Life is a Gift is a story of a family who struggled to start a family and when they finally did, both daughters had medical issues. This loving couple struggle through all of the ups and downs but way more downs than any parent should ever have to endure. Told from the mom’s point of view, this heartbreaking story shows the true love a family can find in the face of uncertainty when they keep God in the center of everything.

Format: Paperback
Life is definitely a gift. This book made me cry and it made me laugh. It is about a mother that tells her life experience about having multiple miscarriages, having three little precious girls and about what she faces when all three little girls end up having the same genetic disorder. Jenny Miller is amazing for being able to share and write about it all. The happy and sad. She even writes about being upset with God. I can't even imagine how she felt and the pain she endured.

Book Description
Publication Date: September 1, 2011
Jenny counted her newborn's fingers and toes, amazed anew at God's tremendous gift of life-but the gift did not turn out as she hoped. Her precious baby girl, the fulfillment of her childhood dreams, had serious medical problems. As her dreams crumbled around her, Jenny wrestled with the God of her youth-a God she knew only as secure, faithful, and loving. Now her prayers rang hollow, and God seemed unpredictable, confusing, and distant. Didn't He see tears? In this tender and deeply personal story of dashed hopes and broken dreams, Jenny shares in vivid detail her struggle to accept the journey God chose for her journey of faith through which she reluctantly embraced the lessons God had set before her. Through brokenness, she gained peace, comfort, even joy and a far deeper understanding that life-all life-is a gift from God.

A well written and candid assessment of a mother's personal struggle to accept God's sovereignty over her children's health. This book wonderfully demonstrates how the love of Father God reaches down and feels our need of Him! I wept as I felt the emotions conveyed so powerfully through the story of Sierra's passing. This writing has further energized me to continue cultivating a high regard for all human life, "normal" or not. I recommend this book to anyone.

This book introduces you to a family that goes through more than I could ever imagine. But through everything they are facing; the share their love for God and put their lives in his hands. Sure doubt arises, but they remain faithful. EVERYONE needs to read this book, but be sure to have some tissue close by.

I found this book very inspiring to read. As soon as symptoms were mentioned I had a good idea what condition they were dealing with since I have a neighbor who lost a 2 year old a year ago to Yoders Dystonia. Her youngest daughter also has it though not as severe as her older daughter, she also has 2 daughters who did not inherit the condition. I got the Kindle edition and just ordered the print edition to give to my neighbor. Such a terrible thing to go through but the grace with which Jenny and her husband are handling this devastating condition is truly inspiring.

This is an encouraging story of parents raising two disabled children while aways keeping their eyes on God. It reminds you that your problems aren't always as bad as they seem and God will never forsake you even in your darkest times.

The truths Jenny presented in her book were lessons that many can glean from who are in the midst of raising a sick, medically fragile or special needs child. She points us back to the Holy scriptures and to the Lord for our source of comfort, wisdom and strength without discounting how painful the process can be. I am thankful for her willingness to share her story with others.
