John Bevan and his young daughter, Lou Lou, try to heal after a tragic accident takes the life of his wife and unborn child. Struggling to understand God's purpose, John erects a small cross on the side of the road where his wife died.

  1. I found the Cross Gardner thought provoking and inspiring as I found the The Christmas Jars that prompted me to do my own jar and share the book with someone else. Now whenever I pass a cross on the side of the road I say a little prayer for the family of the one who lost their life. It is a reminder of something we don't even stop to think about in our day to day travels
