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. It also reveals God's work in Mark's life as He transformed him from thinking he had everything under control to knowing God has had control all along. Read More

About Mark

Mark Moore is the author of the upcoming book, A Stroke of Faith: A Stroke Survivor's Story of a Second Chance at Living a Life of Significance. It will be published on April 25, 2017 by FaithWords, a division of Hachette Book Group. The book tells the story of Mark’s medical crisis in 2007 when he suffered back to back strokes and almost lost his life. It goes on to give witness to Mark’s spiritual transformation from believing he was in charge of his life to knowing that God had control all along. Remarkably, Mark was able to complete a 5K charity run just one year after his stroke, a testament to his faith in Jesus Christ and God’s ability to help Mark overcome the many obstacles that everyone experiences in recovering from a major stroke...

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

  • If You Have Eyes to See and Ears to Hear

    He told them, “You’ve been given insight into God’s kingdom—you know how it works. But to those who can’t see it yet, everything comes in stories, creating readiness, nudging them toward receptive insight. These are people— Whose eyes are open but don’t see a thing,Whose ears are open but don’t understand a word,Who avoid making […]

  • Some Assembly Required

    Did you ever buy something you wanted from the store, perhaps a toy for one of your grandchildren or a new bookcase, and then you read the words, “Some assembly required?”  I don’t know about you, but I can tell you I don’t like seeing those words stamped on the package.  I prefer things to […]

  • The New Normal

    Most of us like to define “normal” for ourselves.  For example, we might say that it’s normal for us to get four hours of sleep each night, or it’s normal to work twelve hours a day.  We set the pattern and that’s what seems “normal” to us.  When I suffered two strokes and had to […]

  • Our Perfect Imperfections

    Any kind of chronic condition, whether it’s related to your health, or longtime financial stress, or relationship stress, can make you question yourself. It can even make you question God, sometimes in anger.  After a stroke or some other health crisis, you might find yourself saying, “Why me? Why are you doing this to me, […]

  • Acceptance Brings Hope

    When you have a stroke, or any life-altering illness, everything changes.  Your physical body is not the same and nothing about your life feels “normal.”  You feel drained and you are ushered through a wide range of emotions that move from feeling uncertain to desperate. Eventually with the grace of God, you are able to […]

  • That’s Impossible

    Not long ago I was speaking with a stroke support group.  I shared my stories of the two strokes that put me into an induced coma for several weeks and then the work that was required when I woke up and had to start the recovery process. I mentioned that I was pleased that I […]

  • Surrender or Give Up! It’s a Big Difference!

    Some words are easy to define.  You relate to them from your personal experience.  When you talk about “love” for instance, you might define it differently than someone else, but love is a word that makes you feel good and when you use it people understand what you’re trying to say. Today, I want to […]

  • Making Hard Choices

    You have to make a lot of choices as you go through life.  When you were a kid, they seemed relatively easy or at least you were aware of the consequences of your choices.  You could choose to stay out after curfew, but you knew that would not go well with your dad.  You could […]

  • No Place to Hide

    You may remember the Bible story from Genesis about how Adam and Eve hid from God when they knew they had done wrong. They covered themselves in fig leaves to hide their nakedness.  They didn’t want God to see them. It was interesting to me after my stroke experience, to discover that I did not […]

  • What? Me Worry?

    We all worry, don’t we? When you’ve gone through a critical illness and you’re working to get better, worry comes right along with the rest of your progress.  On the good news side, if you can worry, it probably means you’re healing.  After all, you don’t have time to worry at the beginning of your […]
