Veronica | 2 comments Title: Lindsay’s Gift: Faith Learnings from a Girl with No Words
Author: James F. McIntire
ISBN: 978-1-7345515-0-1
Publisher: Just Words Publishing
Publication Date: 2020
Format: Print
Description: “It would be a mistake to think that Lindsey‘s Gift is just about disability. It is about disability, but first and foremost it is a book about love. It’s about the love of a father for his daughter who, although she will never call him “dad,” has nonetheless profoundly impacted upon her dad’s life in ways that transcend words. It is a book about love, but it is also a book about presence. Lindsey’s unique presence in the world reveals something deep about the spirituality of human relationships and the power of just being. By simply being in the world Lindsay makes visible the modern light that we are valued through what we do.” (From the back cover of the book). “Published in April 2020, Lindsay's Gift shares moments of Lindsay's life journey as told by her dad, James F. McIntire. Lindsay’s quiet presence in life, in faith communities, in chance encounters, and in society has made a difference and will continue to do so. The words in the book are not Lindsay’s since she has none, but by her presence she has impacted everyone and everything around her.” (from the book webpage)
