CHAPMANVILLE, W.Va. – Have you been given a bad report from your doctor, or are you facing some other personal challenge at this time? Regarding such storms of life, Logan County native and author Dan George says we all fit in one of three categories: soon heading into a storm; in the midst of one; or just coming out of a tempest. Such is the lot for the human race, but our responses to such heartbreak and brokenness vary widely.
The former Nationwide Insurance agent in downtown Logan, Dan George, now a resident of Cypress, Texas, will be appearing at Aracoma Drug on Sat., Oct. 17th from 11:30 a.m – 1:30 p.m. to sign copies of his first book, “When the News is Bad: Facing life’s fiery trials and discovering His peace, His presence and His healing power.”
This inspirational volume shares the personal account of one man’s journey after a devastating diagnosis of colon cancer, and the Biblical wisdom he found to help him face and overcome his adversities.
“I received my bad news in November 2013,” Dan said. “I had a colonoscopy in outpatient surgery. When I awoke I saw my wife, Avonell, and doctor coming toward me, and Avonell was in tears, so I knew the news was not going to be good: colon cancer, with the cancer having metastasized onto my liver (stage 4).
“Thus, our long journey through this trial began,” he added. “My goal now is that the words of this little book will speak to others who’ve been given similar news—or are facing other types of great tempests or trials in life. Perhaps some or all of these experiences I’ve had will encourage others, and draw individuals closer to the Lord, the only source of lasting peace in such journeys.”
Dan George grew up in a coal camp at Holden, WV. He is a graduate of Marshall University. After graduating, he enlisted in the US Air Force where he served for four years. Upon discharge, he returned home and began a career in the insurance industry; he was later stationed at several locations across the country with Nationwide Insurance. He accepted a calling as fulltime pastor at Six Mile Baptist Church in 2003, located in Hemphill, Texas. In 2012 he and his wife, Avonell, relocated to Cypress.
The public is invited to attend this special meet and greet and book-signing event in downtown Chapmanville. For additional information about his appearance at Aracoma Drug, 3602 N Main Street, call 304-855-4541.
