As her younger brother battled for life in the ICU, musician Candi Pearson-Shelton and her family sat waiting and praying, struggling to hang on to hope. Rick Pearson died anyway, at age 23. But in those tense ICU days and the painful months and years that followed Rick’s death, the family somehow settled on a mission: to seek out the glory of God shining through the sorrow and to reflect that glory, even if it meant seeing their plans come to ruin. In this fiercely honest yet faithful book, Candi shares the “gentle whispers and hard-learned faith lessons” that came to them along their journey, offering a song of praise to One who, in the midst of tragedy, pain, and confusion, revealed not only His glory, but also beauty, unexpected graces, a hope more grounded in faith, and a shifted perspective that changed nothing…but somehow made all the difference.
