“We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment.”

– Romans 5:3-5


In his new book, Steve Healy shares the incredible lessons that his wife, Nikki taught him during their 18-year marriage and subsequent three-year battle with cancer, which concluded with her passing just one week prior to her 40th birthday.

This 52-week devotional is a result of the deep work Steve did the year following the death of his strong and spirited wife, who maintained a deep and authentic faith throughout her journey. Despite the brevity of her life, her journals, letters, videos, and messages left a legacy of wisdom forged through both her life’s joys and difficulties revealing life lessons focused on Jesus and applicable to living a life well-lived.

Each weekly chapter of The Best is Yet to Come delves into a different faith-based concept with personal stories, scripture, prayer, thought-provoking questions, and actionable steps. This inspiring guidebook takes readers through the year to embark on their own journeys and strengthen their character and forge a deeper faith in Christ.

Steve touts his greatest achievement to be the three children he shares with his late wife, Nikki: Bailey, Rian, and Everett.
