Joining us today is Laura Smith, author of the inspirational book, In All Things: Giving Thanks When Hope Seems Lost.
Smith was raised on a dairy farm in Northeast Minnesota. She married two weeks after she graduated high school. Four years later, Smith was facing divorce and single parenting. Three years and two children later, she was facing divorce and single parenthood. She moved to a college town in north central MN where she hoped to earn a degree and make a life for her and her two young daughters. There she met and married the love of her life. Together they embarked on a life together as a ready-made family facing all the challenges that comes with it.
Smith shared, "We were looking forward to an amazing life together, another child or two only to be faced with disappointment, loss and heartbreak. Through it, we somehow managed to grow and strengthen our relationship and our faith."
They had no idea the life experiences they walked through early on and one life-altering event would prepare them for the ultimate challenge, the possible death of their daughter. She experienced an incredible journey, which she shares in your currently released book, In All Things: Giving Thanks When Hope Seems Lost.
Originally, Smith did not intend to share her story. She said, "It was so personal and painful, however, when God gave me the vision he did one Sunday during a church worship service and it instantly healed my broken heart, I knew it was big. A few months later, He spoke to my heart saying I needed to get this vision out for other hurting people who have suffered miscarriage or abortion. And that it was not only for women, but men as well, who have been touched by these two events."
