Publisher's Summary

A child disappears. A foster mother faces an impossible choice. A baby’s future hangs in the balance.

When Deb Moerke and her husband decided to become foster parents, they never imagined how their lives would change. And never did they imagine their worst nightmare coming true: Their five-year-old foster daughter, Hannah, murdered at the hands of her birth mom, Karen.

The Moerkes were overwhelmed with horror and grief. And just when they didn’t think they could bear any more, Deb received a phone call from Karen in prison. Facing a life sentence for Hannah’s murder, she was pregnant. And Karen had an incredible request: Would Deb take her unborn baby in and love it as her own?

How would you respond? Could you show God’s love to someone who had hurt you and taken away everything you held dear?

Murder, Motherhood, and Miraculous Grace is an unbelievable true story of faith, family, and a journey toward seemingly impossible forgiveness. A story that tests the limits of the human heart, it’s ultimately a beautiful, life-affirming testament to how unconditional love and relentless obedience can transform even the darkest of nights into mornings of hope.

I felt like I was in church listening to a service! Everything seems to have something to do with god in this book!

Not my style

This book should be under religious/spirituality! The story would be interesting, however, it was more about church, And god than anything else! I couldn’t handle the constant preaching and quoting scripture.

Powerful

This book is a powerful read of love and forgiveness. It tells the story of Debra, who is faced with unfathomable pain and, despite judgment and loss of her own reputation, chose forgiveness. I love that it is a true story from the town of Casper, WY... I was born there and have a lot of family still there. The places she describes are familiar. Kudos to this author and her family!

A Must Read!!!

This true story about murder, motherhood and miraculous grace changed my life and touched my heart. Thank you Debra for writing this story and sharing it with the world. I pray that it touches many lives and that those who read it will see Christ's love in it, and that it will stir their souls to look toward Him.

Really enjoyed this book. Though heartbreaking at times, it spoke to the transforming power of God in a believer’s life, and of God’s ability to use one obedient to Him.

Debra Moerke’s amazing book reflects the heart of God to help and people through the challenges and joys of life.

Although the narrator performed the reading well, it was distracting that Debra’s last name was mispronounced throughout the book. Would it be possible to edit this error with a voice over recording? Murder, Motherhood, and Miraculous Grace is an incredible, life-changing story of walking through heartbreaking circumstances with the strength, forgiveness and grace of God.

One of the Best

She is an amazing woman of God. Truly a story of loss, betrayal and staying the course for the Lord; love and joy abound from the first word to the last. Whether one believes or not, we all would be better humans by following her lead, which is straight from the Bible. The narrator nails her meanings all the way. Don’t let this book go by.

Inspiring

Beautifully written, only with God's love and grace could this be possible. I can't imagine the pain this family has endured, but such an inspiration to love more, forgive the people that hurt us, and trust that God has a plan for our lives!

Amazing

This is a story everyone should read regardless of spiritual belief. This story is true and that in itself will speak to one’s heart. Excellent read.
