Craig Hastings

Author Bio:

Born and raised in Muncie, IN, Craig is about as typical middle-America as they come. He was young when his parents divorced and his grandmother came to live with him, his mother, and two sisters. Seeing his grandmother’s faith in God on a regular basis led him to accept and know everything is okay, God’s in charge.

Craig served 20 years in the U.S. Air Force and followed this as a DoD contractor where he had multiple tours overseas and around the U.S. While there were events in his life that tested his faith in God, nothing compared to when his first son was born with major medical issues. As a twenty-one-year-old father with a young devastated wife, his faith had never been tested more. After enduring several surgeries, some considered experimental, his son passed away at six months and two weeks. But even in his short life, he had a huge impact on Craig and others.

Since then, God has blessed Craig with two more sons and has been a constant guidance in his life. Craig’s time in the military and as a contractor afterward included over 20 years overseas where he was part of local mission churches. On their last return to the states, God led he and his wife to Oklahoma where he teaches Bible studies and serves as a Deacon in a local church.

The memory of what God did to help him through his parent’s divorce, his son’s illness and death, and many other events in his life, has always led him to want to share what impact God had and has with him. That desire led to this book, and the story of someone who has suffered multiple tragedies and reaches the point of thinking they have reached the ending and have no life, only an existence. But then finds someone who also has suffered tragedies, yet moves forward, encouraged and strengthened by their faith in God. How their sharing this faith leads this person to envision a beginning rather than an ending.
Nowhere are we promised life without tragedies, set-backs, problems, or devastating events we have no control over, but God’s word does promise, ‘It’s okay, God’s in charge.’
