Tracy Ripley's life is rolling perfectly well and she has found the perfect balance between work and family. Everything changes when her much-expected baby, Bryce, is born with aortic stenosis, a congenital heart disease. Her life is thrown into turmoil, but she refuses to give in to despair. Instead, she changes her plans, establishes a new balance, learns to let go, and develops a more intimate relationship with God. This book brilliantly chronicles her journey through this difficult moment to find surprising answers in God through prayer. In this book, readers will learn to focus on what truly matters, find the courage to seek help, understand the power they have to turn their troubles to God, and a lot, a lot more. 

Prayerful Warrior Mom by Tracy Ripley is a captivating and inspiring book that examines the journey of faith, resilience, and self-discovery. Through her heartfelt narration, Ripley takes readers along on her son's battle with congenital heart disease and her own personal growth as a Prayerful Warrior Mom. The writing in this book is confident and engaging, with Ripley's words reaching straight into the hearts of readers. Her ability to communicate her experiences and emotions in a relatable and authentic way is commendable. The book is filled with personal anecdotes, prayers, inspiring passages from scripture, and lessons learned, making it both a powerful and practical guide for navigating through life's challenges and growing in faith. Ripley beautifully portrays the power of turning to God in times of difficulty and finding solace and comfort in prayer.

The author demonstrates how faith can give us the strength to overcome adversity and set healthy boundaries, empowering readers to embrace their own spiritual journey. Moreover, the book emphasizes the importance of forgiveness and letting go of guilt. Ripley encourages readers to release the shackles of guilt and embrace the liberating power of forgiveness, both for oneself and for others. Through her personal experiences, she illustrates how forgiveness can transform lives and pave the way for healing and growth. This author writes in a way that is fluid and captivating, examining the power of support groups, exploring the healing energy borne by family bonds — and readers will enjoy reading about her relationship with Rob — and providing a message of hope for those going through a difficult time. This is an inspiring book with tools to help readers beat the odds and grow through their faith in God. This book resonated so powerfully with me because I have been in some of the places the author writes about — despair, stress, unexpected outcomes for strongly anticipated events, and more. This book is, indeed, a gift of faith to be shared.
