Description of I Will Carry You by Angie Smith

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. Endorsement "This is a beautiful and tender book that would touch any woman's heart, no matter her age or realm of experience. It is about a relationship so intimate with God that it carves a safe place for crises of faith, for faith proved genuine and for divine callings willed, sealed and fulfilled. Yes, this is one mother's moving story. This one mother also happens to be a true writer. We will hear more from her. Angie, I am so proud of you. May Christ continue to tip the ink jar toward your gifted quill." - Beth Moore

5 StarsBeautiful!
I first learned of Todd and Angie's story when I heard Selah's gorgeous song, "I Will Carry You," written for then-unborn Audrey. I had recently delivered a perfect baby girl, so my heart was extra sensitive to their loss and I grieved for them. I picked up this book to learn a little more about their incredible story, and I am so glad I did. Not only is it a beautiful tribute to sweet Audrey Caroline, who only lived in this world for a few short hours after her birth, but it is also a powerful reminder that each day is a gift, and that Christ our Sustainer will see us through even the most devastating of circumstances. Though I have never experienced the profound loss of a child, I was deeply touched by Angie's insights into life, death, grief, and the restoration that comes through hope in Jesus Christ. Angie is very transparent about the grief and subsequent depression she experienced after the loss of her daughter, but she also paints an encouraging picture of hope - a picture that says, "Hang in there and cling to Jesus, because although you can't imagine it right now, you will enjoy life again." This book would be a powerful tool and source of empathy for anyone working through the loss of a child - whether that child was lost in the womb, in delivery, in childhood, or even in adulthood. Angie's husband also shares at the end of the book how he and his wife grieved very differently, so there is a guy's perspective included for husbands. Todd and Angie Smith are truly an incredible couple and handled their devastating situation with such grace and godliness. I was inspired by this book and highly recommend it!
