Welcome! Thank you for coming to my site. I am Dann Stadler, I am a husband, father, son, brother, friend – a writer, author and speaker and am just your average Christian, trying to grow every day. I have been a Christian since I was old enough to grasp the concept of salvation, and have had a lifetime of experiences, both mundane and extraordinary that have reinforced my Christian faith to make it where it is central to my life today. I hope you enjoy these pages, feel free to comment on anything you wish!

Why “Saturday’s Promise”?  God first put the idea for this blog on my heart during Easter week.  As I meditate on the full meaning of Easter it seems I make fresh discoveries every year. On Maundy Thursday I consider Jesus’ humility as He washed His disciples feet; Good Friday brings to mind the awesome emotional suffering Jesus must have endured in Gethsemane, His physical pain during the Passion; and of course, Easter Sunday we celebrate the Risen Christ and how He changed the world.

I’ve often found myself wondering about Easter Saturday. For most of His disciples and followers, the world must have looked so dark, as if evil had won. On the other hand, it must have held great hope for so many others, as Jesus had told them many times and spoken in various ways about rising on the third day. Every Easter and every communion, we relive the last supper, we remember The Passion, the Cross, and His Resurrection over 2000 years ago. But here’s the thing, there aren’t any clocks in Heaven. In fact, I really believe time is something God uses only here on earth. I don’t think Heaven has any yesterdays, todays, or tomorrows – it just ‘is’. (Psalm 90:4; 2 Peter 3:8)

Meanwhile, during our earthly lives we are all caught on Saturday- between the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. With no yesterday in Heaven I truly believe that Jesus is RIGHT NOW, being crucified for my sins – but He is also rising RIGHT NOW to give me new life! So I live in Saturday’s Promise, where the sins of my past are being vanquished by the promise of His Resurrection tomorrow! Selah!

  1. Loved your book “Angels in the Fire”. Would like to send you my book entitled, “Coincidence?”

  2. Just read an excerpt of your book, then checked out your blog. Just wanted to say thank you for your blog on eroding faith as just completed evening talking with friend about her counts, poor prayer life, white lies & subtle defiance that erode our relationship w Jesus. Then of course realize am also talking about what areas I need to improve…just felt encouraged as I read your blog. Blessings to you & your family,


  3. Hello Dann, I just finished reading your book, it keep me on my toes daggling for the ceiling the whole story through. What shocked me was, I started reading your story last night, I ran across it as I was eating dinner an reading the new flyer from Family Christian store, what shocked me was. I received a phone call from my Sister in Law today telling me that her 26 year old Nephew was going the wrong way on a four lane highway in Spooner Wi and crashed into a car…The nephew was killed and the other person was okay… Now I don’t believe that this is a coincidence I know there is a message here from God.. I have been living the word for 23 years…. I am just not sure what it is? (your story was very inspiring and minding opening. We have a tendency to think God is as we are…. which in reality there is no comparison between us and God… Any Comment…

  4. Private message sent….

  5. I just read your inspiring story. You both are so special and have been an inspiration to many. I would truly love to have you both come and speak at my church. I lov you both. Keep doing Gods work.

  7. The book was wonderful. WOW what an adventure you two have had. Thank you for sharing your inspiring faith and love for our Lord and Savior. You and Tracey are an AMAZING testament to GOD’S love and never ending faithfulness. May God continue to BLESS all of you. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Hello Dann,
    I have just finished reading Angels in the Fire. I really loved it and I am so glad I saw this website at the end of the book. I felt like I really needed to hear your story. It has really inspired me. I know God and I love him so much, but there are so many times I try to do my will instead of his. And reading your story and it seeing how much faith you and Tracey have and always have is amazing.

    I too had a bad car wreck when I was 16 and I had a traumatic brain injury where I had to learn everything over again. It has been a struggle for a while but I know I would never had made it without God. Even though I can’t imagine what you both endured because lucky for me, I don’t remember anything from my wreck, but I’m so glad to hear your story and how much you faith you both have!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!!

    Also I hope maybe one day this will be an audiobook or a dvd so I can share with my friends who do not read books. Thanks again and may God bless you and your family more than he already has!

  9. Hi Dann,
    I’m hooked on your book Angels in the Fire. Can’t wait to finish it so my wife can read it!! Just wanted to share this website with you. It takes some time to look through all of it’s content, but keep an open heart, soul and mind when you read it. Spread the word if you feel the urge!! God Bless!!

