'Bomb Pops, Blow Dryers & Butterfly Kisses: A Journey of Healing, a Story of Hope' By Angelia Waite Review and GIVEAWAY
You Can Buy On AMAZON
One minute, Ramsey was eating a popsicle by the pool. The next, he was . . . gone. In an instant-less than the time it takes to give butterfly kisses-the Waite family was forever changed. Whether you have buried a child; had dreams and hopes stolen; experienced a failed marriage, the foreclosure of a home, a debilitating illness, or any other type of devastating loss; I pray you find answers in this book and that they bring back peace and hope. If you are desperate for answers, reeling from loss, or crushed by your circumstances, know that you are not alone. There is hope. There is always hope.
Summary: On Friday, May 26, 2000, the Waite's youngest son, Ramsey, drowned in their backyard pool at the age of three and a half. What had been a perfect day-indeed a financial miracle had happened just that morning-turned into a family's worst nightmare. As the Waites fought to make sense of the tragedy, Angelia spiraled into a deep depression, further burdened by a life-threatening disease, and by the hurtful words spoken by those in her community. Her family needed room to breathe, to heal. And Angelia needed answers: Why did this happen? Where were you, God? He answered by orchestrating the sale of their home, by sending Angelia on a mission trip where she was healed of her disease, by calling her into ministry, and by strengthening their family bond tenfold. Today the Waites are all thriving, blessed beyond measure-thanks to a loving and merciful God who takes the messes of our lives and turns them into messages of hope.
