Jim & Jill Kelly have quite a story to tell. Together with their children, they are a family infused with joy.

This wasn't always the case. As a football player Jim was regularly away from home. He just wanted to have fun and it wasn't long before he was being unfaithful to his wife. 

Around that same time they had a beautiful son, Hunter. But he was born with a rare disease. It devastated them and Jill really turned to God for hope. Jesus changed her heart and the forgiveness she found for previously ignoring her faith, she shared with her husband and freely forgave him. 

This is a marriage that has survived the storms of life. They asked the Lord to  give them the strength to battle through this situation with their son Hunter and he remained with them for eight years until he went to be with the Lord.

Jill captures their story in her beautiful book Etched Upon My Heart. It will make excellent reading for those who are struggling right now with their marriage.

They also began a foundation to fund research into the disease that claimed their son Hunter. And the proceeds from the sale will go toward the foundation.

I personally heard an interview of this couple and was so deeply impressed I wanted to share this with you. Also, you can look at their website at:
