Joy is not circumstantial.
It dwells within the heart and is exhaled in love.
This is the story of Lee McCracken’s faith and self-discovery through motherhood to menopause. At the age of twenty-seven, her dreams of living a harmonious life with her college sweetheart were dashed. Over the next twenty-four years, she learned mommies aren’t always able to kiss boo-boos “all better,” a teenager’s emotional angst and turmoil really take a toll, and breast cancer is surTHRIVEable.
The 52-year-old reveals honestly and openly the raw emotions of anger, hopelessness and self-doubt. Yet, she doesn’t dwell too long in that painful place. She describes how God pursued and soothed her wounded heart, leading her on a path to healing. Cradled in grace and mercy, she moves forward with renewed anticipation and hope.
