Availability: Ready to download

The despair that befalls a family when one of its own is forever changed by illness or tragedy is an experience we can only hope to escape. A serious accident, stroke, terminal illness, or more can cause stress and sorrow that are often unbearable. But we don’t get to choose from a menu of life lessons. We simply wake up one day to them sitting on our plate. The question t The despair that befalls a family when one of its own is forever changed by illness or tragedy is an experience we can only hope to escape. A serious accident, stroke, terminal illness, or more can cause stress and sorrow that are often unbearable. But we don’t get to choose from a menu of life lessons. We simply wake up one day to them sitting on our plate. The question then becomes: What do you do? Daybreak jogs, PTA meetings, church choir rehearsals, laughter, and family time—these were the basic ingredients of Robert and Theresa Lee’s life together. Then, at age forty-three, Theresa was diagnosed with ALS. With raw honesty and grace, Robert chronicles the inspiring story of his late wife’s twelve-year dance with the disease, his role as her caregiver, and the highs and lows ALS took their marriage through. A touching memoir filled with moments of lightheartedness, wisdom and simple humanity, readers will be uplifted by this brave couple’s tale of unconditional love and their ultimate message: “You are not alone.” “Life is a never-ending teacher of lessons. The question is, ‘Are we paying attention?’ In 2002, my life, which all along had been filled with many of these blessings-lessons—or blessons as I called them—presented the greatest challenge my family and I would have to face yet.” —Robert Lee, author

    I discovered this book on Facebook yesterday, when someone wrote a review that caught my attention. I like to read books by Jamaican authors, so I immediately bought the book on Kindle – and was I in for a totally unexpected experience- an inspirational experience. I read the first few pages with the intention of completing the book over a period of time – but, I just could not put it down. I read it through the night and completed it today.

"More Love, Less Fear: A Memoir. A Love Story about a Husband, a Wife, and the Deadly Disease of ALS," by Robert and Theresa Lee, is really Robert Lee’s tribute to his wife who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS) and finally succumbed to the disease. It’s a powerful testament to love, compassion and integrity. The book has given me a new perspective on ALS. I have never thought much about it and would get annoyed with the ice bucket challenge, which I viewed as a fad. I don't know anyone with ALS, and this book has really opened my eyes in a big way. While the book is directly about this family’s challenges with their wife/mother/sister’s struggle with ALS, and one husband’s incredible demonstration of love for his wife – there is a larger universal story here, of love, fear, hope, perseverance, courage, faith, forgiveness and release. This is a book that everyone should read, and I hope it goes out into the world and finds its way into millions of hands.

    Beautifully Written - Intensely Sad I'm unsure as to how to review this book. Few books have left me speechless, but this book has. Both beautiful and yet shockingly sad, the author takes the reader on a journey that will not be forgotten. I'm not going to give anything away, but if you want to read a true story of courage, pain and unconditional love. Read this book. It will remain in your heart forever.

    Just diagnosed with ALS I feel devastated with this frightening monster of disease. The message of less fear and more love is uplifting. The narrator is the care giver. He was really burned out in the process. I think my husband will schedule relief so this does not happen. This is a very helpful account for anyone with ALS to know they are not alone..
