MadeforBrave_CoverEFrom the testimony viewed over 100 million times on the internet:
“I am so sorry I have to deliver such awful news.” Shaking his head, the doctor muttered, “You are both so young.”
A young woman in her twenties with a future and a plan for her life comes up against a tragic nightmare when her handsome and otherwise healthy husband is suddenly diagnosed with a rare inoperable cancer. As her husband’s beliefs grow stronger, Alyssa’s dreams evaporate, and her faith slips away when the worst happens.
Experience soul-searing pain and miraculous moments of joy in this poignant true-life account. Journey with Alyssa as she grapples with life and death, faith and unbelief, disappointment and hope in a search for answers that takes her beyond grief to peace and a surprising new love.
Along the way, you’ll find answers to the questions you may be asking in your own life:
  • Where is God when it hurts?
  • Why doesn’t God answer my prayers?
  • Can God make something good come out of bad?
  • Does true love ever strike twice?
Made for Brave is a striking example of how God can create overwhelming good from even the worst of life when we choose to partner with Him.

"Made for Brave" by Alyssa Galios is a book that really had the tears falling but they were both sad and happy tears. I know each person grief is different, but while reading this book I was reminded of what mom's cancer journey was like and I was reliving her last day on earth.  I strongly recommend  reading this book even though the book made me cry.  The hope and the message that the book shares, the hope that we will see our love ones again and that they are with Our Creator, gives the readers hope.  This is proof that beauty can come from ashes if we allow it.

I have watched the videos mentioned in the book yet, But I am going to just as soon and I finish this review. I love that the author was honest and shared her questions about whether God really cared for her.

This book was a reminder that God is always working behind the scenes in our life. I was really shocked that God changed her mind about a friend that she really didn't like when the story started but it is just proof that God can change a person's heart and whole life when we let him.

This book shows that life is full of struggles and heartaches, but that God can make us Brave if we let Him.

I believe every person needs to read this book.

I received a complimentary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

More from Alyssa

Some people come into your life as bright as shooting stars. They zip across your horizon then, all too soon, drop back into the blackness. Though you can no longer see them, you are forever changed by their brilliance. This is just as it was with Nicholas Magnotti. Six beautiful years changed the person I will always be.
Before my strapping, young and handsome 25-year-old husband got sick, I missed a large part of the point of living. I was a workaholic mainly; a worry wort often; and I got really good at playing the comparison game. As such, I spent the first three years of our marriage living in selfish fear. Nick’s presence in my life taught me something I won’t ever forget… It taught me that every single moment counts and that what we do in love for others is the only thing that truly makes a lasting impact. And, eventually, the strong faith he exuded through his trials would cause me to question and rebuild my own faith.
The day that I said yes to a blind date with a gorgeous man I had never met… the God of the universe set into motion a series of miraculous events that I couldn’t have possibly ever predicted. He didn’t cause the bad parts of my story. Not at all. But, He saw those parts, from way off in the distance and game-planned so that it would all still work together for good and for His glory. You’ll be amazed at all the good He was able to create. And, the craziest part? He is so not finished yet.
Made for Brave: A Journey Through Devastating Loss to Infinite Hope is an uncommon love story and, at times, a harrowing journey but, more than that, it’s my true life journey that I know I have been called to share. I hope you will walk it with me and come away knowing you have always been made for brave, too.
