Treha Langsam is a mysterious young woman
working with the elderly at Desert Gardens.
She is quiet, does not smile, and shows no emotion,
yet she can touch someones life and bring them out of their dementia
back to a life of vibrant, if only temporary, clarity.
The people that see Treha bring an elderly person back to clarity
believe she has a beautiful gift.
Treha does not remember much from her past
and has no idea as to how she learned to use this precious gift.
A documentary team gathering stories from the elderly stumbles onto Treha's story
and the search for her past begins.
Treha and those who love her begin tackling difficult questions as they search for her past.
What is the story behind this mysterious yet remarkable young lady
and are the answers worth finding out?
When I first began reading Every Waking Moment
I had an extremely difficult time getting into the story
and thought maybe I would not make it to the last chapter.
But the further I progressed in the book
the more my attention was grabbed by Treha's story
until I was in love with this dear young lady.
Here you have a woman who struggles with certain issues in life
yet she continues to push through the difficulties to find the answers.
Treha is a real woman with real problems just like you and me
and she learns to cope and deal with each difficult step.
Chris Fabry writes a wonderful book about blessed hope and sweet redemption.
The first thing that stood out to me was the fact that Chris
wrote about salvation through Jesus Christ within the first 2 chapters.
That shows to me what is important to this author and I greatly appreciated this.
When I was almost to the middle of the book I was encouraged by what he wrote
in the 18th chapter:
"How did you learn so much about the Bible?"
"Only one way to learn and that's to open and read it.
Listen to others who know it better than you do.
And stay away from people who think they have God figured out
or who say they know the code.
You come to the Bible humbly and admit you don't know everything - that's the key."
The book may have been slow for me in the beginning, but it sure did have an incredible ending
and I would definitely recommend this book.
There are many lessons and good values to learn from Every Waking Moment.
