What do you do when everyone around you tells you one thing, but your body and soul tell you another?
In this inspirational, hope-filled memoir, one woman battles the good advice of others versus the God-advice she senses in her spirit.
The life that Angela Burgin had prayed for seemed to be at hand when she finally married her love, Samson Logan, and the couple learned they were expecting their first child. The Queen City couples life started to unravel soon after as her dream of becoming a mother turned into a nightmare.
Angela sought the advice and help of her doctor when she experienced mysterious and unusual symptoms, but the doctor said it was all in her head. In her heart, Angela knew that something terrible could happen to her and her baby.
In Breathe, Angela and Samson share their soul-stirring experience in a beautiful but gut-wrenching account that will give you a glimpse of hope in the darkest of times.

Angelas story will stay with me. Of all of the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother. Learning that women around the world are dying to have this right when they dont have to is unthinkable. Thank you Angela, for sharing your story while reminding us to have faith, and shedding light on this crisis.

I created my blog, Mocha Dad, to be a resource to help men be better dads. Although I didn't grow up with my father, I had a loving mother who nurtured and molded me. Mothers add critical value into the lives of children and are the cornerstone of our society. I am so thankful that Angela and Samson Logan have shared their story. I know that their story will inspire many and make a difference in the lives of families everywhere.
