A Good and Perfect Gift

Amy Julia Becker's memoir A Good and Perfect Gift (Bethany House/Baker Publishing Group) relates how the disappointment and fear she and her husband experienced after their daughter, Penny, was born with Down Syndrome were transformed into a new understanding of parental love, God's grace, and strength in weakness. Apostrophe published Ms. Becker's column titled "A Good and Perfect Gift" in the Fall 2010 issue. See Pages 8-9.

Ms. Becker has won a Christopher Award for her book of the same title. Founded by Maryknoll Father James KellerThe Christophers is rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition of service to God and humanity. The ancient Chinese proverb - "It's better to light one candle than to curse the darkness" - guides all its programs.
