Thirty-plus operations and countless physical therapy sessions later, his recovery has truly been remarkable, and spiritually he and his family are stronger than ever before. Brian and his wife, Mel, tell their captivating story of God's grace and sovereignty.
Cinderella. Snow White. Sleeping Beauty. These beloved stories all conclude with, “and they lived happily ever after.” We sigh, smile, and know there’s an amazing story of love, adventure, and redemption coming.
We yearn for a fairy tale life, but too often our existence feels less like the pages of a storybook and more like a bad reality TV show. From poisoned apples (mistakes) and ugly stepsisters (joy-stealers) to magic mirrors (finding real beauty) and glass slippers (God’s perfect calling for us), the truth is that we can live the perfect story—the happily ever after--that the Author has written for our lives, now, regardless of our circumstances!
Through fairy tales and biblical insight, encouragement, challenges, and a little humor, Ginger shows us how to live and love our stories in the here and now.
