Nashville, TN (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
Taylor is the mother of three special needs children, and in her book poses these probing questions: Can our darkest hour invoke miracles? Can the departed intercede on our behalf? Can the most fragile among us instill in us the greatest might and courage? In this true story, she recounts her experience as a young mother who faced the harrowing task of raising her three children (out of her five) with Fragile X syndrome and autism.
The Fragile Face of God begins with an urgent prayer for death-- indeed, the author's darkest hour-- and proceeds through her hellish descent into darkness and, subsequently, her victorious rise back into the redemptive light of love and salvation.
With forthright honesty, Taylor describes her journey-- the frightening episodes with her disabled children, the challenge of her family life, and the utter despair of feeling all alone in the world. For a time, she longs for death as her only reprieve. And though she almost crumbles beneath unbearable demands, Taylor ultimately discovers the power of hope. When her mother's departed soul visits her in her weakest moment, her spirituality is buoyed and she begins to tap into the sublime and mysterious gifts of her children, affirming, in the end, that each of us, in spite of significant disabilities, is unique and sacred and indispensable.
The Fragile Face of God is a celebration of all humanity. And it will reassure any reader, or any one who has ever felt alone or discouraged, that God will never forsake His children and that the human spirit is made unconquerable by the power of love.
LeeAnn Taylor is a writer, speaker, and the mother of five children, three of whom were born with the genetic disorder Fragile X syndrome and autism. She uses writing, filmmaking, artistry, and mentoring as a platform to share the divine light and to teach the eternal nature of humankind.
