Publisher's Summary

Kate Merrick examines the Bible's gritty stories of resilient women as well as her own experience of losing a child - a journey followed by more than a million people on prayfordaisy.com - to reveal the reality of surprising joy and deep hope even in the midst of heartache.
Kate Merrick faced the crippling grief that life can bring when her five-year-old daughter was diagnosed with cancer. Three and a half years of suffering followed, accompanied by fervent prayer, hospital stays, emotional agony, and teeth-grinding fear. And in the end, her baby girl was gone.
How was Kate to believe again, to hope again? To find out, she turned to stories in the Bible of real women who dealt with pain and survived. How did Sarah, after 25 years of achingly empty arms, learn in the end to laugh without bitterness? How did Bathsheba, defiled by the king who then had her husband killed, come to walk in strength and dignity, to smile without fear of the future?
In And Still She Laughs, Merrick writes poignantly and transparently about finding joy in sorrow and shows how we - just like the ordinary women seen in the Bible - can rise above unbearable circumstances and live fully. In the middle of whatever hardships we face, we can smile, cry, and come away full - laughing without fear and eagerly looking for what is to come.

Great book

This is a wonderful read. You will need tissues. I laughed and cried. Even if you know the Bible front to back it’s good to be reminded of Gods place in your life. If it matters to you it matters to God. I listened to the entire book in one sitting. Will probably listen to this book again.

So good. I'll be listening again.

This book was beautifully illustrated. The way the author writes is so real and genuine. I listened to this book during a time when our family was going through suffering. It has been nourishing for my soul.
