Another Second Chance... God's Story By Troy Lewis

How a stranger's kidney saved my life ...And my brothers too!

Troy played Jesus Christ in a local passion drama for 9 years. He successfully coached girls fastpitch softball for 7 years. He and his wife had two beautiful girls.

But in January of 2010, after being blindsided with the news of kidney failure, the man from Ohio came to the realization that life as he knew it was over... He began a race against time, struggling at every turn, taking detours that didn't make sense, and facing roadblocks that tested his faith. When things looked absolutely hopeless, Hope showed up in a miraculous way!

Troy thought it was a brother's love that would save him, but it was a Father's love that saved them both. A thousand miles away a stranger felt a call to courageously give with nothing expected in return, not knowing that he had the rarest of kidneys.

Troy couldn't have imagined what God had in store for all who were part of this story. Hollywood couldn't have scripted it. He humbly encourages everyone reading this book to believe that, no matter what we are facing in life, we can experience the revelation of what God has in store for our lives.

This book will speak to anyone facing challenges larger than themselves, whether it's job loss, financial ruin, family pain, or your own battle with illness. Miracles still happen and there is always "Another Second Chance".

Let me start this review off by saying most of you know me personally and know that I have been very sick with my kidneys for years. This book could not have come at a better time for me. The Lord knew that I needed to read this now.
My best friend found Troy on line and she said you have to read this book it is just what you need right now. Well with out further a do, she sent a message to Troy asking him to send me a copy to read and review. And he gladly mailed a copy right out to me.
The day I got Troy's book in the mail I also got 5 more books to review so I set out reading them and never thought about Troys book until I went to the book shelf picked it up  the next in line to be reviewed  and it was Another Second Chance and I started reading it. I was in awe of this awe inspiring book. It touched me so deep. This book is such an inspiration to me that I will read it over and over again.
I cried so many times  reading this book, happy tears, tears of joy. I feel like Troy AKA Jesus ( you will get this after you read the book) was meant to be a part of my life even if just through his book.
I want all of you who love me and are a part of my life to read this book as soon as you can. You will get to look into my world a little by reading this book. If you read no other book this year PLEASE READ THIS ONE.
I am crying so hard as I  am sitting here  typing to  you all. Most of you know I don't like  long reviews but I felt those of you who loved me would really like to know how I felt about this book.
I am sure that you will see God on every page just as I did!
You will even get to meet Jay who by the way is Troy's angel.
 I highly recommend this book. I give this book 5 stars two times it is such a great book.
I was given a copy of this book by the author. THANK YOU TROY! 
Who knows maybe I will get my Second Chance

  9. Mary what a great review, I need to win this book because I may need a transplant myself someday. The Cleveland Clinic is were I go and they did the first sm gut transplant last yr. my drs already asked if I wanted a transplant, I turned it down because I've been living with a bag for 7yesrs now. I go threw slit but their has to be someone out there that needs it Mir than me. Yes I take IV fluids everyday for8-12hrs, I run to the bathroom 8-15 times asay, I don't go anywhere except Dr, hospital, occasionally. Food makes me sick, pill don't digest, but I have my book, and making pins to pass the time. I would love to win this one, for certain and for sure. God bless you , Troy.

  10. Dearest Mary ~ It's hard to put into words just how I feel about you, your condition, and the miracle that brought Troy's book your way. I know that you can receive this miracle of second chances too. By all means get yourself on the transplant list. In the meantime, I'm praying for you every day that God will work a miracle in your life just as He did in Troy's. If you need anything at all, even one of my kidneys, just say the word. Thanks for a heartwrenching review for this wonderful testimony!

  11. Mary, I am so sorry. I did not know about your condition, only that you were ill at times, but not the cause. I pray GOD will bring you a miracle of your own. You are such a sweet, caring person. Will keep you on my prayer list at all times. So glad you received this book. I can hear that it really touched you. In a way, God speaking to you through Troy! God Bless, Maxie
    I would loce to win the book. Maxie mac262(at)me(dot)com

  12. I would love to read this book if only to understand what you have been going through better. I know how much you have suffered all these years with your kidneys but knowing about it an reading what's it's like in a book by someone who has gone through the same thing and come out the other side healed with be amazing. I glad this book encouraged you and gave you hope and if ever you want to go through the surgery yourself, I will have myself tested to see if I'm a match.

  13. As someone who struggles with a chronic health issue I always read others story to see if I can learn something from their experiences. I haven't worked in 10.5 months, so buying this book is not an option right now. Prayers are with you.

    1. ALL of my reviews are giveaways! E-mail me your name and mailing address.

  14. Mary, This is such a touching story. I cried along with you.
    I'm going to make sure I get this book.
    You are so Special and God can and will work in your life like he did for Troy.
    Praying for You daily.
    May God Richly Bless You.
