Their odds were 100,000 to one.

Her faith was 1 in a million.

In The Gift of Love, bestselling fiction author Amy Clipston shares her story of almost losing the love of her life to kidney disease and the ultimate sacrifice that kept their family together. An ordinary woman who cherishes family above all else, Amy was challenged in every way-from her strength of character to the depths of her faith to the close-knit family that surrounds her. Enduring the good, the bad, and the really bad, she was determined to help her husband once again be the husband and father their family needed.

Amy’s story will give hope and encouragement to anyone who finds themselves waiting on God. Staring down adversity, Amy and her family received the most important gift of all, the gift of love. And regardless of your situation, this gift can be yours too.

An inspirational story of strength and determination, The Gift of Love is the triumph of one woman’s faith against all odds, and a soul-filling reminder that no matter how hard life gets, it is worth fighting for.

    Incredibly inspiring story - great for anyone dealing with a life-threatening illness (or that of a family member) or anyone interested in the specifics of kidney donation. Amy explains in very understandable detail and language how the process works, and the physical and emotional toll it takes on those affected. Thanks for sharing such a personal story, and offering encouragement to others facing the same challenge!

    The Gift of Love is a biography/memoir that takes you into the life of Amy Clipston from her family's history to helping save her husband's life through the paired kidney exchange program. From her struggle to overcome a miscarriage to her struggle with being her husband's caregiver. Amy's husband, Joe, was diagnosed with membranous glomerulopathy, which often progresses to renal failure. Joe desperately needed a kidney transplant and once Amy found out about the paired kidney exchange program she was determined to help save Joe by donating one of her kidneys to someone else in need. Amy really digs deep to share her emotional struggles and the toll Joe's kidney disease had on their entire family. Raising two kids, taking care of Joe and her father's failing health was very stressful and a constant battle for Amy. I could really feel her frustration at the disease and her emotional turmoil. Between working to pay the bills and worrying that Joe wouldn't receive a kidney was a strain on Amy, both physically and mentally. I love that she turned to God and trusted in Him to make sure everything was taken care of. She displayed a strong faith during their darkest hours and I find that to be uplifting and encouraging. It gave me the hope that if they can go through this horrible struggle and come out better than they were before, then, so can I. Amy also talks about her writing career and how difficult it was to get established as an author. I really enjoyed delving into Amy's life and sharing in her daily highs and lows. Anyone that has ever suffered from a serious disease, not just membranous glomerulopathy, will enjoy reading this book. It lets you know you're not alone. I also think it will prove helpful for anyone with kidney disease or issues as far as the medical treatment and aspect goes. You can definitely learn about some things you might no have previously known. I highly recommend this book!Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review.
