We are celebrating! It has been ONE YEAR since Emily Lost Someone She Loved was released and we are continually amazed at all God has done. One of the biggest blessings has been receiving testimonies of the way God is using the book to minister to grieving children.
Recently Back2Back Ministries wrote to tell us about a precious 13 year old girl in India:
She was very close to her father (as most daughters in India tend to be) and to lose him without warning was a great and terrible shock ... The three of us sat on a bench outside and softly I read the book to her, watching anxiously to see how she might react. Though the life experiences for a young girl like "Emily" are quite a world apart from those of this girl, the turn of the story to Emily's loss was not. There were some tears by all of us, and we ended the evening affirming her pain, reminding her that she was loved and then gave the book to her to keep as her special book. The book is a wonderful blessing.
We are also excited for the upcoming release of Keep Your Eyes Up, Franklin!, available soon.
Our continued prayer is that these books will be used by God to comfort kids, strengthen their faith, and give them assurance that theirs is a Father who heals broken hearts and binds up wounds (Psalm 147:3).
