Etched Upon My Heart by Jill Kelly
Jill Kelly the wife of former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly has written a book, Etched Upon My Heart, which is now available nationwide in book stores and on Amazon. I will be receiving a complimentary copy of Etched Upon My Heart through FlyBy Promotions for review purposes. For my local followers you might recognize the name Jim Kelly, he grew up in East Brady, PA at the southern end of Clarion County.
Here is a synopsis of Etched Upon My Heart: Every Christian parent today wrestles with the challenge of how to raise kids in a God-honoring, morally sound way. In ETCHED . . . UPON MY HEART, Jill Kelly offers up the unforgettable episodes of her life-some sorrowful, others filled with joy-as a "living epistle" to her daughters. For the many other Christian mothers who also long to pass on their hard-won knowledge of God's steadfast love and healing grace to their children, Kelly's down-to-earth reflections provide an inspiring example.
As she writes, "God will break our hearts, but He will hold the pieces. He will cradle us and redeem every tear we cry." Although great personal pain-her young son Hunter's death, her husband's infidelity-informs these pages, Kelly's story is ultimately one of forgiveness, reconciliation, and hope. Through the moments in time that Jill Kelly recounts, readers will recognize the daily reality and eternal value of God's plan for their own lives.
I am looking forward to reviewing Etched Upon My Heart and encourage you to pick up or order a copy of your own.
Jim and Jill Kelly formed the Hunter's Hope Foundation in memory of their son Hunter to provide support for research in to Krabbe Disease and other Leukodystrophies.
