Why, I wondered, did Jesus heal Lazarus but not Todd? Did I not have enough faith? Where was the miracle I prayed for? "Hope, fear, disappointment, joy, and sorrow tint and shape Brenda's faith in God as she watched Todd's illness deepen and death draw near. In the end, the God who sent His Son into the world to save us all is the God Brenda describes as saving her from profound grief and loss." -Dan Brooks, pastor "Todd's sweet submission to suffering made a lasting impression on me. Few people have impacted me the way Todd did." -Carol Loescher, medical doctor "Todd's diagnosis held the capacity for utter devastation. Instead, Todd was one of those truly remarkable kids who was able to live out his short time with absolute grace. The manner in which Todd and his family lived his last year demonstrate just how powerful it can be to call upon your faith." -John Chandler, surgeon Brenda Lurtey is a fun-loving wife and mother.
