LAKE MARY, Fla., Nov. 1, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- From a combined birth defect so rare only 50 other cases exist in the world, Christian Buchanan was born without eyes. Now, in her new book, Through the Eyes of Hope, Christian's mom, Lacey Buchanan, tells the gripping story of how God helped two parents see the worst circumstances radiate with glory.

"When we choose to love others despite their differences, we glorify God in His creation," Lacey says. "Instead of hearing people say, 'I'm sorry,' as if Christian had died, I want to hear, 'Congratulations! Christian is learning to survive and thrive in this world.'"

Married to her childhood sweetheart at 21, and pregnant at 23, Lacey was a joyful expectant mom. Working in rural Tennessee, she also was about to start her first year of law school in Nashville.

Then Christian arrived, diagnosed with Tessier cleft lip and palate, a syndrome in which a baby's skull fails to knit together in the womb. Most visible were his severely cleft palate and missing eyes.

For his first four weeks, Christian's parents visited him in the neonatal intensive care unit. When he finally came home, all life intensified. Work, school, care for a severely challenged son, and a labyrinth of medical and insurance complexities also strained Lacey and Chris' marriage.

Meanwhile the Buchanans fielded remarks from well-meaning but uninformed friends, rudeness from strangers, and the vile comments of Internet trolls on Lacey's Facebook page.

The low point, as Lacey relates in Through the Eyes of Hope, was a woman's post: "You are selfish for letting him live just so you could have a baby. You are a pathetic excuse for a mother. He will have a miserable life."

On the contrary. Doctors worked wonders on Christian's cleft palate, and today he thrives at the Tennessee School for the Blind. Christian is a joy to his parents and inspires the millions around the world who follow his story.

"The most crippling disease is ignorance," Lacey says. "One day when Christian is old enough, I'll say to him, 'I loved you too much to give up on you. I love you too much now to give up on you. You are an amazing person who God chose to be my son, and I am thankful.'"

Through the Eyes of Hope is the arduous but uplifting journey of Lacey, Chris, and Christian-the years of medical procedures, battles with an often-indifferent health system, unexpected kindness and help, a viral video with six million views, a healed marriage, and most of all the unfailing love of parents for their child and God for His children.

"God doesn't guarantee a trouble-free life or a stress-free marriage," Lacey says. "But our experience has taught us that when life takes a dramatic turn, He is unchanging, even in the worst of circumstances."

From Charisma House publishers Through the Eyes of Hope debuts January 10, 2017.

Lake Mary, FL — As a viral poet known worldwide for several videos totaling over 30 million views, Savanna

Hartman has authored her first book, Fierce Hope (October 11, 2016), to high anticipation with Charisma House.

 

With an authenticity that has captured hearts around the world, Hartman’s viral spoken-word videos on Facebook

and YouTube have garnered millions of views. Subsequently she has appeared on various national news outlets

including CNN, Washington Post, Huffington Post, CBS News, and National Public Radio, among others. As a rising

voice of hope in her generation, she now takes her message to print.

In her new book, Fierce Hope, Hartman captures the essence of her viral video platform by addressing a world that

has never been more broken and lost than it is today. Maintaining the bold, passionate voice and spoken-word

reflections appreciated by her thriving social media audience, she addresses topics such as finding hope in the

midst of:

·         Prejudice

·         Slavery

·         Terrorism

·         War

“This book isn’t going to have all the answers,” Hartman says. “But I will tell you one thing: this book is full of hope.

It is possible to find hope in the hardest situations imaginable.”

Fierce Hope offers a compelling alternative to the negative perceptions many have about the message of Christ.

Hartman continues, “My prayer is that once you finish this book, you will not only have found fierce hope of your

own, just as I did, but also that you will feel comfortable and sure enough in that hope to carry it into the lives of

hurting people all over the world.”

Kansas City, MO — Thousands have already joined the fast-growing prayer movement with IHOPKC founder Mike Bickle, in partnership with Charisma House, to embark on a life-changing 30-day encounter with God to establish a genuine, consistent prayer life.

The Growing in Prayer 30-Day Challenge comes at a time when so many feel compelled to unite in prayer as the world continues to grapple with terrorist attacks, mass shootings, and tragedies.

“There is no better time in our world for a deeply impactful prayer challenge and call to intimacy with God than right now,” said Steve Strang, founder and CEO of Charisma Media, publisher of Bickle’s Growing in Prayer.

The 30-day prayer challenge, found at growinprayer.com, inspires participants through free downloadable resources each week such as an eBook, teachings, videos, and challenges from Bickle.

“My aim is to help people establish a consistent lifestyle of prayer,” Bickle says. “First, to give practical instruction on what to do to develop a life of prayer; second, to give a biblical understanding of different types of prayer and the principles associated with them.  But ultimately it’s an effort to help people connect with God in a sustainable, authentic, and intimate way.”

As author of the powerful book Growing in Prayer, Bickle understands that it can sometimes be difficult to talk to God. With this in mind, the challenge resources provide practical strategies that anyone can learn, such as establishing set times for prayer and developing effective prayer lists.

“Over his thirty years in ministry Mike Bickle has learned how to effectively communicate with God. To learn this vital technique from a respected spiritual leader such as he is truly a privilege not worth missing,” Strang added.

Bickle also personally engages participants through social media platforms facebook.com/GrowInPrayer and facebook.com/ihopkc, where prayer challenge highlights can be viewed and shared.

IHOPKC is best known for its prayer room, which has run 24/7 since its 1999 launch with live worship teams and subsequent broadcasts on its website.

Charisma House has published twelve New York Times best sellers, including The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemitah by Jonathan Cahn, and Fasting by Jentezen Franklin.
