Struggling and persistently fighting against family put-downs and abuse of every kind turned Dale Fiegland into a gun-toting, knife-wielding, Mafia runner addicted to alcohol and drugs-the kind of man God loves to get ahold of and change. When Dale finally stopped fighting God and asked Him for help, miraculous events followed that can only be called a Conspiracy of Grace.
Raised in northern Ohio, Dale Fiegland graduated from Anderson College, taught in the inner-city schools of Cleveland, and attained success in business before he joined the ministry. He earned a master of arts degree in counseling from Liberty University and was the counseling pastor for twenty-five years at Riverside Church in Fort Myers, Florida. Dale, who holds the title of pastor emeritus, maintains an active counseling practice, specializing in assisting those dealing with drug or alcohol addictions or various forms of abuse. Numerous churches have sought his help as a consultant in handling difficult matters.
Robbi Cary is the author and publisher of two books. Her first one, a heartwarming gift book, No Matter What, It's a Good Day When: Finding Blessings in Difficult Days, includes encouraging prose; short Scriptures; and the delightful, full-color photography of Patricia Hunter. This small hardback book offers comfort and inspires us to live well in all circumstances by seeking God, trusting His goodness, and persevering in faith. Robbi wrote the book after experiencing God's very real help in painful struggles in her life, and then realizing there was a great need for small uplifting gift books. Best-selling authors Ann Voskamp (One Thousand Gifts), Patsy Clairmont (God Uses Cracked Pots), and Beth K. Vogt (Mommy Come Lately) heartily endorsed the book. Robbi coauthored her second book, a memoir, Conspiracy of Grace: A Wild Tale of Transformation, with Dale Fiegland. As a child, Dale experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. The pain from these experiences drove him to fight and protect himself every way he could, turning him into a gun-toting, knife-wielding, alcoholic Mafia runner and enforcer. While God had pursued him for years, Dale resisted. When Dale finally surrendered and asked the Lord for His help, miracles began to happen that can only be called a Conspiracy of Grace. Robbi enjoys helping others discover God's goodness, power, proof, and surprises; learn about and develop their God-given gifts; and encourage those she can in their writing. Robbi and her husband, Keith, a soon-to-be retired circuit judge, have been married for thirty-six years. They live on a ranch in sunny southwest Florida and enjoy their four grown sons and two wonderful daughters-in-law.