  10. I have almost completed your book “Angels in the Fire”. I picked the book up at Atlanta Airport and love it. It is a miracle what God has brought you and Tracey through.

    Can’t wait to share your book with others. May God continue to Bless you and your family!

  11. Just finished Angels in the Fire. Absolutely could not put it down. A well written, captivating story.
    One agonizes with your challenges, and celebrates your victories through out the book. God bless you and yours as your adventure continues.

  12. Hi Dann,
    I just finished Angels in the Fire and wanted to let you know I cried with you and Tracey every step of your pain. Oh how I wish this was required reading for high schoolers as they begin driving and learn to say no to drinking.
    Thank you for sharing that Angels are with us. May God continue to bless you and your sweet family. I’m praying for you now. With Jesus’ love, s.

  13. I just finished the book and am so touched and inspired. I believe that you are no ordinary Christian, but rather that you and your family walk a much closer walk that a lot of us to with The Lord. I was delighted to read about SaturdaysPromise. I can’t help big notice that nothing had been posted since December. I pray that all is well and that we will hear from you soon again. God is using you to touch many hearts.

  14. I just finished reading your book Angels in the Fire. I couldn’t put it down. I am going to give it to my neighbor who recently got out of the hospital from severe burns. I believe this book will help him as he is still suffering a lot from his scars and fights discouragement. (He still is facing surgery so he can use his hands.) I was definitely struck by your account of God’s miraculous intervention repeatedly in your lives. My 19-year-old daughter Bethany was killed by a drunk driver and there were many miracles before, during and after her death. God actually woke me up and told me she was going to die. The book about all the miracles we experienced is called When You Walk Through the Fire. Like you, I wrote it so others would know that even though we face tragedy, God can give us the strength and comfort we need to get through it and turn it into a testimony. The website about my daughters death and the miracles is called RememberBethany.com. I speak for Mothers Against Drunk Driving at many schools and police stations and give out the website. Although it talks about the drunk driving accident, it also tells how God helped us through it and was the inspiration for the book. God bless you Mr. Stadler. I know your message will reach many souls for God.

  15. maybe we can meet up for a cup of coffee sometime, juts read your book, love it, great story. I’m in Cedarburg.

    Take Care!


  16. Just started your book “Angels in the Fire” and already after three pages I know this will be impossible to put down. Very rare for a book to hold me like that!

    I have just found from your back page, this website and thought I would introduce “Friends of Jesus” forum and wanted to ask how you would feel about having your web page mentioned, also would you like your”Saturdays Promise” posted with a link back to here. This will, God willing create a bigger awareness of your site.

    God bless

  18. Hello Dann and Tracey,

    My daughter is 12 years old in the 7th grade. She goes to a Christian school and loved your book – found it very inspiring and encouraging.

    She is doing a book report about your book and needs to add details about the ‘authors’. She has tried to find basic info about to include in her report – Is there a forum where she might be able to ask a couple of questions?

    Thanks very much for your gift of the book.

    Keep up the good work!

  19. Hi Dann, Saw your book in our church;as bookstore – then heard your interview on CBS, Bought the book and read it. Very well written!! Powerful testimonies of God’s interventions and the mysteries of human suffering.

  20. Hi Dann, Aunt Rita told me about your book almost a year ago. I finally ordered from my favorite bookstore and started and finished it last night. My Mom your Mom’s Aunt Priscilla passed away last month and I know this book will help me get through this very sad time in my life. I know I was guided to pick this book to read last night. Phyllis

  21. Received your book as a gift from my sister living in Australia. Don’t know how she came by it, but I suppose she sent it because I live in Port St Lucie (which she visited about five years ago), as I moved here in 1988. I too had a life experience of being in an accident, about a year before yours. It changed a lot of things concerning life, attitudes, experiences not known by me prior, but confirmed God’s continuing love and grace. My wife and I had been married for twenty one years, celebrating just days before arriving in Florida to be near her mother and step father. Our life together, like yours, was filled with many ups and downs. Miscarriage of our son, five months into her pregnancy, 9 years of infertility, being told we would never conceive naturally, my wife having ovarian cancer, over 2 years of chemo. Yet so many stories of how God blessed us beyond our hopes and dreams, much like He has done for you. I am rattling on, but I wanted to say how moved I was by your book, and to know that the Lord has bless you, despite what people would think are setbacks. We know He has done so to prove again and again, His great love for us, His children! Love in Christ, Drew
