Bob Havey is a dynamic, charismatic author and conference speaker who vividly portrays the power and practicality of God's life changing word and the monumental depth of His unconditional love, compassion, and faithfulness in a positive, challenging, spiritually stimulating style.
On January 22nd, 1994, Bob’s daughter, Erin, who had been battling leukemia for twenty two months, went to be with the Lord she had grown to love so much. In March of that same year, Bob was led to start a Christian newspaper and six months later The Messenger, which was distributed by more than ninety Christian bookstores in all six New England states, made its debut.
Bob discovered his gift for touching the lives of others with God's healing power while speaking before a group of two hundred men at a weekend retreat at Pilgrim Pines Conference Center in West Swanzey, New Hampshire several months following Erin's passing.
"I was terrified," Bob said. "I didn't know I was going to be asked to speak. But the Lord is faithful. He gave me the words. When I finished I saw tears in the eyes of all those men. I knew then that God could use me; that He could use my pain to help others. I give Him all the glory."

Be Not Dismayed
by Bob Havey
Be Not Dismayed: A story of spiritual triumph is the story of my fifteen year old daughter, Erin, and her 22 month battle with AML, an extremely aggressive form of leukemia. As a direct result of her illness, Erin and the entire Havey family came to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It is the story of astounding faith born of profound desperation; a story of the triumph of light over darkness.
