"Only those who have suffered are truly able to understand the suffering of others. And only those who have experienced God’s grace and healing are capable of sharing it with those who need it most. Wanda and Shelly have written a beautiful, honest, and gut-wrenching book bringing beauty from the ashes of their own personally painful stories." - Kathie Lee Gifford, Cohost of the Today Show
