Sentenced To Live
Sentenced to Live is a vulnerable and transparent account that takes readers on a spiritual journey; it teaches how faith is easy when one’s senses are intact, but when a mother’s greatest fear devastates her existence twice, this remarkable yet unwavering faith is deployed through the desperation to survive. As the author poignantly shares her loss of two children in back-to-back pregnancies, and her third child, although a miracle, is a special needs bundle of love who requires the attention of skilled professionals for her life, the reader becomes Alicia S. Jones as Sentenced to Live entangles them with laughter and tears. The reader is then transformed with the powerful discovery that earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
“We live in a society where
barriers and walls are being torn down
every day to include special needs
individuals nationwide on different levels."
