Read Allan and Bonnies' story about a journey they never thought they'd be on; one of life, death, mental illness and spiritual healing.
What makes The Beautiful Strokes of God so helpful and unique is that it’s written by a pastor who knows and believes that Bible. He personally experienced the hopelessness and despair that came after a disabling illness. He knows what it’s like to battle through all the misunderstandings that Christians have about mental illness. He felt the emotional pain of having his faith severely challenged by his illness and the tormenting thoughts that raged in his mind. Through his diligent pursuit of the truth, God showed him the path to victory which he will share with you in the pages of this life-changing book.
Allan Gallant’s heartbeat is to change the conversation about mental illness in the church. His goal is to give Christians a Biblically-based explanation of mental illness and how to successfully recover mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Then churches can become a place of healing, hope and recovery rather than condemnation, shame, and denial.

"Stigma toward mental health exists in the church because people think faith and mental health are mutually exclusive.
Faith and mental health are NOT mutually exclusive, they are independent from one another."
~ Dr. Danjuma Gibson
"I have been praying about a way to address mental health issues within our church context and I feel that meeting up with you [AGORA Network Ministries] was part of God's timing."
