writer, cancer fighter, and most importantly a born again believer in Jesus Christ. Over the 20 plus years she walked with Jesus this side of Heaven, the Lord allowed Cherrie to serve Him in a variety of capacities. Although she was always the first to say she drew especially close to the Lord in the midst of going through cancer. "Even though it's been a difficult road," she would remark. "I wouldn't trade having cancer for anything." Cherrie saw the Lord and people with such a godly perspective. Her desire to be ministered to by the Word of God and then minister to the lost and those suffering in the body of Christ grew even even more so throughout her last few years. I pray that each page shines with the comfort, joy, peace, grace, and truth of the Lord Jesus Christ, encouraging each and every reader to draw closer to the Good Shepherd. No matter whether you're on the mountain or in the valley, the Lord has promised to never leave or forsake us. What an amazing and comforting God we serve! (Bio written by Flynn Huseby, Cherrie's husband of 18 years.)
Cherrie and her love for writing led into making a devotional blog for any who struggled with their situation. I personally read along, not having cancer, but a love for Christ, and that is exactly what I read as I went along on the devotional ride. Cherrie, being led by the Holy Spirit, brought conviction into my life that I had never seen before. I am so thankful for her love to speak the truth.
