He shares his story and what he learned about God in the process. Then Lynne talks with Michael Hingson, a blind sales manager whose guide dog, Roselle, saved his life on September 11, 2001 when together they escaped the attack on the World Trade Center (Thunder Dog: Thomas Nelson, ISBN# 978-1-4002-0472-4).
