On June 13, 2013 as she drives to work, Tyila Cooks comes to the scene of an accident and quickly learns that the driver of the mangled vehicle is one of her six children, her oldest son. Years later, her oldest daughter’s long term health condition worsens and she finds herself in a fight for her own life.

As this family journeys through two of the biggest storms of their lives, this mother’s faith is stretched and her hope is shaken. With God’s grace, Tyila learns how to face grief, fear, doubt and a host of other emotions head on. Most importantly, she discovers a deeper intimacy in her relationship with God and new levels of strength that she didn’t realize existed.

It is my hope that our story will equip others with the tools they need to walk through their own storms with strength and purpose.

Tyila Cooks
