Publisher's Description

In 2008, Angie Smith and her husband Todd (lead singer of the group Selah) learned through ultrasound that their fourth daughter had conditions making her “incompatible with life.” Advised to terminate the pregnancy, the Smiths chose instead to carry this child and allow room for a miracle. That miracle came the day they met Audrey Caroline and got the chance to love her for the precious two-and-a-half hours she lived on earth.

Upon receiving the original diagnosis, Angie started a blog (Bring the Rain) to keep family and friends informed of their journey. Soon, the site exploded in popularity, connecting with thousands who were either experiencing their own heartbreaking situations or simply curious about how God could carry someone through something so tragic. I Will Carry You tells the powerful story of a parent losing her child, interwoven with the biblical story of Lazarus to help those who mourn to still have hope—to find grace and peace in the sacred dance of grief and joy.

Publisher Description

At the heart of the book is Angie’s story of the loss of Audrey Caroline, her newborn daughter, and the many stories surrounding that event. But interwoven with the story are Angie’s thoughtful reflections of the biblical story of the death and resurrection of Lazarus. In digging deeply in the Lazarus story while she was carrying Audrey Caroline, Angie found the Lazarus story to be a story of terrible brokenness, perceived abandonment, and questioning. It’s a story that gave her permission to feel the depths of her pain. And even better than that, she found that the Lazarus story at its core is a story of a God who loves us fiercely and with purpose in everything. It is a story that leaves us with the desire to give all of ourselves to the Lord, who doesn’t need to make His ways known to us to be trustworthy. It made Angie fall in love with Jesus in a way that death itself could not shake.

I Will Carry You is a safe place of refuge in the wake of loss, narrated by a woman who has been there. Both intimate and biblical, it will have the feeling of sitting down with someone you have always known who can walk you through a beautiful Christ-given example of how to face tragedy. And as one trained in child psychology, Angie also guides readers toward not only their own healing but how to help their children heal during times of the loss of loved ones.

In I Will Carry You, Angie Smith is transparent about a heartbreaking season in her life. Smith receives the news that her precious baby girl, Audrey, won’t survive out of the womb. God uses Smith’s testimony to minister to others who are suffering from loss. Smith captivates her audience by sharing tender memories and being honest with her weaknesses and failures. The book comes with a short DVD testimonial given by Smith and her husband Todd. The book contains prayers, Scripture verses, personal testimonies, pictures, quotes, and some of the author’s past blog and journal entries. Smith frequently references the Gospel story of Lazarus’s death and resurrection to reinforce her thoughts (John 11: 1-43).

Smith does more than just weep for the loss of her child. She uses her master’s degree in developmental psychology to educate parents on how they should explain a child’s death to any siblings dealing with the loss. Smith has three young daughters who suffer along with her and a husband who also grieves. She approaches this subject with delicate hands and grace.

The most moving chapter is fifteen, wherein Smith writes a letter to her daughter Audrey. This intimate conversation prompts tear. Here is a quote from the letter: “He (God) somehow gave us an entire lifetime of memories in such a short time.” I would recommend this book to anyone struggling through loss or grief. You don’t have to be a mother or a parent to appreciate the lessons in this book. Smith’s simple words and sincere heart make this book a powerful text. I highly recommend this book. – Tamara Peachy, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    This was one of the best books I have read in awhile. Angie's openess, vulnerability and faith was inspiring. I'm going through a hard time in my life right now due to infertility, and the hope that Angie had while waiting on God through her trials, made ME feel hopeful in my own trial. I highly recommend this to any woman, or a man whose wife experienced a miscarriage or the loss of a child.

    During the healing process I was just stuck. This book was key to healing and moving on. I still refer to it. I love Angie's words about the Fathers heart and how we need to be completely honest with Him even in pain and anger. Very easy read...highly recommend it! :)
