9780553379914: Baptism By Fire: The True Story of a Mother Who Finds Faith During Her Daughter's Darkest Hour

Written with the high energy and taut focus of an episode of ER and the humor and grace of a master storyteller, this is the riveting true story of a young mother transformed by faith.

Heather Davis and her husband, Lon, are blessed. They have a strong and loving marriage, a terrific four-year-old son, and a gorgeous new baby daughter named Remy. But one day, without warning, something goes terribly wrong. A seizure sends Remy to the emergency room, and from that moment, life as Heather knows it will never be the same--it will be better.

As agonizing days of uncertainty pass, Heather learns a number of powerful lessons. She comes to know the insight, grace, and compassion that strangers can offer; she discovers the depths of strength and courage within herself, her husband, and her son; and she learns what happens within us when we surrender and open ourselves to hope--and the very real and benevolent effects of faith and prayer.
