From being confronted by untimely deaths, war, divorce, and major illness, author Sarah Christy and her sister, Marylee Nunley, have faced an array of challenges throughout their lifetime. In Keep Going, Christy shares those stories and discusses how those experiences didn’t define them. It tells how they were able to rise and embrace opportunities while engaging in the joy of living.
Narrating a story of resilience and faith, this memoir describes how, despite disappointments, tragedies, and challenges, two sisters fueled by the spark and energy of a little boy, created life-affirming ministries. First, Christy’s creation of a camp for children with cystic fibrosis in memory of her son’s long battle with the disease. Second, Nunley’s idea to create a weekend retreat modeled after the cystic fibrosis camp for stroke survivors and their caregivers. It chronicles the formation of a ministry that grew of one weekend retreat in central Illinois to a national nonprofit, serving hundreds of stroke survivors and caregivers.
Told with small-town charm, Keep Going communicates that even though adversity abounds, it can be overcome through love of family and the grace of God.
