Krista thought her two-year-old daughter, Elora, was sick with the flu until an unexpected seizure left the child unresponsive. After a panic-filled drive to the emergency room, doctors discovered a hidden condition that left Krista begging God for a miracle for her little girl.

Over the next thirty hours, Elora fought for her life while Krista fought to understand how this hopelessly dark path could possibly be God's will, and when He eventually asked the impossible, if she would find the faith to trust and follow Him.

The burden of fear and grief seemed unbearable, but Krista learned that with God's love and Christ's grace,

there is no such thing.

My Story

Elora was the quiet one.

Maybe that's why I didn't notice the little hints that something might be wrong. She got sick so fast; a grand mall seizure that left her comotose before we made it to the hospital. 

The doctor found a brain tumor, but her fight was over before it began.

By the next morning, my Elora was gone. And I didn't know how I would go on if I had to leave her behind. 

But God did.
