30 Days of Hope for Joy Through a Child’s Severe Illness offers hope to people who love a child battling a lifelong illness. Filled with encouraging stories and Scripture passages, parents, family members and friends will find inner strength to persevere and to begin to look for God’s divine purposes in their interactions with others. That is exactly what Ella’s family had—and has—to do. When Ella was born with a painful and severe skin disease known as epidermolysis bullosa (EB), her family struggled to understand and accept the unexpected twist in their lives. Slowly, author and grandmother Gale began to see God revealing that there is hope and joy, and His divine purposes can radiate if you allow Him to shine. Let her heart-touching moments with Ella inspire you to look for God’s divine purposes in your own child’s life and in their interactions with others.
