Melinda Gordon is an author and a blogger. Never in her wildest dreams did her think a part of her journey would entail the death of a child. If she had known, she surely would never have prayed, “Use me, Lord”…or would she? A powerful story of heartbreak, joy, grief, inspiration, and love, Melinda shares of the many lessons she learned in the short life of her daughter, Hope Abigail “Abby” with a life-changing lesson being: we don’t have to be strong enough, smart enough, or have it all together. We just have to be willing. Willing to follow a God who is. He can take the pieces of our broken selves and put them together to make the most beautiful story. Sometimes this story can only be understood by the deepest part of ourselves. When our spirit is impacted, life changes in a way that cannot be explained. Melinda is a business and life coach in the Houston area and she shares her story with organizations, churches, and in her new book, Love Has Come. She and her husband are founders of Abby’s Gift, a 501c3 dedicated to pediatric hospice and end of life care for children.
