ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S):
Michael and Gina Spehn, joined together by the loss of their spouses, co-founded The New Day Foundation for Families, which provides financial, emotional, and spiritual resources for families with children who have lost a parent to cancer. They are privileged to share their story and faith as speakers and as hosts of a weekly talk radio show, Your Family Matters, in Detroit, MI. Michael and Gina, along with their five children, make their home in southeastern Michigan.
This is an emotional and spiritually enlightening read. I was very hesitant about reading this book because it has similar events that have happened in my life. My father passed away three years ago today (12/28/08) from cancer and I could completely relate to Gina’s story as I helped my step mom take care of my dad. Also after my father died my step mom remarried someone who had lost his wife to cancer a couple of months after my dad passed. So reading this book was almost as if someone had taken notes from my life and put them on the pages of this book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Michael’s spiritual cynicism because I can feel the exact same way at times. Michael and Gina did a great job of telling their story. I cried, I laughed, I got angry, but in the end I was happy for them and for myself for reading this book, it awakened the spiritual longing in me that has not been there for a while.Overall this is a wonderful heartwarming, emotional read. I HIGHLY recommend this book to others. It just might renew your Faith, Hope, and Love in all things God!
