What do you say to a friend who has terminal cancer?
Margaret Terry wondered what she would say to her friend Deb, when Deb was told she had inoperable stage 4 lung cancer. Deb believed that God would give her a miracle, but no one really knew what that miracle would look like. However, instead of sending prayers or home-cooked meals, Margaret sent Deb stories. In the form of dozens of letters over the course of six months, Margaret shared herself in intimate stories from her life that revealed her questions, and her faith. As the months went by, Margaret's letters renewed Deb's hope, as she shared them with friends and family who passed them on to hundreds of people in seven countries. The letters became Deb's miracle by helping to carry her from this life to the next with faith against insurmountable odds.
In Dear Deb, Margaret shares 55 of the letters she wrote to Deb during her last months. As Deb did, you'll find comfort and hope in her stories of loss and renewal, childhood and growth, and faith and miracles. You'll discover how God often answers our prayers in unexpected ways, through the love we have for each other.
