Grace for Grant.

A Journey with an Old Soul

“Mom, I think I’ve had a stroke.” Something a parent doesn’t think they’ll ever hear from their child. And when the diagnosis wheel keeps spinning, it’s anybody’s guess where it will land. Follow along on the journey of one child’s life through the humor, sadness, shock and grace that will define a family forever.


Grace for Grant: A Journey with an Old Soul is a heartbreaking yet uplifting chronicle of one family’s five-month sojourn told by Grant’s mother, Jacquie. Her deep love and refusal to give up on her only child had me cheering even through my tears. I laughed, cried, and was inspired by the days of hope, and finally the day of despair she shared with her enormous following. The grace and courage of Grant and Jacquie taught us there is hope and there is life after loss.
