Good Morning Beautiful: Winning the Battle over Seizures

Overview

At Two-And-A-Half, Christina was Autistic. She didn't speak and had the cognitive ability of an infant. With one hundred seizures a day, life was being ripped away by a relentless villain-epilepsy. When doctors gave up, we hung on to hope and became her advocates-researching, praying, and believing for a miracle. A special diet, with roots in scripture, became the first miracle.

Overview

At Two-And-A-Half, Christina was Autistic. She didn't speak and had the cognitive ability of an infant. With one hundred seizures a day, life was being ripped away by a relentless villain-epilepsy. When doctors gave up, we hung on to hope and became her advocates-researching, praying, and believing for a miracle. A special diet, with roots in scripture, became the first miracle. Christina proved nothing is impossible when she repeated words to a song, "Good Morning Beautiful." Extremely delayed, it was a huge milestone. Her story caught the attention of the national recording artist who recorded the song and prior to brain surgery, people around the world began praying for her. Now seizure and autism free, therapists cite services are no longer needed as Christina's file doesn't match the patient.

What People Are Saying

Daniel Darling
All of us parents fear the day the doctor tells us something is terribly wrong with one of our children. My friend Paulette George and her husband lived this fear as they watched, prayed, and wondered in agony while little Christina suffered from a rare and abnormal condition. Good Morning Beautiful is their heartfelt story of faith. You will be challenged, encouraged, and moved to tears as you read Paullete's raw but inspiring journey. As a parent, I hope I would exhibit the same faith and hope if my child were to endure what little Christina endured. This book is destined to move your heart toward the Heavenly Father, whose loving arms carry us during our most difficult trials. Whether you're caring for a similarly suffering child or not, you'll want to pick up this book and read the story of an ordinary family on an extraordinary journey of faith. (Daniel Darling Senior Pastor, Gages Lake Bible Church, columnist for Crosswalk.com, and author of Teen People of the Bible, and Crash Course, Forming a Faith Foundation for Life.)
Jim Abrahams
Paulette George's wonderfully written Good Morning, Beautiful is more than an emotional insight into a family's battle with epilepsy, more than a compelling argument for the ketogenic diet, and more than just hope that victory can happen. It offers strength to persevere and inspiration for parent empowerment. (Jim Abrahams The Charlie Foundation To Help Cure Pediatric Epilepsy)
