About The Book
It Gets Even Better is a positive and reassuring journey that pursues the dual purpose of testimony and exhortation. Author Jeffery P. Andler offers historical highlights of his unprecedented experience of God-ordained ministry and blessing, after emerging from equally unprecedented depths of hurt and betrayal. This journey has been born of a desire to develop a lasting record of God’s faithfulness that will encourage others who may find themselves in desperate circumstances, drained of all confidence and hope.
Along with the historical record, the author includes words of practical application and confirmation regarding the promises, presence, and provision of God. Truths that he once considered so familiar, but now has experienced more fully and completely. The depths of Andler’s experiences will provide guidance for the reader to draw upon when facing their own challenges.
When we experience unprecedented disappointment in people, it can indelibly impress upon us that people must never be the object of our faith and trust. While humiliation is unpleasant and embarrassing, it can permanently remind us of our ultimate weakness and need for God—who is greater and stronger. Wherever you may be in your life’s journey, you can find that It Gets Even Better.
Jeff Andler opens his heart in a way most people refuse to admit exists. In this record of his personal journey you will laugh and lament, rejoice and recoil, but above all you will be inspired by the enduring faith of a man and his commitment to the Lord Jesus. Jeff is a positive and productive communicator of the Gospel and I am honored to call him my friend. I encourage you to read this book and be ready to see that for all of us, “It gets even better.”
