The Faith, Joy and Hope of Kristen Fersovitch
Robert W. Jones
Kristen Fersovitch was a twenty-eight-year-old wife and mother of three boys under four when she was diagnosed with inoperable cancer and given only months to live. Ornament is the inspiring story of Kristen’s faith, joy and hope in the midst of hardship, heartache and loss. The book shares memories and beautiful photos from her home and performances in the Canadian Christmas event—the Edmonton Singing Christmas Tree.
“She was beautiful and real and funny. She challenged us to live the best life we can—in the face of tragedy, in the face of despair. Not by telling us to, but by leading by example.”
—Carrie Doll, CTV
Ornament is a response to the many people who have asked, “How could I have a faith like Kristen’s?” Each chapter features an ornament from the Fersovitch family Christmas tree and an insight into Kristen’s relationship with God, which was characterized by faith in the face of adversity, joy in spite of circumstances, and hope that was rock solid. There is a practical application at the end of each chapter to help you grow in your own faith.
