Praise for "From Lump to Laughter-The Story of Grace"
"From Lump to Laughter, Connie Hill's remarkably honest journal, details her simultaneous battle with breast cancer and her reconnection to God.It is faith-filled without being preachy, informative without being dull and inspirational without being sappy. Well done!" Celia Rivenbark, syndicated humor columnist, author
As I read it, I cried with you, laughed with you, and prayed with you. I learned to love your three boys who showed such adoration for you during this trying period. It isperfect "medicine" for anyone with the same problem. I will certainly make sure that this copy of the book circulates among my friends. It will not just sit on a book shelf. Having seen you recently, it's too bad that your readers don't have the benefit of viewing what a beautiful, happy, enthusiastic person you now are. So I say "Mozel Tov (congratulations) on doing this Mitzvah (good thing) for other gals with the same problem that you faced. It certainly will give them something wonderful to look forward to. Love it and you too. Helene (Wayne); Syndicated Freelance Writer
"Had this information been available to me when my stepdaughter was diagnosed, I would have devoured this book and then been armed with the truth of what she was experiencing. I would have done more, understood more, known what to say, and most importantly, I would have prayed for her specific needs. Reading about Connie's journey to a renewed faith in God and her empowerment through this ordeal is amazing." Robin Lyon
"I don't think a lot of people know what to say [to others with breast cancer],but reading your story made me very aware of the connection between people no matter what different circumstances we are going through at the time." Hannah Gaerlan
This book blessed me and touch me deeply. Connie is a gifted writer. This is a touching story of a journey of hope and joy. As Connie shares her personal and emotional experience with breast cancer it is so heart wrenching and at the same time very informative. The apprehensions over a bleak diagnosis and the fear of the unknown are told with such openness and frankness. It is so inspiring and moving to read of her courage and unselfish concern for her family during this time of distress and anxiety for herself. I enjoyed the humor and also the honesty displayed throughout this amazing well-written book. The soul searching times she shared about her deep and growing relationship with God were awesomely descriptive and stirring. Brenda Donnell
This story is inspirational, and I think it serves as a good lesson for all of us, including those of us who have not been personally affected by breast cancer. Erin Gora
It is one of the most beautiful, inspirational and amazing books that I have ever read. Connie you have a gift. Krista Johnson
It was hard for me to put down. I was utterly overwhelmed with emotion. Reading this has certainly gotten me thinking about a lot of things-especially my own family and my own life. Thank you for sharing your ups and downs. You are a brilliant writer. The humor you use in your writing has had me laughing out loud. Elizabeth Wilson
