This summer my son and I are making a point to read more non-fiction this summer. We both challenged each other to get out of the fiction and into different literary venues this summer.
So I kicked back and picked up an Amy Clipston book. She not only writes fantastic Amish and youth fiction she has an amazing story of her own to tell.
In The Gift of Love, bestselling fiction author Amy Clipston shares her story of almost losing the love of her life to kidney disease and the ultimate sacrifice that kept their family together. An ordinary woman who cherishes family above all else, Amy was challenged in every way―from her strength of character to the depths of her faith to the close-knit family that surrounds her. Enduring the good, the bad, and the really bad, she was determined to help her husband once again be the husband and father their family needed.
Amy’s story will give hope and encouragement to anyone who finds themselves waiting on God. Staring down adversity, Amy and her family received the most important gift of all, the gift of love. And regardless of your situation, this gift can be yours too.
An inspirational story of strength and determination, The Gift of Love is the triumph of one woman’s faith against all odds, and a soul-filling reminder that no matter how hard life gets, it is worth fighting for.
This was a great read and hard to put down! Amy tells the story in a fantastic way. She weaves together a car accident and God watching out for her. I felt like we could be sitting down for coffee (or tea in my case) and talking and following the journey.
I loved how she was so real throughout the whole story. How she described the ups and downs they went through and the road that led to the transplant. Amy's love for her husband shines through.
This book also shows the importance you can make in another person's life by giving of yourself and becoming an organ donor. It's such a simple thing to do and can be life changing for someone else.
So pick up a copy of the book and become an organ donor! Happy reading!
