The Trials and Triumphs of Missy Koch Billingsley

”OK, it took me 5:49 and 2 cups of coffee to read this straight through with the DVD this morning... and that includes the tears. What a beautiful love story in so many ways!”

”I cannot stop talking about this book. I watched the videos last night over and over...listening to the music and taking it all in. I wanted to pick up the next volume and start reading it. So, I think the saga must continue! I really don’t know what I’m going to do with myself now!”

”You are a terrific author! Hope this is the first of many, many books. It’s a real “page-turner” and I’m frustrated every time I have to put it down to get something done or run and errand.”

After teaching Todd as a high school student, I could not wait to read RUN TO WIN. I began reading immediately after getting it out of the mailbox. I literally could not stop reading except to weep again and again for Missy’s trials. This was followed by tears of joy as I read of their love and marriage. I was astounded at the depth of feeling Todd expressed as they tried to start a family. Could there be more? The answer is YES! How God blessed them with three beautiful children is thrilling. I couldn’t wait to pull out the DVD to see and hear evidence of their lives together. I finished looking at it at midnight just a few days after receiving the book. God surely has His hand on Missy and Todd.”

RUN TO WIN has been just a wonderful read! I always tell friends when they wonder how I deal with sorrow and loss that we all go through times of pain; no one in immune. Thank you for the book. So much fun (your courtship was a hoot!), encouragement, and a great testimony.”

Missy’s story was both heartbreaking and inspiring. How one person can be so focused and so strong in body, mind and spirit is beyond me, but she does it with grace and resolve the whole way. If you have ever struggled with anything in your life, you need to read RUN TO WIN. Her example of strength and character will push you through your struggle just like she pushed through hers.”

Just watched the DVD and was thrilled all over again! RUN TO WIN arrived as I was leaving town over the weekend, so took it and read it cover to cover...I couldn’t put it down! Seeing the DVD was a double blessing! I haven’t ever used this term before, but it’s a ‘must-read-and-see.’”
