Victory can come through tragedies when we lean on the strength of Jesus Christ and each other. The Smile from The Other Side offers practical help and hope for parents who find themselves traveling the uncertain path of caring for a terminally ill child. Each chapter begins with a portion of the author's personal story and ends with a self-help section of resources and Scriptures. The gripping account of what Lynette Norton and her teenage daughter Melissa endured, and how they got to The Other Side, will inspire and encourage you to hold fast to the persistence and faith that life-and-death situations require. Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12 NIV) "Lynette sensitively shares a difficult part of her life to bring faith, hope, and love to others who are in need. Her caring attitude is a healing balm to grieving people who have a terminally ill child or have lost a loved one." Mike Goodman, Elder First Baptist Church, Paso Robles, CA "Lynette has shared her heart and soul through the recounting of her daughter's tragic battle with cancer. I doubt any reader will get through this book with a dry eye. However, the helpful and practical advice Lynette offers to those suffering through the sickness or loss of a loved one shows the growth process that God has taken her through and the healing He has done in her life. This story is sure to offer hope to those who are struggling."
