About the Author
Angie Smith is the wife of Todd Smith (lead singer of Dove Award winning group Selah) and author of the popular blog entitled Bring the Rain. She holds a Master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University and lives with her husband and daughters in Nashville, Tennessee.
More About the Author
Angie's blog, Bring the Rain, (www.angiesmithonline.com) started as simply that - a way to share her heart honestly and to have the gift of listening to those who had experienced similar loss, but truthfully, not all that much has changed along the way. Angie now writes books and Bible studies and teaches around the country, but the heart of all of those ministries is the same as it was when her fingers typed the very first words on her blog: Angie greatest passion is to make the Bible feel accessible and relevant, and to share her own ups and downs along the way to encourage others in their faith.
Angie holds a Master's Degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University and is a best-selling author of multiple adult and children's books. She and Todd (and their house full of daughters) live in Nashville, TN, but hopes her path crosses yours somewhere out in the great big world.

One thing I really wondered about when ordering the book was whether or not it would be different than her blog. So, I will attempt to answer that for others wondering. The answer is yes, and no. It's not insofar as Audrey's life was very short, and Angie has blogged about it openly and comprehensively, so at some point, there's only so many ways you can tell the same story. So for anyone who has read her blog, there will be a familiarity about the book in both the details of the story and Angie's uniquely sensitive, poignant, and poetic style of writing.
However, there's a depth that comes in the book that I don't think is reached on the blog. By spending the entire book on essentially one topic, she takes you farther into her journey and their thoughts and broken hearts than is possible in any single post on her blog. While most of the details shared are not new (though a few are), but there is a cohesiveness and complexity that is new. Rather than getting bits of the story, one post or page at a time, you can weep with her through the entire journey at once.
The story is gripping anyway, but Angie's writing is artistically, beautiful. It is so intimate and delicate, that you really feel like you're sitting in the waiting room with her, wanting to yell at the lady in Target with her, standing at Audrey's funeral with her, ministering to other women with her, listening to her sweet girls with her, crying your heart out to God with her. The book is breathtaking and challenging.
While never preachy, the book is incredibly instructive on grief and fear and expectations and surrender to the Lord.Read more ›
I am so honored to have gotten to know sweet Audrey through her book.
"In that moment the Lord took her from our arms into His. Right before our eyes, she passed from this world to the next, and all she had ever known was love." (p. 87)
I am so proud of you Angie. So proud of the woman you have become, so proud of your strength.
If you have a friend or a family member who has lost an infant or been given a fatal prenatal diagnosis then you MUST buy them this book and buy a copy for yourself too so you can understand what they are going through.
I can't say enough good things about this book and the scripture that she uses to accompany it.
What I love about this book is its simplicity in telling the story of Audrey, and how God has used her to minister to others. Angie's words hit home -- they aren't over the top, and they don't seem like they're trying to force you to believe what she believes. I'm not super religious, but her words are so gentle that you feel peace as you read, and you want to know Angie's peace as well. I'm so glad I got to know Audrey through this book. Thank you, Angie, for sharing her, and what she has meant.
