Bryan Koch is a former pro baseball player who was selected in the 26th round of the 1982 MLB Draft by the Chicago White Sox. A promising career was cut short just a few years later when Koch was blinded in his left eye by a 90 mile per hour fastball.

Koch's baseball injury led him into ministry and for 33 years, he was the pastor of GT Church in Reading, PA. For many years, Bryan served God faithfully but living that faith out was tested in June of 2015 when a severe motorcycle accident took the life of his wife of 28 years, Lynn. Bryan survived but was in a coma, endured 19 surgeries, 36 blood transfusions and had his left leg amputated.

This pain turned Bryan's story into one of triumph and purpose. His new book "I'm All Right: A Journey of Tragedy and Triumph" is available now. Y0u can learn more about Bryan at his website BryanKoch.net.

Today on the podcast, Bryan shares his incredibly powerful story of playing pro baseball, pastoring a church, losing his wife, finding forgiveness and going from bitter to better.
