"A story of God's grace in living fully with cerebral palsy."
Moments of Grace:
Faithfulness When Life Hurts
Unaware of her hidden turmoil, many are impressed with Janae Hofer’s unrelenting drive to open her own law practice despite needing assistance with every physical task because of cerebral palsy—a disability hindering her every movement. But her life is more than physical struggles. It’s also joy and sorrow, laughter and pain, victory, and defeat.
In Moments of Grace, Hofer narrates her story in light of God’s grace. This reflective focus reveals grace in all of life’s moments: God provided her with a loving Christian family and carefully cultivated friendships. Preserving her life despite suicide attempts, God granted her strength to persevere despite continual underestimation by others.
This memoir contrasts Hofer’s hopeless feelings at different moments and her grateful perspective as she now looks back. She encourages readers to embrace life with attitudes of gratitude and humility. She prays God will use her story to point others toward a deeper understanding of His unfailing grace in every moment—past, present, and future.
