In the fall of 1997 at a Bible college in Grantville, Pennsylvania, Dawn first set eyes on Jacob Cole. She didn t know it then, but God had a special plan in mind for the two of them. In When Thunder Rolls, Dawn tells their love story from their early friendship to the day Jacob died.
A story of relationships and loss, When Thunder Rolls narrates Dawn s journey through a heartbreaking trial in her life that drew her into a deeper walk with Christ. They were married in 2001 and were happy for several years. But the young couple s life changed in 2008 when Jacob was diagnosed with malignant melanoma and died just a year later. This memoir tells how that experience forever changed Dawn, who became a young widow and single mother to four children.
Through her personal testimony, Dawn encourages others facing deep trials to know they are not alone and that with God s strength within them they will come through. And as they yield their hearts to Him and trust Him no matter what, God will be glorified.
