Congrats Teri! You are the winner!!!!!!
And Still She Laughs is a book by Kate Merrick. Kate was the author of a popular blog detailing the cancer battle of her young daughter. When her daughter died, it was time for Kate to keep living. But how? How could she live when her daughter had died?
Kate chooses to do this by diving into stories in the Bible. These are the stories of real women like Bathsheba and Sarah who have found joy no matter what the circumstances.
I'll be honest with you. This is a tough read. The sadness of a mother losing their child isn't really something you can compare to much else. However, if you are in the valley, Merrick's words will help encourage you that you are not in that valley by yourself. She has been in it, and she is clawing her way out of it.
But there is also humor. And happy times. And laughter. It is all mixed together.
I actually want to give away this book to a reader who needs it for herself or for someone she knows. So if you leave a comment, I will be sending this book to a random winner!
