Cancer, Faith, and Unexpected Joy
What My Mother Taught Me About How To Live and How to Die
"I've taught you how to live; now I want to teach you how to die. You don't have to be afraid."
When Becky Baudouin's mother spoke those words to her, they weren't said lightly. Her mother had an inoperable tumor--and after months of treatment, there was no hope for a longer life. There was, however, assurance of life everlasting.
Learned in the dark hours of pain and the bright moments of love, the honest insights on fear, loss, and grief that Becky shares in this book are applicable to everyone's story--including yours. If you're losing a loved one or facing death, you won't be alone on your journey: Becky walks with you every step of the way. There are even questions for reflection to guide you to comfort, whether you're reading on your own or with others sharing the struggle.
In times when hope seems lost, Becky's story reveals that God is the only source for a spirit's true healing. For anyone living with the tension of wanting to hold on yet needing to let go, Cancer, Faith, and Unexpected Joy demonstrates a powerful and profound love.
"In Cancer, Faith, and Unexpected Joy, Becky's mother becomes my mother; her grief, my grief; her hope, my hope. With a combination of emotion, vulnerability, and dailiness, this book offers practical comfort and wisdom for anyone in a place of trial or suffering."
