Jantsen’s Gift by Pam Cope & Aimee Molloy Book Review & Giveaway!

 

Jantsen's Gift Book Cover

 

About the Book:
Nine years ago, Pam Cope owned a cozy hair salon in the tiny town of Neosho, Missouri, and her life revolved around her son's baseball games, her daughter's dance lessons, and family trips to places like Disney World. She had never been out of the country, nor had she any desire to travel far from home. ...

To read more of an expert from the book you can go to Hachette Book Group.

About the Author:
In 2000, Pam Cope founded Touch A Life Foundation by establishing a shelter in Saigon for homeless children. Touch A Life now supports 224 children in Vietnam and helps fund the Place of Rescue in Cambodia, a safe haven for famillies who have been stricken with the AIDS virus. Pam is now working to raise funds to build a center for children in northern Ghana who have been rescued from slavery. Pam lives in Joplin, Missouri with her husband, Randy, and her children, Van and Tatum.

My Thoughts:
I wasn’t sure about this book, but after reading some other really touching books…I decided to give it a try. I was very glad I did. It was a fantastic book. It touched my heart and soul especially being a TRUE STORY. This book makes you want to get out there and do something to help change the world. I can’t imagine going through the pain that Pam went through after unexpectedly losing a child to a heart condition that they never knew he had. Not only what a shock, but how do you recover from that?  However, to triumph and come out on the other side by helping hundreds of kids. Is just amazing and inspiring! A great book to read if you need help to get over your rough patch. This book comes straight from the mom’s heart, and soul. Telling not only the good times after Jantsen’s death but the bad and ugly truth about her struggle. It surely makes you appreciate your family by the end.

Buy it: 
You can go to Barnes and Nobles!  It sells for $17.99 there.

I would probably read the book first, then pass it on to my Mom. We like to read books, sign and date them and then pass it on to someone else.
