Publisher's Summary

Sometimes we make sacrifices to help us get ahead, to allow us more time with family, or because we believe in the cause. And then there are sacrifices in which we have no say, "Isaac experiences" as in Genesis 22, thrust upon us without warning or survival instructions.

This audiobooks outlines eight transformational power principles that Gene and Carol Kent learned in the process of facing the news that forever changed their lives: Their 25-year-old son, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy with an impeccable military record, shot and killed his wife's ex-husband. Jason Paul Kent, long recognized for his exemplary character, now walks a path no one could have predicted, and his family lives in the aftermath of a devastation most cannot imagine.

Carol's candid retelling of her emotional and spiritual agony will touch your heart. The principles the Kents learned in the process of surviving such unspeakable circumstances will bolster your faith, renew your hope, and challenge you to new levels of personal and spiritual commitment.

    Story
    "Inspiring, Encouraging Truth of Excruciating Circumstances"

    The best stories are the real ones but finding people to share the ones that are tough, especially because of their own mistakes and sin, or those they love is hard. It's not just because people want to hide them it the type of pain and anguish Carol Kent knows deadens and paralyzes many with depression and overwhelmingly more difficult day to day life circumstances that make processing and overcoming them all the more difficult. Carol's honest and raw retelling of her story will resonate with any parent or person who has experienced horrific life altering, dream shattering event that has forever changed them--and do so in a way to not avoid but feel the pain and look to the one who gives hope and joy! You'll be inspired to also lay down that which stands between you and full devotion to God. Thank you Carol!

    "AWEFUL"

    The author lost me when she brought up how a couple were having marital difficulties because the father was continually molesting their daughter. She was saying, "The wife was able to forgive her husband and bring him back into their home"....I'm sorry there are just some things you don't allow back into your home...and that's a child molestor.
