200 Tuesdays : What A Pearl Harbor Survivor Taught Me About Life, Love, And$15.99Add to cart
This is the story of how casual Tuesday meetings about friendship, leadership, mentoring, parenting, and marriage–and the sacred thread through it all–led to an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.
When Dianne Derby arrived as a news anchor in Colorado Springs, she was hungry for approval, affirmation, and connections. She raced from one event to the next, capturing stories and sound bites. Everything changed when she met centenarian Jim Downing at a luncheon for World War II veterans. At the time, Jim was the second-oldest living survivor of Pearl Harbor. Jim asked Dianne an important question: “Would you like to meet the most fulfilled person you’ll ever know? You’re looking at him.”
Dianne and Jim began meeting on Tuesdays, where eventually she invited her followers into their dialogues with dozens of videos on Facebook Live, where viewers could learn from Jim just as she had. With thousands of views, the chats struck a chord with people who were hungry for a meaningful life. Over the course of five years, Jim Downing taught Dianne Derby to slow down; to embrace only what is true, real, and good; and to live a life of significance. She delivered the eulogy at his funeral, a memorial service that was broadcast for the world. His lessons live on in her stories, her friendships, and the significance of her work as a journalist, a mother, a wife, and a follower of Christ.

The words build anticipation for what’s coming . . . which is great for a Netflix binge, but not a healthy pattern for our lives. In real life, constant continuation causes our lives to pile up, episode upon episode, with no space for reflection or rest, contentment or closure.
This book is for the too-busy, driven person who’s moving on to the next win, without ever processing how one season of life affects the next. It’s for the person stuck and held back because she’s never done the hard work of getting real closure on a season. When we fail to finish well, we live with a pile of unfinished beginnings. But finished things become usable things because they are a part of the story of God’s grace and faithfulness.
In these pages, you’ll discover:
*How beginnings are important because they give birth to hope
*How we can hold on to hope when the journey is hard and the future is uncertain
*How to conclude moments, days, and seasons and find God’s grace to be enough
*How hope sustains us as we learn to live in this moment and discover the beauty of redemption
The pressure of our piled up past needs to be brought to an end. Instead of vague storylines that stretch “to be continued,” learn to start with the end in mind: To Be Concluded.
