Today I have the privilege of introducing a brand new book, released TODAY: Etched Upon My Heart by Jill Kelly. Jill is a best-selling author and the wife of Jim Kelly, former NFL star and this book is absolutely beautiful. I’m excited to offer this Etched Upon My Heart book review AND giveaway of one copy.
As special needs mom to a child with MPS, a rare neurologically-degenerative disease, I’ve know Jill’s name and am familiar with her wonderful foundation, Hunter’s Hope, which raises awareness and research funds for Krabbe Leukodystrophy.
Etched… Upon My Heart is Jill’s heart speaking about what we learn and why we never forget. Each chapter uses one word to describe the life lesson the author is addressing. While using personal examples from Jill’s own life, the book gives an almost tangible breath to the legacy every parent wants to leave their children. Some of the topics include love, forgiveness, and suffering. I so want my children to nail down certain life lessons without the hard knocks that often accompany them. This precious book is thought-provoking and will cause you to be intentional about the legacy of lessons you want your children to learn. Each chapter concludes with a list of summary statements, a prayer and a list of Bible verses that reiterate the truths discussed in the chapter.
As I watch my Taylor girl undergo the neurological degeneration of her disease, the chapter Jill has written in this book on suffering is one I am sure I will read and read again. One of my favorite quotes from this section:
Because of the cross and all that Jesus accomplished there, my son’s suffering has purpose, meaning, and even hope. And your suffering does too.
I’ve only touched the surface of the depth in this book. Etched…Upon My Heart inspired me to be more purposeful about the lessons I want to instill in the hearts of my children and I hope it will for you too.
