Tuesday's Grace

God is still with us in desperate times. He hears our prayers.

Josh and Sara were stunned when their plans for adoption suddenly turned into possible plans for a funeral. When the baby girl they were going to adopt was diagnosed with a life-threatening birth defect, the adoption process changed from hope to despair. In Tuesday’s Grace: A Modern Day Miracle ($15.99, Paperback, 9781612155890) by Sara M. Howard, readers will walk along with Josh and Sara as they journey through infertility, adoption, hospitalization, trials, blessings, and hope.

This true story captures life’s roller coaster of emotions—from sadness and fear to peace and triumph. It is a story of friends, family, faith, and prayer that will give readers hope and encouragement, and the assurance that God is still performing miracles today.

The message Howard most wants to communicate to her readers is: “God is still with us in desperate times. He hears our prayers. I want this book to help them find the blessings among their trials. I want to give them the courage to look for and pray for their miracles. I want them to have a renewed hope in our God. This story will help others be aware of the trials adoptive families face. Any miracle is newsworthy.”

Sara M. Howard is a registered nurse with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing. She works in dialysis and is a patient educator for those with chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease. She enjoys writing and sharing her amazing story with others. She and her family make their home in the Midwest. For more author information, go to
