After having her daughter, Tracy thought her second pregnancy would be easier, but God had other plans for her and her family. The first sign that things would be different was the abnormal results of her first-trimester screening. Luckily, they were ruled out as possible false readings. Tracy did her best to balance her pregnancy and work until the birth of her son, Bryce. Unfortunately, her son was born with a congenital heart condition that would change her family’s life forever. The author felt guilty, but over time, God healed her soul and helped her discover His purpose for her life. In Prayerful Warrior Mom, Tracy A. Ripley narrates how her family's turbulent journey made them stronger mentally and spiritually. She shares the lessons that helped her cope with her son's illness in her career, social and family life, and relationship with God.
Prayerful Warrior Mom made me wonder how many tragedies a person can take before they break, and how believing in God's word and continuously seeking Him in prayer can give the peace that surpasses human understanding. Tracy A. Ripley uses a calm and engaging tone, which showcases her spiritual maturity and peace with the tragedies that befell her family. Whenever she was on the verge of breaking, God gave her a verse, a song, or a revelation that helped her through. The book has beautiful designs that make it appealing to read and profound lessons that can be applied in different areas of your life. I loved reading this book and I think both believers and non-believers can read it and appreciate its message. We all go through trying moments, and a story like this can give us encouraging lessons. Get a copy of this book to read this inspiring story of a prayerful mother, a brave son, a supportive family, and the amazing power of God in their lives.
