What We Learn and Why We Never Forget
Every Christian parent today wrestles with the challenge of how to raise kids in a God-honoring, morally sound way. In ETCHED … UPON MY HEART, Jill Kelly offers up the unforgettable episodes of her life-some sorrowful, others filled with joy-as a “living epistle” to her daughters. For the many other Christian mothers who also long to pass on their hard-won knowledge of God’s steadfast love and healing grace to their children, Kelly’s down-to-earth reflections provide an inspiring example.
As she writes, “God will break our hearts, but He will hold the pieces. He will cradle us and redeem every tear we cry.” Although great personal pain-her young son Hunter’s death, her husband’s infidelity-informs these pages, Kelly’s story is ultimately one of forgiveness, reconciliation, and hope. Through the moments in time that Jill Kelly recounts, readers will recognize the daily reality and eternal value of God’s plan for their own lives.

& love makes beautiful
Whenever Christa Black looked in the mirror, she was waging a war with herself. Her hatred of her face and body drove her, as a young woman, into frantic overachievement, addiction, and an eating disorder that landed her in rehab. A preacher’s kid, she’d grown up imagining God as a “thou shalt not” tyrant. It was only when she miraculously discovered God’s unconditional love for her–physical imperfections, moral failings, and all–that she finally began to accept herself. As she tells her story, Christa shares the tools she uses to combat the self-rejection that harms so many people’s lives.
In this raw testimony, Christa Black takes women on a step-by-step journey of faith and positive belief to reveal that if God loves ugly, then we can too.
