Song in the Night: One Family's Journey From Darkness To Dawn
Euthanasia. Life-support. Disability. Most teenagers don’t have to think of these fearsome topics; in fact, for most of us they’re best left as fodder for medical journals and television debates. No one wants to face the possibility of life tethered to a ventilator or the unthinkable alternative: to end that life.
In July of 1997 Kevin was a healthy, 19-year-old musician who took every opportunity to use his talents for God. That summer, a botched back-flip in Canada during a youth ministry tour ended those plans and placed him in the center of a desperate fight for his life.
In her first book, Pam Thorson recounts the true story of her family’s nightmare as they struggled to live out their faith in the face of impossible odds. Song in the Night traces the family’s journey through the events surrounding Kevin’s injury, the fight to keep the doctor from pulling the plug, and God’s divine intervention along the way.
Out from the Shadows: 31 Devotions for the Weary Caregiver
No place is so dark, no shadow so deep, that God can’t find us.
Does the suffering you witness or experience seem pointless? Do you feel like your problems are endless? Do you wonder if God cares about you?
Caregivers live in the daily shadows of death, countless duties, and shattered dreams. But they don’t have to exist in the shadows of their faith.
Nurse and veteran caregiver Pam Thorson offers weary families hope and insights gained from her own struggles. Out from the Shadows is a collection of thirty-one stories that pull back the veil on the unique joys and challenges of caregiving. Each devotion draws from the author’s own experiences to reveal a fresh understanding of Jesus’ call upon our lives as we care for others.
“I heartily recommend this book for anyone and everyone who deals with disability in the family!” ~ Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center
