Want to read a true story that will touch your heart? Are you ready to maybe shed a few tears? Then this book is for you. Christa is an amazingly talented writer who has the ability to make you feel (in your heart) her journey through the pain and frustration of rheumatoid arthritis. The way she describes her journey makes the reader feel like they’re inside her head. And just when you think her life couldn’t be any more difficult, her beloved father and friend abandons her and her five other siblings and mother. What’s so inspirational about this story is Christa’s exemplary courage, strength, joy, forgiveness, and complete trust in God. I cried when she graduated from high school and so many other kids clapped for her, cheered her on, and told her how much she had inspired them. This book is a must read because it teaches you to be thankful for all the things in life that can easily be taken for granted!
