A diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) tests the faith of Jean and her daughter like nothing before. Prayer pleads for a miracle. Love discovers a motivation. Fear confronts faith. An ugly disease reveals beautiful character. A pure heart sees God. The unthinkable is miraculously handled. The certainty of God's grace and goodness are realized. This book will change the way you view disease and trials in life that walk us through the valley of death.
Jean walked through that valley in 2014. Having lost her ability to walk without falling, she was eventually diagnosed with ALS. The disease progressively paralyzes its victims, taking their ability to walk, bend, move, swallow and breathe.
Written by Jean's daughter, this ten-chapter book walks readers through Jean and her family's journey with ALS, from a faith-based perspective. Had God not shown up, there would be no book. Sure, there would have been a compelling story. But it is not the one the author wanted to tell. This work represents a legacy of God's faithfulness and ability to provide throughout one family's greatest battle.
It is the author's hope and prayer that this factual account, which draws from interviews and her personal journal, serves as a vehicle for God's presence and love to those who may be facing a similar trial.
All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the Upstate NYS Chapter of the ALS Association, St. John's Foundation, and Christian ministries.
