Davey Blackburn Lost Wife During Home Invasion

On November 11, 2011, Davey and Amanda Blackburn loaded up a moving truck and drove from Greenville, South Carolina to Indianapolis, Indiana to start Resonate Church, a place they hoped would bring new life to a city and reach people who didn’t know God.

Almost four years later on November 10, 2015, the unspeakable happened. Davey came home from the gym to find that his wife, who was pregnant, had been shot three times during a burglary gone wrong in their home. Thankfully, their fifteen-month-old son was left unharmed in his bedroom just down the hall. Amanda passed away twenty-four hours later.

The story hit headlines across the country, and the months following Amanda’s death brought Davey to the lowest level in his life. Nothing Is Wasted is the deeply moving story of Davey’s journey of despair and hardship, hope and healing, and how he has discovered firsthand that God has a bigger purpose in our pain. It is through this tragedy and Davey’s brokenness, forgiveness, and willingness to share his story that God’s presence and healing power allows triumph, victory, and forgiveness have the last word.

Nothing Is Wasted: The Courage to Find Purpose in Your Pain, Davey’s forthcoming book, a heart-wrenching yet inspiring story of a man wrestling with loss, grief, and forgiveness after the murder of his wife, and how he discovered that God always has a bigger purpose in our pain.
