Against all odds, the will survive and thrive is indomitable. "Held by God: Finding Hope by Recognizing His Provision in the Midst of Suffering" are the reflects of one woman faced with three rare medical conditions which left her in suffering and seemingly unable to recover in life. But through faith, she endured. "Held by God" is remarkable and uplifting, and a testament to the human spirit in the face of suffering.
