The Book: Etched…Upon My Heart: What We Learn and Why We Never Forget by New York Times best-selling author, Jill Kelly! Wife of NFL legend Jim Kelly, shares deeply personal experiences as a mother trying to make every moment count, against the backdrop of trying circumstances.
Written to encourage parents who want to instill faith in their children, Kelly shares episodes of her life—some happy, some sad—imparting lessons she hopes will help others pass on the gift of God’s love. Jill writes, “There are precious memories waiting to be unearthed in the moments already etched upon your life. I hope that in sharing some of mine, you’ll be willing and brave enough to open up and share yours.”
About the Author: Jill Kelly is the wife of former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly. In September 1997, months after their infant son, Hunter, was diagnosed with a fatal disease called Krabbe Leukodustrophy, Jim and Jill founded the Hunter’s Hope Foundation. As chairman of the board of Hunter’s Hope, Jill helps children suffering from Leukodystrophy, and their families by raising awareness and research funds to fight this devastating disease. She and Jim live in Buffalo, NY, with their two daughters and three dogs. Hunter’s Hope Foundation can be found online at Jill is also the author of Without A Word.

My thoughts? Normally when review items come into my home, they first go to some shelves that I have set up for things, and I get to them as I have time. For some reason, as soon as I opened this book, I began reading it … which turned into over an hour later and I was still sitting in the same spot, totally wrapped up into this book. Jill does a wonderful job of sharing the ups and downs of her life and her family in a totally RAW fashion (which I so commend!) and the reality of it all makes you feel her joy and her pain, and it really makes you realize that we are all human and we are all in this together and that truly only God can get us through some of lives hardest moments. Jill has experienced huge loss and has also had to face enormous amounts of forgiveness and patience, love and understanding … as we all do, but her candid sharing really speaks to your heart and will warm your soul!
