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

  • 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 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.  […]

  • The Call to Love

    You may wonder what a guy who spent years as a CFO and CPA may know about love, but trust me, I learned some things in my stroke experience. God knows how to help you be a better partner and He can shine a light on your marriage. Since it’s Valentine’s week, I wanted to […]

  • Letting Go of the Old You

    One of the effects of having strokes or any health crisis is that you quickly realize that the “old” you is gone.  It’s a little strange to wake up, in my case, after several weeks in a coma, only to discover I was no longer the Mark I had been before.  At first, I grieved […]

  • The Blessings of Storms

    When you’re going through a storm, there is very little that feels good, much less anything that feels like a blessing.  When I first started getting a handle on what it meant to do the work of recovery after my strokes, I don’t think gratitude was my first thought.  Anger, uncertainty, and “why me?” were […]

  • A Perfect Storm

    A “perfect storm” happens when a rare combination of factors come together at precisely the right time to create an extraordinary event. When you think of perfect storms, you may imagine hurricanes and tornados, but for me, the perfect storm of my life happened when I had two strokes at the age of 46. The […]

  • When Nothing Is the Same

    When you’ve suffered a life-altering event, nothing feels the same.  At first, you desperately want things to get back to “normal.”  You want to feel good again and be able to do all the things you did before.  You want your body to respond when you raise your arm or move your foot.  You want […]

  • One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

    If you’ve been in the recovery process for a while, you may find yourself feeling like you always have to take a step back before you can move forward. That process can feel very slow and you may wonder if it’s worth the effort. Every morning when you rise, you have choices to make. You […]

  • When There’s Too Much Noise

    If you live almost anywhere in suburbia, you can feel like you never have a quiet moment.  Either you’re assaulted with the literal noises of the outside world, or you’re overwhelmed by the noises of fear and doubt and worry and uncertainty that spin around in your head.  Wherever you are, there is simply too […]
