God Always Hears by Kelly GrettlerGod Always Hears touches on the subject of illness, and hospitals, and bravery, and faith, and having a sense of courage and peace through it all.

Let’s face it, hospitals can be scary.  The loss of control over what’s happening around us can be overwhelming at any age.  If we can’t control what we’re facing, we can at least control how we react to, and move through it.

*This book will give the reader a sense of not only what to expect when facing a diagnosis, surgery & recovery, but also a sense of calm as they navigate this unfamiliar journey. 

Kelly Grettler’s peaceful, poetic prose is paired up with Solomea Kalinichenko’s timeless, angelic illustrations and the result is simply stunning.
