The book encourages its readers to live beyond their chronic hopelessness and experience joyful living.
"When we thought about the things that we went through it was very easy , with Deanna's illness, with my illness, it was to turn inward," said Stanford. "We talked a lot about that. Deanna actually wrote the forward to a book that I wrote called "When God Disappears" and that was the start of the conversation and we began to think are there things that we can share with people about our respective journeys that will allow them to get out of those patterns and to live a life that is healthy, that they can experience the fullness of we believe life should be about."
