About the Book

Grab your sides in laughter one minute and your box of tissue in the next as Nia Stivers's memoir, Wobbly Legs on a Firm Foundation, invites you to find humor in our own shortcomings while letting your jaw drop at the sovereignty and goodness of our God.

"You have a progressive neuromuscular disease."
"Your father will not live to walk you down the aisle at your wedding."
"Because of your disease, you will be unable to have children of your own."

The words of her doctors rocked Nia Stivers’s world. Nothing, however, could shake The Rock of Ages. These statements could have robbed her of living with joy; however, they would become opportunities for God to give new life to Nia.

Are you devastated with news you've received? Maybe you're too blessed to be depressed! No matter what your stained past or your unsolved future, God wants to have His hand in it. Step out of the darkness, and allow the Creator to illuminate how He's been wooing you to Him all along. Just face it: He's in love with you.

About the Author

Nia (Cox) Stivers is a Nationally Board-Certified high school English teacher at North Sand Mountain School in Higdon, Alabama. She loves teaching creative writing and sharing her own stories with family and friends. After hearing them say, "You should write a book," Nia finally listened, obeyed God's persistent calling, and Wobbly Legs on a Firm Foundation was born.

Nia lives in Bridgeport, Alabama, with her husband (and high school sweetheart) Jason, where they both teach Sunday school at First Baptist Church of Bridgeport. They have two furry children, their mouthy and energetic weenie dogs, Oscar and Penelope. God has also given them a "chosen" son, Bubba, who is a United States Army soldier, and daughter-in-law BJ, who recently gave them a granddaughter Vayda Nicole. Nia also claims hundreds of her students as her spiritual sons and daughters; they are her "babies."
