    This is memoir is one where I wondered how much more Rodriguez could endure and remain faithful to Christ. It is an amazing story of tragedy and miracle.

    Rodriguez had tried to get pregnant with no success. She found she had a condition called polycystic ovary syndrome. She and her husband tried fertility drugs. Nothing. Then surgery. Nothing. Fertility specialists. Still nothing.

    One day her husband had blood in his urine. He had kidney cancer. Surgery and treatment found him declared cancer clear. They had an IVF pregnancy resulting in twins. One miscarried but the other was born a boy.

    But then the cancer returned to her husband. Chemo treatment, then surgery, and then he had a stroke while in rehab. He never recovered and died.

    Rodriguez had a choice to make. She decided to have the remaining eggs implanted. A baby girl was born but soon suffered from meningitis. Scans showed brain damage and the baby girl neared death. And then something surprising happened.

    This is an amazing memoir. It is a true testimony to trusting God in the midst of tragedy. Rodriguez writes in a way that captured my interest to the very end. She is very honest with her feelings as she kept a grasp on her faith. Hers is an encouraging story and I highly recommend it.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through Icon Media. My comments are an independent and honest review.

    From Depths We Rise, by Sarah Rodriguez, takes us on an amazing roller coaster ride as Sarah walks us through her life over a period of several years and how she survived it with God's help and a grain of mustard seed faith.

    The book starts out with Sarah having had a good life growing up, goes to college, and meets the man of her dreams. Up until this point, her life had been pretty uneventful. She was living the dream and serving the Lord with her best friend. It's easy to have faith when everything is going good right? All of that soon becomes challenged as things such as infertility issues, cancer not once, but twice for her husband, and losing almost everything she held dear.

    This story caught me from the first page! The author did a great job of expressing her excitements, her pain, her sadness, her frustration, and her times of great faith and not so great faith. I smiled, laughed, and cried throughout this book as she takes us through her greatest joys and her darkest pain. They always say if you think your cross is hard to bare, look around, someone else's is heavier. This book encouraged my faith as I read at how even in her darkest days, when she had lost so much, she still had faith and trusted that God's will was best and would work for her good. I highly recommend this read! It will touch your heart!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour publishing and have given my honest opinion of this book.

    Whats in a name? This book is about a man of faith named Joel and his baby girl Ellis; both of their names mean Jehovah is God. Joels hope was that as a result of every crisis, others would come to believe in Jehovah. It is also about Joels wife Sarah, mother to Ellis as well as their son Milo. Sarah and Joel Rodriguez believed that the Lords hand was on their family; they never imagined how many and how severe trials could be in their lives. Sarah is a young woman whose life after she married Joel Rodriguez became a roller-coaster ride, from despair to joy, from joy to mourning, from mourning to beauty. She could only have endured through close communion with her Savior and the support of family and close friends. This book may be appreciated by those who are going through severe trials as they may find encouragement. It can also be appreciated by those whose loved ones are going through trials as they may find a way to encourage them. The Lord showed Sarah how to see beauty each time she rose through the ashes of intense pain which speaks volumes for her choice of tenacious faith.

    Sarah met the love of her life, Joel Rodriguez, in NYC in 2004, and they were married just over a year later. They were both Christians and had similar hopes as they grew their marriage. This included their desire for children; the natural step they saw toward that goal was to move to Sarahs home state of Oklahoma. Pregnancy was not something easily obtained by the couple, however, and after various tests, surgery, and medications, they agreed to submit to in vitro fertilization. Before they could begin the IVF process they learned that Joel had cancer, a football-size tumor that engulfed one of his kidneys. Prior to his treatments and surgery, they began IVF procedures so she could have healthy embryos implanted at a better time.

    Each step along the way, God was preparing them for the next crisis. They endured what many couldnt by doing the next right thing, even when their cries were interspersed with screaming, weeping, and asking why. After Joels first surgery, it caused us to cling to the Lord like never beforeHe was Father, He was friend, He was grace, He was strength. He was all we needed (pg. 44) Sarah also shares a tiny bit of hope; even as little faith as I had left, I still had that tiny mustard seed of belief He could do the impossible. (pg. 231)

    The author speaks from her heart with raw vulnerability and authenticity. She doesnt sugarcoat the challenges in their lives, nor does she seek pity. She has determined to tell their story, Joels story to touch millions and for nations to be changed by the story of this manWe will continue to proclaim your story until all will see and truly know how great is our God (pg. 114, 115).

    This very well-written story of the Rodriguez family will inspire and encourage readers, although one might keep a box of tissues nearby. I highly recommend From Depths We Rise to readers and church libraries. Whatever one is going through, this book will ultimately bring hope in the God who brings us beauty from the ashes of our lives.

    With a grateful heart, I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing; as a courtesy, I am posting my honest review. All opinions are my own, and no monetary compensation was received.

    As a survivor of the loss of a loved one to cancer, I cried tears of empathy while reading this honest account from Sarah Rodriguez of her familys struggle with her husbands cancer. I marveled at her faith that he would be healed, which she believed right to the end of his earthly life. What a marvelous testimony that she was willing to undergo IVF with the remaining two fertilized eggs she and her now deceased husband had in storage. She took great comfort from his statement that they would have a daughter and stepped out in faith. Then Sarah shares with the reader the horrific experience every mother dreads: 2 week old Ellis quickly becomes ill with meningitis and Sarah eventually faces the decision of removing her daughter from supportive measures keeping her alive. Her unwavering faith in the face of her daughters declining medical condition was incredible to read about. The miracle which occurs comes at the very darkest time of Sarahs life. Be ready to cry, and yet, be uplifted by this story which Sarah has chosen to share in her book, From Depths We Rise.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review.

    This review is from: From Depths We Rise: A Journey of Beauty from Ashes (Kindle Edition)

    From Depths We Rise by Sarah Rodriguez is a very inspiring book of determination, faith, strength, courage, hope and trust in God.

    it is about journey of Sarah and Joel from beginning of their marriage through the heart break of cancer not once but twice in Joel to his death. And through birth of their son -- Milo --to the birth of their daughter Ellis-- who is born from embryos they had frozen .. A decision Sarah made after Milo telling her before he passed away they would have a daughter .. Sarah also goes though almost losing Ellis also when she is 2 weeks old. This books shows so much strength and courage through so much heartbreak.

    It is full of love, determination, hard decisions and rising above your situations. I could not put this book down once I started reading it. To find out just how much they go through it is a must read for anyone.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
