What happens when a young woman promises God everything and he takes it? With an unquenchable passion to glorify her Savior at nineteen years old, Bethany McClurg was on the cusp of following her dreams into a life of music and ministry. Suddenly diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia just two weeks after resolutely committing to follow God wherever he would lead, she was thrown into a journey that would draw her farther from her own dreams and closer to her God than she ever could have imagined.
In this honest and inspiring account of her battle with a life-threatening disease and its ensuing complications, Bethany stands bravely behind the shield of faith to confront the far more wearisome battles of unbridled fear, despair, and discouragement. The cornerstone of her very existence is altered as the cross becomes her beacon and strength, taking the place of broken dreams and shattered trust. Then like a songbird on wings of grace, she emerges from the valley of the shadow of death, beckoning others to choose to sing of his love once again and forever.
