Carey Shane McElveen felt an urgency to paint the miracles of the Bible with his children a few months before he died. His courage through crisis and determination to leave a legacy and labor of love demonstrates the evidence of Gods strength and power in his life. Born with heart complications, Shane brushed death several times during his short life of thirty-eight years.
His mother, Donna Nell McAllister McElveen, shares her heartfelt recollection of her husband and son fighting for their lives. The two men that she loved, lived for, and nurtured were buried within three months of each other.
Through it all, she feels an urgency to share the blessings that have been bestowed upon her and the miracles during the brokenness, grief, and heartbreak.
Shanes father, Dr. Carey S. McElveen, pastored Lynchburg Baptist Church, Scranton Baptist, Pageland First Baptist, Manning Baptist, and served as an interim pastor at New Zion Baptist and Pleasant Grove Baptist Church.
