Cartwheels in the Rain

The More YOU Know, The Better WE Grow!

On February 14, 2008, while Joe and Laurel Dubowski were exchanging Valentine 's gifts, a tragedy was unfolding on the campus of Northern Illinois University. A gunman had targeted students in a classroom, and their daughter, Gayle, was one of six who died that day.

In this brave and hopeful book, Joe takes us along on a journey he would never have chosen to travel. He recounts the details as they moved toward an understanding that was unthinkable and gut-wrenching. With great candor he gives us a glimpse into his thoughts and responses and approaches to healing over a two-year period.

Introducing us to twenty-year-old Gayle, he celebrates her life and her faith. Gayle loved the rain. In fact, she loved it so much she would run outside and do cartwheels in the downpour. Thus we come to see Gayle 's approach to life, and her exuberance calls us higher.

A Book for all who have experienced loss and for all who comfort them, Cartwheels in the Rain is more than a recounting of the all-too-familiar happening of a school shooting. It is an affirmation that whatever we are called to face in this life, God is always there to hold us, to carry us, to see us through.
