Overview

Gracie-Standing With Hope chronicles a young woman awakening from a horrific car accident to a life filled with searing pain, enormous loss, and brutal challenges. All of which is dwarfed by her indomitable spirit and desire to live a life of meaning.

With a foreword by internationally known comedian, Jeff Foxworthy, this book will take readers on amazing journey. From an intensive care unit to spending time with wounded warriors at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, to providing artificial limbs to amputees in West Africa, to performing on some of the world's largest stages.

Spanning decades of loss, hilarious moments, tears, and unimaginable pain, Gracie's story takes readers to breathtaking views of redemption that will strengthen even the weakest hearts.

A unique quality about this book is, for the first time ever, a woman is telling her story through her husband's writing;
Gracie's husband, Peter, partnered with her to pen this story. Their continued romance proves that love truly does conquer even the harshest of circumstances.

Captivated by the outrageous personalities of Gracie and Peter, readers will find them moved by the powerful insights, candid revelations, and over-the-top humor woven together in this incredible story that will equip each reader faced with hardships to continue standing with hope.

Editorial Reviews

Theresa Fulton
Is there a God Who cares? Gracie (and Peter's) life-story says YES YES and YES again! Love this book! It is well written and real. It reads like a roller-coaster ride so you might want to buckle-up...it's a bumpy read!

"One thing I'm learning in this walk with Christ: it's not about our strengths, but rather when we offer our weaknesses in God's service; that's where the real triumphs occur." -- Gracie Rosenberger
Carl Sperapani
Gracie's story is a compelling example of grit and grace. She and Peter have bared their souls in this gut-wrenching tale of the car accident that nearly took Gracie's life - and the long journey of pain and healing that has shaped her life since 1983. While it is difficult to comprehend the daily pain Gracie lives with, it is beautiful to read how God has sustained her and her family in the midst of that pain.

Meet the Author

Emerging from a catastrophic car accident resulting in six dozen operations, including the amputation of both legs, Gracie Rosenberger now steps onto the stages of the world to share the same hope she relies upon.

Performing since childhood, Gracie’s formal study as a vocal performance major helped develop her powerful voice that has brought audiences across the country to their feet. But Gracie counts as her most moving invitation the request by the commanding general of Walter Reed Army Medical Center to perform at the groundbreaking ceremony for the training center for military personnel experiencing limb loss.

Recognizing the need for quality prosthetic limbs in developing countries, Gracie and her husband, Peter, founded the evangelical outreach, Standing with Hope, which equips and trains local workers to build high quality prosthetic limbs for their own people. Gracie and Peter, along with their sons, Parker and Grayson live in Nashville, TN
