~ Phil Callaway, Bestselling author and speaker


"Oswald Sanders wrote, 'Sorrow does colour life doesn't it? Yes, but we choose the colours.' You will be uplifted and enriched by the surprising colours this mother has chosen out of unfathomable grief and loss. Ben's life is producing eternal ripples."

~ Moira Brown, speaker and host of 100 Huntley Street



"Lisa has put her heart out there vulnerable and exposed but still beating with hope for all of us to see every murmur, and shudder, and wince; even times of soaring in the bleakest moments."

~ Hilary Price, Author, speaker, and Bible teacher


"A moving and inspirational account of one family's heart-wrenching journey. Lisa Elliott bares her soul as she invites us into the tragedy that shook her world and started a miraculous ripple effect. This book is so many things: it's a raw and poignant human diary, it's a practical guide to dealing with the realities of terminal illness and most of all it is a powerful testimony of the magnitude of God's grace. This story is sure to bring tears to your eyes as you reflect on the preciousness of family life and love."

~ Ali Matthews, singer-songwriter and recording artist, Winner of 13 GMA Covenant Awards
