    A truthfully told story of living with breast cancer

    An account of life living with breast cancer and trusting in God's plans in one's life to use this, and other difficult obstacles to face, to give God the glory. Written with honesty and insight in an effort to give others a mental picture of what it means to trust God's word.

    Never Give Up

    I recommend ¿Of Fairy Tales and Happily Ever After¿ to anyone who is battling breast cancer or any other life threatening illness. The author is someone that - even in the midst of a ¿worst case scenario¿ assures us that there is always HOPE. She has found humor in the worst of circumstances and has seen God working in her life at every turn of the road. I too am under treatment for inflammatory breast cancer and this book has helped me to look for and find joy where there seems to be none -- to never give up the fight -- and to believe God when He says ¿Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.¿ (Matt. 11:28) S.L.

    Inspriring true story!

    Terri Gray's account of her battle with breast cancer is truly inspirational. Terri bravely faces each day with the love and support of her family, friends and especially her Savior Jesus Christ, in whom she places her complete trust. When you read this story, you may just decide you want to have some of that awe-inspiring faith for yourself! Terri does not feel sorry for herself, that would be a waste of her time. Instead she injects humor in all that she deals with each day. No situation is hopeless when God is part of the equation!

    A powerful witness for trusting Jesus!

    Terri's steps in her walk with the Lord are on each and every page. Her unwaverying trust in God in all things in her life are truly present each moment of each day. She 'lives' her 'talk' - I know her well and have seen her faith continue to grow stronger during extremely challenging circumstances. She is always able to find a 'positive' in every situation!

    The only way to view life!

    This book written by Terri Gray shows us how to live life....One Day At A Time. If this is our goal, the disapointments and speedbumps of life will not slow us down. We will know that God has given us this one day that we are living and that He is in control of whether we are allowed to have each day. Terri shows this well in this book of encouragement and strength. Her way of living each day to bless others instead of wallowing in the hurt she faces each day is an inspiration to all. Great reading to bring the sunshine of a loving God to your day!
