  1. Cindy, you have such a Christmassy looking blog. Thanks so much for reviewing the book. So glad you like it. My heart goes out to you and I pray God comforts you and your family with abundant grace as the holiday draws near (I'd never heard of the cause of your son's death before). If you get a chance, check out my blog today. Posted a very encouraging quote by Charles Spurgeon that really refreshed my heart.

    Merry Christmas, Dan Walsh
