The Grammy, Billboard and Dove Award–winning singer-songwriter Laura Story, known for such hits as “Blessings,” “Indescribable,” and “Mighty to Save,” thought she had her life and everything in it under control…until she and her husband, Martin, had to face a brain tumor, infertility, and a son’s birth defect head on.
In her new book, bible study and CD, I Give Up: The Secret Joy of a Surrendered Life Laura shares her powerful story of finding blessing in her deepest pain by choosing to hand over the control she thought she had to God and instead pursue a life of surrender.
“When we surrender, we invite God into our story as our King, and we take our rightful place in his story as beloved children and heirs,” says Laura. “That kind of surrender is the real secret to joy – joy that is never threatened by circumstances that change day to day. It leads to a life that is ‘adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike, ‘What’s next, Papa?’” (Rom. 8:15–17 The Message). Who wouldn’t release their attempts to control life’s crazy twists and turns to live like a fearless, well-loved child, instead?”Show More
