This book was outlined in 2009, the summer before our son,
Aaron, died. As we celebrated his 38th birthday on August
29, 2009, we had no idea that it would be his last with us.
In spite of having cerebral palsy and being in a wheelchair, he had hiked, skied and fished
in the mountains of Colorado, Wyoming, Washington and Alaska. The title of this book,
“Under The Shadow of The Almighty,” comes from a number of Scriptural references to
God’s watch-care over us. God is watching over us. His superintending hand is directing
the events of our lives. Our prayer is that the story of our family may prove useful to
others in similar circumstances. Our desire is for it to be an encouragement and a comfort.
We have not white-washed our own struggles and challenges; they still remain a part of
our lives .
