WASHINGTON DC (PRWEB) December 16, 2015
For 39 years, Sydatu Holder endured the severely painful sickle cell disease. When she was 11, she was inspired by God to write about her experiences living to die with SCD. She died in 2014 but her spiritual journey was preserved through the pages of “THE MORPHER” (published by Xlibris).
In this moving memoir, Holder told of her physical, emotional, and mentally painful experiences, living to die with sickle cell anemia disease. It is a revealing account where she revealed a story of courage, long-suffering and triumph through the love and grace of Jesus Christ, the source of her strength. A mild-mannered, soft-spoken, no-nonsense and determined woman, Holder was dedicated her life to her family and her creative pursuits. She was an outstanding woman of many talents, including painting, drawing, poetry and other creative endeavors. Truly a spiritual soul, she often said, “I know I will die young, therefore I have to pack in as much living as I can in the time I have left.”
This book is also an account of how she came to call her beloved disease the ‘Morpher’ or ‘Morph’ for short. This disease had caused such a metamorphosis in her body, mind and entire overall state.
A testament of her faith and trust in Jesus Christ, the main factor that grounded her and made her triumphant through this whole losing battle, “THE MORPHER” reaffirms her tireless belief in God’s love that exchanges suffering (ashes) for beauty and God’s good plan and purpose for everyone that suffers. She said, “With God, nothing happens by chance or accident.”
