Today I am reviewing The Gift of Love: One Woman’s Journey to Save a Life, written by Amy Clipston.
I was blessed to receive a free copy of this book in July from the BookLook Blogger program and I reviewed it at that time, but I feel it is important to include it in the Amy Clipston Marathon…
the SECOND PRIZE WINNER will receive a signed copy of The Gift of Love and a bookmark from the author!
Here is a brief synopsis from GoodReads:
Their odds were 100,000 to one.
Her faith was 1 in a million.
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.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to read this book.
It is an amazing story… the terrible moments they shared, the pain, the harsh realities, the first transplant and subsequent failure of the kidney, then the second transplant and Joe regaining his health, as well as the joy they were finally able to share as a family once again.
If you don’t already own a copy of this book, buy a copy… if you cannot buy it, get a copy at your local public library, and read it. And read below to see how you can win a copy of it…
If you haven’t entered the contest, don’t wait another minute – it’s almost over… be sure to enter by midnight tonight (August 29, 2014). If you “like” this post or “follow” my blog, I will print out your name and put it with all the others, and two fortunate readers will be chosen on August 30, 2014 at midnight!
And if you feel led… consider being a blood donor and/or an organ donor. I’m a registered organ donor and I’m surprised at people who don’t choose to donate their organs when they die. This is something you can do when you no longer need your organs, and it could make a huge difference in the lives of others.
This is an exceptional story and one you do NOT want to miss!
… Amy, I’m praying with you – for Joe (and your donor recipient) to continue experiencing good health and for their kidneys to last a good, long time (30 years sounds about right).
