A Cancer Survivor's Sketchbook Story

by Mark Fraley

A moving story for anyone who has been through cancer or anyone who knows someone who has been through cancer. As a young husband and father, artist Mark Fraley walked through a four-year battle with the disease. Even when pain and treatments stole his ability to work or focus for periods of time, he captured moments of his journey as images, thoughts, and prayers in the sketchbooks that were his constant companions. Creation of Calm brings together those illuminating moments, and the result is honest art, wrenching emotions, a little humor, and authentic spirituality. Mark's story shows that even in the midst of pain and uncertainty, one can find a place of peace and calm.

For people from over ninety countries the Shelter Hostel has provided a beacon of light and a welcoming home for thirty years, as the Pexes use their gifts of hospitality and evangelism. Enjoy these touching and humorous stories that reveal how the Lord uses ordinary people to participate in His extraordinary work.
