Eagerly awaited by his parents and sister, baby Kory arrived chubby and perfect, with golden-red curls. But eventually it became clear that Kory's chest was sinking, and by the time he was seven, a significant cavity appeared where his breastbone was being pushed toward his backbone. When a doctor proposed surgery that would allow her son to do very little for at least a year, Peggy was devastated. Thus began an emotional and spiritual journey that has tested her in ways she never would have dreamed of as she and her family adjusted to the fact that Kory had a degenerative condition called Ehler-Danlos syndrome.
Ponderings of a Mother's Heart is a mother's story of learning to surrender her son to God. Tormented with worry and what-ifs as Kory struggled with pain over the years, she was brought to her knees, crying out to the Lord. It was then that Peggy realized that she had to trust God not once and for all, but again and again. She also learned about the real power of prayer and how God uses a mother's heart to reflect his love for us.
Whether or not you're a parent, you can be touched and inspired not only by Peggy's story but by Kory's brave, lighthearted spirit. The little boy whose ambition was to be "a man of God" is now a college student and accomplished musician-and his mother knows a peace and love that comes from realizing that God's blessings come in countless unexpected forms.
