About the Book

“That was the moment, the turning point. That was the moment I fully understood the depth of Daddy’s love for me. Similar to the love of Christ, I knew his lack of consciousness—or even more realistically, the hostility of death’s doorstep—could not interfere with my father’s matchless love for his only daughter. While Christ’s suffering made me realize His love for me, my daddy’s suffering made me realize my love for him.”

Losing a parent is never easy. Losing a good parent is even crueler. But losing an admirable parent comparable to Christ, it’s an extremely bitter truth to accept. Written from the viewpoint of an undeniable Daddy’s girl, Because His Heart was Strong entwines the captivating journey of Rick Owens’ final decade of life through her own story, including the remarkable courage he demonstrated amidst prolonged suffering and the sheer legacy he imparted in death, highlighting the faith he placed in his Savior through it all.

About the Author

Chelsey Owens is the proud daughter of Ricky (in Heaven) and Patricia Owens. She was inspired to write Because his Heart was Strong after a brief conversation she had with her father during his extended illness. Apart from the special bond she shared with her dad, the two things Chelsey wants her readers to take away from the book are how remarkably strong he was and just how much she loved him. She also hopes her book will encourage those who have experienced profound heartache through suffering or intense grief through loss and influence fathers and daughters alike. While Chelsey wrote this book for her earthly father, she gives all the credit to her Heavenly Father and prays He uses it for His glory.
