Speaking of your story being bigger than you, a friend of mine, Emily Cook, is giving away Kindle copies of her book, Weak and Loved: A Mother Daughter Love Story, this week. The week marks three years of seizure freedom for her daughter, Aggie.
“In October 2008, shortly after her fourth birthday, my daughter Aggie was diagnosed with epilepsy. The year that followed was one of the most difficult years of our lives.
So this story is not solely about Emily’s daughter’s condition, fight and brain surgery, but embraces a larger theme of motherhood and how to embrace weakness when all around us society says to “be tough.”
“I am hoping to get my book into as many hands as possible,” Emily recently wrote in an email.
Here’s what one reviewer said on Amazon: “…when she was often reduced to nothing, God carried her through, with or without her cooperation, her understanding or acceptance. This book helped me understand what true grace really is – the totally undeserved, bountiful love of God, which no circumstances can ever take away from us.”
You can pick up your free copy here.
