BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – “No More Bad Days” is now for sale! The book written by Gary Miracle with Robert Noland hit the bookshelves today, October 10, 2023, and what an exciting day it was! My broadcasting partner, Orville Susong, and I were invited by Gary to Barnes & Noble in Melbourne for the unveiling of his new book.
We arrived about 10:30 a.m. and followed Gary and his family as they made their way down the aisle, around the corner, and to the religion section, which holds “No More Bad Days” on the shelf. It was emotional and thrilling at the same time!
In December 2019 Gary entered the hospital and when he was finally released in late April 2020, he had lost all four limbs. The book follows his life’s journey, focusing primarily on days in the hospital and his time since being released.
As Gary put it, “This book is dedicated to everyone that has a bad day.”
Gary told us, “My prayer and my life since this happened to me was that somehow and someway, my story wouldn’t go in vain, that I can share my story and that it can encourage someone to know Christ for the first time or the 100th time.
He went on to say, “To see this lets me know that there is a portion that might not go in vain after all of this, and that somebody can get this book and hopefully through my story just be encouraged and fight a little harder.”
He continued, “It’s a crazy world out there, there’s a lot of horrible situations, but if Christ is inside of us, then it’s not going to be a fair fight because we know who wins in the end, and it’s Him.
“No More Bad Days” can be purchased on Amazon and is on the bookshelf at multiple bookstores around the country.
