On a beautiful Saturday morning in May 2007, Mark Moore suffered two strokes and was put into a medically-induced coma for a month. A STROKE OF FAITH tells the story of Mark’s remarkable recovery from this devastating condition and depicts how Mark moved from acceptance to surrender, from hope to faith, in the wake of tragedy.

But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

~ 1 Corinthians 15:10

"Learning that God had control all along"

Mark Moore always believed he was in charge of his life, and he had been doing a pretty good job of it: a successful businessman, loving husband and father, dedicated amateur athlete, and active with his local church. He thought he was in control Monday through Saturday, and God was in control on Sundays. All that changed on a beautiful Saturday morning in May 2007. Suddenly he was no longer in control of anything Read More

Mark on the Move

  • May 12, 2022

    As my alarm clock went off at 5am this morning, I reached across my bed and with my left arm turned it off. I then, begrudgingly, sat up in my bed and reluctantly moved my legs onto the bedroom floor. I proceeded to walk in the bathroom, brush my teeth, shave my face, and jump […]

  • On the Way to Mother’s Day

    To be honest, I will never approach Mother’s Day again without remembering what happened to me that day in May of 2007 as my son and I searched for Mother’s Day cards in the Hallmark store.  It seemed like just another day until my head started pounding and my knees grew weak.  I went outside, […]

  • You! Why Not You?

    Sometimes we imagine that things that happen to other people, can’t really happen to us.  We think we’ve outsmarted life in some way. We’ve found the secret to side-stepping chronic illness, or protecting our marriage from any notion of divorce, or making sure our kids are successful. We think all of that, until the day […]

  • It’s Springtime for a Grateful Heart

    I can never come to the Easter season without remembering all that God has done for me.  Every day, I give thanks to my Lord and Savior that He chose to restore me to good health and to give me a more focused life direction.  As we recognize and honor the death and resurrection of […]

  • The Hope of Resurrection

    As we move into the beauty of springtime and the joy of our Easter celebration, I can’t help thinking about what it means to any of us that Jesus was born, died, came back to life and then went back to heaven all for our sakes.  It’s such an amazing story of God’s love for […]

  • In Praise of Second Chances

    We probably all have times when we like the idea of getting a “do over,” or a second chance to make life better.  Unfortunately, it often takes a crisis for us to realize the blessings we had in the first place.  The good news is God loves to give us second chances, and even third […]

  • No Ordinary People

    When critical events bring change into our lives, they do so in every arena.  If you have strokes or other major health issues, that event effects your body in every way.  The thing I learned was that my body had to work hard to recover and I had to be willing to work on it […]

  • The “Fix-it” Guy

    As we grow from childhood to be mature adults, we adopt modes of behavior that others come to expect from us.  We may be the answer man or the listening friend or the problem solver, or something else.  I was the “Fix-it “guy.  I was the one my family and friends depended on to clear […]

  • The Truth about Quitting

    You’ve been trying hard.  You’ve been doing everything the doctors and the therapists have told you to do.  You still can’t dress yourself or do the simple things without help.  You wonder if all this effort is even worth it.  After all, this is hard and you didn’t sign up for life to be hard.  […]
