- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 7/10/2015
Isaiah 61:3 spells out the promise that we will receive beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for heaviness. In Anchored:Finding Hope in the Unexpected Kayla Aimee gives testimony to that.
Kayla and her husband were thrilled to learn they were pregnant and looked forward to the birth with all the usual excitement and anticipation. But one day all that joy came crashing down. Their sweet girl Scarlette was born way too soon bringing the storybook tale to a screeching halt. The weeks and months that followed took a toll on her marriage, her pocketbook, and above all her faith.
But God is faithful to His children. Through her infectious sense of humor Kayla brings you her family's journey to wholeness. Her momma's heart will resonate with other mommas whether you have had a similar situation or not.
