Item description for TRAILBLAZING WITH GOD by Jane Ann Derr...

Publishers Description
Trailblazing with God Learning to Walk on the Water "Trailblazing with God," boldly describes one family's fascinating adventure to Ghana, West Africa in the early nineteen sixties. Many unexpected twists and turns lead to perplexing and surprising discoveries as they endeavor to adjust to their new environment that early missionaries called, "the white man's graveyard." The lessons this young couple and their five children learned were priceless. God doesn't pick the cream of the crop to be His servants. He uses ordinary, willing people with all of their warts and flaws to show the wonderful grace and mercy of God who carves us into the image of Christ. Author, Jane Ann Derr shares her first-hand struggles and victories experienced when her evangelical preacher husband, Harold Derr, takes his family of five young children to Ghana, West Africa in the early nineteen sixties during the backdrop of political upheaval in America and Africa. Her passionately interwoven stories are filled with suspense, human failings and hope. Although she attended Guilford College in the late seventies to pursue an accounting career and worked over thirty years in many corporate leadership roles, writing has been a burning dream throughout her life. Since her husband's death in 2006, she has been pursuing her writing career fulltime. She has authored several books, won poetry contests, has written several songs, and has written for many national publications. She currently resides in the North Georgia Mountains and devotes her energy to local church activities and her five children, thirteen grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren in addition to writing.

Reviews - What do customers think about TRAILBLAZING WITH GOD?

Couldn't put it down  Aug 5, 2008
This book was an inspiration to me. I enjoyed reading about mission work and this family's challenges during their time in the mission field.
Excellent Book  Jul 22, 2008
What does it mean to step out on faith? We often talk about it but here is an opportunity to take a journey with Harold and Jane as they take their family from the comforts we all expect to an environment most of us would not want to endure. Their love for the Lord and others allowed them to make this journey and now this book allows us to travel along and see what it is really like to be a missionary. I enjoyed the book and I am sure you will also.
Loved this book!  Jul 6, 2008
This book is a wonderful read and it's so inspirational. It really made me step back and think about how I can become a better Christian.
Trailblazing With God, Jane Ann Derr  Jul 1, 2008
What an inspiring book. This family left the security of familiar surroundings and moved to Africa as missionaries, taking their five children with them. Nothing happened as expected. First the other family that was to join the work, left to return to America. The book is very honest with all the disappointments. Through it all they "stayed the course" and were sure of God's love and protection. What an inspiration to everyone who reads this story. As I read it, I felt that I was there. Jane Ann Derr will have more books that will be welcomed.

Wonderful Read  Jun 27, 2008
I picked up this book and couldn't put it down. Everyone interested in what missionaries go through to share the gospel should definitely read this book. I laughed, I cried, and I was challenged in my own faith by the Derr family's commitment and perserverance. Her honesty and vulnerability was amazing. I highly recommend this book. -- Dr. Steve Jackson, Pastor, NewSong Community Church, Cumming, GA
