On February 19, 2010, Will Rimmel was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. As his parents entered the ICU that night, the first thing that the doctor said to them was that they would now be Will’s “lifeline” That statement couldn’t have been truer. From that point on, the Rimmel family knew they needed to do everything that they could to help and find a cure for Will and the other children and adults that are living with this dreadful disease. Their mission as a family is to educate and make others aware of the signs and symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes and the devastating effects that it can have on a body. What began as a simple “Spirit Night” at a local Chick-fil-A restaurant in Winchester, Virginia, has evolved into so much more. As of now, the Rimmel family and the wonderful owners of the local Chick-fil-A restaurants have organized two amazing events that occur annually to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The Rimmel family motto is “We Will Find a Cure” This book is another platform for which the Rimmel family hopes to educate and inform others of Type 1 Diabetes. This light-hearted story reinforces the fact that those dealing with this disease are, in fact, Super Heroes and encourages them to never give up in the fight to find a cure!

The Bible is our instruction manual for life. But when we don’t read it as often as we should, God finds other ways to teach us the lessons of the Bible through our everyday life experiences. Life experiences can be fun, exciting, even dangerous. They can be boring, depressing, or painful. Sometimes we see them coming, and sometimes they blindside us. Some are thrust upon us, while others are the result of our own actions. Still Learning explains how we can learn something from each life lesson—good and bad. Author Jay Foreman shares his experiences and the lessons he learned from them, putting them to the test. He questions whether they are biblically applicable to his life and teaches you to ask the same very important questions. Are your own life lessons reflecting the messages you have learned—and lived—from the Bible? After you’ve become familiar with the author’s life experiences, including embarrassing moments and the subsequent lessons learned, you’ll visit a story from the pages of the Bible where the same lesson was learned thousands of years ago. God is gracious and teaches us the lessons He wants us to learn. Still Learning helps us recognize and identify the lessons we can take from our own life experiences.
