On Friday, February 18, 2011, God did the unthinkable in our lives: He chose to take our 12-year-old son, Trent Lee Stellrecht, home to heaven in a skiing accident. It is only considered the unthinkable because our plans are not God's plans, and our ways are not God's ways. Follow along on my journey through the valley of the shadow of death as my Savior, Jesus Christ, leads me.
How My Savior Leads Me is the powerful, moving account of God's faithfulness in what appears to be a tragedy. Terri Stellrecht begins by sharing glimpses from Trent's childhood, and before, that God graciously revealed to prepare her for the day that her son would enter His presence, and the day that her prayers would be answered: prayers that God would save Trent and allow him to dwell in heaven for eternity, and that somehow his life would be used in a mighty way for the glory of God and the gospel going forth.
Can God really be good in accidents? Is He really there? Does He really have a purpose for everything that happens on this earth? Stellrecht explores the promises and truths found in the Bible as she lays out the foundation of her faith and shares the whispers that God has continued to give to encourage her every step of the way through the hard process of grief.
A book that will make you laugh, weep, and rejoice as well as challenge your own belief of this good God. It will ultimately ask you to answer the question: "What if it had been you that died in that skiing accident? Where would you be? Do you know this Savior of mine? His name is Jesus."
