I usually do not veer from decorating and design here at Far Above Rubies. But, I thought it was really important to share this book, and offer one to a reader.
Susan Parris is not just another author who has written a book about cancer. She is my cousin's wife and a mom to two amazing boys. She documented her journey through this horrific disease, and I was so moved when I read the book, I could not put it down and wanted to make sure others have the opportunity to read it and be inspired.
It's not just about cancer. It's *so* much more than that.
We all face those difficult things in life, and this book will encourage you no matter what you face. Her amazing journey of faith will inspire you to not give up, regardless of how hard the road ahead is. You'll cry with her, and you will cheer her on as she walks this road of uncertainty.
My aunt had given me this book one night after I led my choir practice, during a time when Luis and I were going through an unbelievably difficult situation at our church. I honestly just cried and cried as I read Susan's words, knowing that no matter what I faced, God would do something "utterly amazing."
"Utterly amazing." Those words kept coming back to me long after I read the book, and I knew it could inspire and encourage anyone and everyone -- whether you are Christian or not.
So, I am going to give one away to a reader.
Just leave a comment and let me know if you would like to be entered in the giveaway, then I will randomly choose a winner on Friday, Nov. 4.
If you want, you can also order Cancer Mom on amazon. Not only will you be inspired, but if you have a friend or family member facing not just cancer but anything difficult, they will be inspired and encouraged.
"Look at the nations and watch-- and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told." Habakkuk 1:5
