DO THE NEXT THING is a book of encouragement and a manual of how to regain control over your life when you get the diagnosis of Cancer. Everything in your life seems to be spinning out of control even as you try to reel it back in. It is a guide for caregivers and those who want to reach out to someone suffering from the disease but aren't quite sure how they can best minister to the person who is in the battle. DO THE NEXT THING is written through the view of a husband's eyes on how to walk his wife through the fears and the unknown. This book is a "how to" and a "love story" of his love for her and the love shown by others. Most of all it is a book about God's love and faithfulness in our darkest hour.
"I knew Glen for years, and he practiced what he preached- Especially when it came to loving his wife. He is a great model for any man who is walking his wife through difficult times."
"When it comes to growing in the faith, we often know what the right thing to do is. Actually doing it is another matter. In this excellent little book by Glen, he does more than encourage us; he pushes us to do the next, right thing that invariably leads to real maturity. I highly recommend it "

"Do the Next Thing is a practical manual for both the cancer patient and the caregiver. By emphasizing the spiritual, Pastor Jackson turns the trial of battling cancer into a means for spiritual elevation.
This book addresses and answers questions that every patient asks but often not to medical professionals. Too frequently, the health care provider glosses over the emotional component of a patient's fight against cancer.
Do the Next Thing provides an intimate look at this dynamic from the perspective of a loving husband and a man of faith. I truly feel that individuals with cancer, their caregivers, and medical professionals will all benefit greatly from the anecdotes and advice so wittily and accurately shared in this work."
