About the Book

Read by the author.

Even on the days you struggle to stay strong, you can live a resilient and hopeful life.

After receiving a devastating brain cancer diagnosis, Jay Hewitt had a decision to make: Should he give up on faith or practice what he preached and trust that with God all things are possible? In I Am Weak, I Am Strong, Jay chronicles his journey of turning toward Jesus even when circumstances urged him to turn away. Faith in action for Jay included competing in an IRONMAN triathlon while undergoing cancer treatment. His race was a grand gesture of love for his young daughter--and a call to resilience for all of us.

I Am Weak, I Am Strong reminds us that our true "superpower" comes from God. As you read Jay's honest and inspiring words, you will:

  • Understand the counterintuitive wisdom of strength in weakness
  • Learn to discern the voice of God and his calling for your life
  • Live with resilience in the face of any trial
  • Discover how God moves mountains--even when you least expect it
  • Feel empowered to pray authentically, boldly, and continually


For anyone who is searching for hope in anxiety and grief, needs validation and compassion in times of doubt, is curious about faith in the face of death, or longs for a more authentic relationship with God, I Am Weak, I Am Strong will teach you that faith grows from the freedom to doubt.

Strength grows from realizing how weak we are on our own. And light grows when we follow God's dreams for us, even through the darkness.

Reflection questions are included in the audiobook companion PDF download.
