About the Book
Angie Maddox knows that no one’s life is perfect, including her own. It is with that kind of peaceful acceptance that she has learned to trust in God’s plan for her and put Him first in every area of her life.

In her memoir, Maddox shares not only the story of her life, but also her journey of faith as she learned to lean on God through difficult times and strengthened her faith at the same time. As she chronicles her journey into adulthood, Maddox recalls how she met her husband, Donnie; attempted to start a family; and then faced unexpected challenges as she and Donnie battled infertility issues. Yet with every obstacle she encountered, Maddox shares how she relied on God’s guidance as her life path changed direction, eventually leading the couple to two baby blessings: one by birth and one by international adoption. As Maddox learned to care for two babies with special needs, she offers a heartwarming glimpse into her love of family, her love of the Lord, and how she opened her heart to the wonders of God’s grace.

Walk by Faith shares one woman’s poignant, faith-filled journey through life as she bravely faced hurdles and challenges with God’s help.
