Desperate Hope by Candi Pearson-Shelton
A fiercely honest yet deeply faithful meditation on the “gentle whispers and hard-learned faith lessons” that follow tragedy—in this case, the death of Candi Pearson-Shelton’s 23-year-old brother to cancer.
As her younger brother battled for life in the ICU, musician Candi Pearson-Shelton and her family sat waiting and praying, clinging to hope. Rick Pearson died anyway, at age 23. But in those tense ICU days and the painful months following Rick’s death, the family found a shared purpose and a new hope: to see God glorified no matter what. This remarkable book chronicles their journey offering a song of praise to One who not only revealed His glory, but also granted a shifted perspective that changed nothing…but somehow made all the difference. Includes the story behind the author’s song, “Glory Revealed.”
