Amazing Abby - A Story of Living Out God's Plan
by Sandi Queen with Abby Smith
Illustrations by Savannah O’Dell
“As long as He gives me breath, I want to be shining brightly for Him and helping those who are hurting to experience the love He has for them. This is the one life I get to live. The only thing that matters is how I live it to glorify my Creator, Savior, and King, Jesus Christ.” – Abby Smith
Abigail Smith was born an answer to prayer, lived an amazing life as aphotographer, world traveler, daughter, only sister to four brothers, and most importantly, a follower of Christ. Completely unexpectedly, at twenty three years old, the Lord blessed Abby with what would become a world–wide ministry, and a part of her legacy.
This is the true story of how one young lady learned to lean on Christ during the most difficult trials of life, and to find Him able and willing to uphold her in the palm of His hand, walk with her through the valleys, and help her to see the purpose He sees through suffering. Abby’s story will inspire anyone going through trial to realize that though we may only see suffering, God has a plan for each of our lives. Abby found purpose through her suffering. Of this time in her life, she said, “If I would have only taken it one day at a time, one hour, only one minute at a time, and put my complete trust in Christ. That is what I have learned to do and am learning to do each day.”
There’s a lesson to be learned here for each of us, through the testimony and life story of Abby Smith.
****This book is for all ages, but the content may be difficult for some children to handle, this would be a great read aloud and discussion book.
