Judy Coble, a member at Gassville Baptist Church and local artist and art teacher, experienced a brain aneurysm in 2009 with a poor prognosis of survival.  Her book, just recently published, chronicles her surgery, the waiting, and the eventual recovery.  Her family shares in her book concerning the days and weeks when Judy was not aware of what was happening around her.  Then Judy shares her early memories and her struggle to regain the abilities she had lost through the aneurysm and stroke.  And the fact that Judy has written this book and typed most of it is evidence of her great progress.

Judy wanted to share her experience with others to declare God's grace has been sufficient from day one till today.  Thank you, Judy, for sharing your story with us!

Copies of her book are available directly from her,, and our office has a limited number of copies for sale.

Our prayer for this event is that women would be challenged by God’s Word and transformed by a personal relationship with Christ that impacts their families, churches, and communities for His glory. And long after the Living Proof Live Simulcast has ended, they would be able to say: “I AM LIVING PROOF!”

Dr. Tommy Cunningham, pastor of Mountain Home Baptist Church, has written a book entitled “The Preacher.”  Dr. Cunningham’s book is a humorous autobiography.  Writing about growing up in a medical doctor’s home in the 50’s and 60’s in the delta of Arkansas, you will read of a less complicated time yet a time of unbelievable mischief. Next there is a quick look at the life of a pastor spanning some forty-five years from the turbulent 60’s to the present.  You will laugh and laugh again at the “things” that happened in this minister’s life.  

Dr. Cunningham will hold a book signing on Sunday, August 14th from 2-4 pm at Mountain Home Baptist Church.  The public is invited to come meet Dr. Cunningham.  Copies of “The Preacher” will be available for purchase and Dr. Cunningham will be happy to sign the book for you.  Refreshments will be served during the book signing.

In addition, you can purchase copies of "The Preacher" for $15 at the church office at 1960 Glenbriar, Mountain Home.  If you want your copy mailed to you, then send $20 for each copy to MHBC, 1960 Glenbriar, Mt Home, AR 72653.  The profit from the sale of "The Preacher" will go toward the Honduran mission team.  Your order should specify how many copies you would like and your check should be made to MHBC-HONDURAS MISSION FUND. Be sure and include your mailing address and zip code.
