Loving Floyd – a Story of Hurt and Hope

You know when a friend does something really amazing and you just want to scream “I KNOW HER! I KNOW HER!” to ride on the coattails of their success a little?

That’s what I’m about to do.

Chantelle Pitt is a friend of mine and she’s also a newly published author. The hard story of her son Floyd’s short life and the profound journey God has taken this family on is now a book with real pages, chapters and even some photos!

The book is titled ‘Loving Floyd’ (Ark House Press) and here’s the blurb:

“Is it possible to experience unimaginable pain and loss and still want to talk to God? Is it possible to come to a place of surrender and acceptance regardless of the outcome? Is it possible to learn so much about God, yourself and others through the grief of the most precious gift now gone?

LOVING FLOYD is the remarkable story of one couple who fought to the end to save the life of their unborn son. Relying on her raw faith, prayers and desperation Chantelle Pitt unashamedly admits her struggles to understand God’s story and how Floyd was part of it – for only one day.

Without speaking a single word, Floyd reminds us that thankfulness, faith and total dependence on God transform our lives from the ordinary to the extraordinary; from the mundane to the divine; from the daily to the eternal.”

No doubt you’ll want your own copy now, so head over to Chantelle’s website where you can order it, delivered to your door >>> chantellepitt.com.au

Finally, I want to say congratulations to my dear friend Chantelle who has persevered in turning something as soul-crippling as losing a child into an opportunity to honour God.
