About the Book 

In His Time is a tear-jerking story of a young woman who was the epitome of extraordinary courage, determination, and strength in the most trying situations. Her dream of becoming a medical doctor was shattered at age nineteen when Irish was given the life-changing diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus. She went from being a healthy child to living a roller coaster life as she fought this chronic and debilitating disease. Six years later, in 2005, she survived the greatest nightmare when she was hospitalized for six weeks at Loma Linda University Medical Center—her life in the balance.

How she survived the multisystem failure involving the kidney, lung, and heart is an incredible story to be told. Only the power of the Living God can do what we cannot in our helplessness. He is our only hope. He still performs miracles today and answers prayers just as He did in the past. Irish’s battle for survival teaches us that miracles still happen, that God is always there, and that He will hold our hands as we traverse the sometimes dark and hopeless road ahead. Yes, there is light at the end of the tunnel. God does make things beautiful IN HIS TIME.

Available in PAPERBACK and eBOOK formats.

  3. It moved me to tears... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jan 2022

    TEACH Services received the following review:
    "The story was truthful, very detailed and well written. It moved me to tears just reading it and realizing how sick she was and how persistent you all were on her behalf. I had chills reading about Reo's commitment to Irish, how they loved, respected and cared for each other.

    I remember reading about her discharge from the hospital, how frail and weak she was. However, she was determined to attend church, which she did the first Sabbath after her discharge, in a wheelchair and the progress she made week by week. I was inspired by her tenacity to know that all things are possible when we depend on God."
    ~ Hazel Rosemond, RN, Del Sol Medical Center
