The 83-year-old author, Dr. Jake Till, has lived with Type 1 Diabetes 57 years and has been taking insulin for over 54 years. In this book he tells of his personal experiences of living with the disease and how he overcame the difficulties and problems of being a diabetic. He has been on the front lines of service as a United States Air Force Chaplain, a minister, a businessman, a student and an educator. He and Sandra, his wife of over 52 years, are parents of six wonderful children and thirteen grandchildren.

If you are a diabetic or know someone who has the disease, Till presents practical suggestions which will help you enjoy and live a "successful" life while overcoming the health problems associated with uncontrolled diabetes. Dr. Till is living proof that the suggestions in this book really work!

For many years I have known Dr. Jake Till and his family and he has been my pastor and dear friend for the past eleven years. During this time I was aware that he was a diabetic and noted how well he took care of himself, carefully monitoring his condition. This book is a "must read" for anyone with diabetes or who has a friend or family member with the disease. Not only does Dr. Till tell what works and does not work from his own experiences, he encourages you every step of the way in dealing with diabetes. He has vast knowledge about this condition and is always eager to help others by sharing that information. Dr. Till is such an encourager and one of the most optimistic persons I have ever met. When you ask Dr. Till how he is doing, his reply is always, "I've got the VICTORY." This is truly the attitude by which he lives his life.

Usually when we think we know all there is to know about a subject, there is much more to be learned. With an open mind, a willing heart and a love for our fellowman, we can accomplish all things through God who strengthens us.

It is my sincere hope that as you read this book you will be uplifted and encouraged to approach each day planning to live it to the fullest. I trust that God will bring you peace, happiness, joy and successful living.
