Leave A Well In The Valley

Dr. Elmer Towns, Co-founder of Liberty University and Dean, School of Religion, in Lynchburg, Virginia wrote, in his Foreword of the book Leave a Well in the Valley, “Dale Peterson has written an incredibly provocative book that will help all believers who are going through trials or difficulties.” 

Leave a Well in the Valley is a reminder that we all have unavoidable problems in life, we all walk through valleys.  The troubles, trials, and valleys of life can offer valuable benefits if we deliberately choose to face forward, looking to our futures with faith and hope rather than backward in despair. 

Inspired by a song, written by Gordon Jenson in 1971, Dale Peterson not only survived numerous tragedies and trials, but thrived through them, and now shares keen insights for others who would like to turn their tragedies into triumphs! 

Dale’s philosophical approach can become yours.  Perhaps you’re going through a time of testing, trial, temptation, or torment—and are even wondering if you can survive.  My friend, you can not only survive, but also thrive—if you will commit yourself, your survival, and your future to this simple goal: 

I will use this present valley as a time of personal growth;
I will not waste the pain or the problem,
But will grow through it, not merely go through it!
