Faith that God will not only provide for entire civilizations and countries but faith that He is there when we as individuals need Him most. Through his own experiences of COMING BACK from setbacks, injuries, heart attacks, job losses, a false arrest, and all of life’s curveballs Jeffery has maintained a happy and positive attitude. Jeffery examines why these things happened to him and how he came back from each of these instances. Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do seemingly good things happen for bad people? Jeffery explains that life will never be perfect so live each day for what it is, just one more gift from God. See how Jeffery L. Coffey despite all the obstacles he faced did return to Caldwell Community College in 2006 at age forty six and became Grandpa “oldest college basketball player”.
