My Review

I found Clara Penner's story to be incredibly inspirational. She writes about the birth of her son who is soon diagnosed with hemophilia, a chronic illness she faces, as well as the addition of her second child to her family. Clara faces an enormous amount of emotional and physical turmoil with these various illnesses, and this undoubtedly puts a strain on her marriage.

This workbook is a combination of Clara's journey with journaling space (with writing prompts) for readers to look deep within themselves and reflect on their goals as they travel through life. I adore the honesty that Clara has with her children and the persistence to see the love and light among the darkness.
