I need a book and ebook cover for the book - "Missing Kylie: A Father's Search for Meaning in Tragedy".
This is a memoir of my experience over two years of Kylie's cancer treatment, her death, and then the questioning anyone who experiences this kind of tragedy feels. The book is targeted toward Christians and mostly women as 85% of the people who followed our journey on Facebook and Instagram.
Here is my description of the book:
No. We hear it all the time. We speak it to our children and often have to repeat it for emphasis. We teach “no” as one of God’s three answers when he is asked for something: “Yes”, “No”, or “Wait”. The average believer seems to receive mostly “yes” answers or “no’s” that often make sense when viewed in hindsight years later. But how does a father reconcile a lifelong faith in God when confronted with the word “no” over and over again as it pertains to something as critical as the healing of his youngest child?
This book is a two year journey through that wilderness of no. It contains few answers and many questions, but ultimately a faith that there is a loving God who chose a path we will never understand on this side of heaven.
When Kylie was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma in April of 2014, her father had an ultimate belief that she would be completely healed and become a living testimony to God’s faithfulness and goodness. That is not the story that God wrote. A writer and blogger, Mark began posting about his struggles of heart and faith with a unique ability to mix humor and heartache. His genuine and often raw style seemed to resonate with many hurting people. Upon Kylie’s death in February 2015, he began a journey to find purpose among the ruins heaped on him, his family, and his faith – documenting both progress and set-backs. With many never-before published entries, this book allows you to join him through the struggle, the loss, and the search for meaning, while always: Missing Kylie.
