Megan's Secrets...I read this in one sitting amid tears, laughter and pain.

Review by Nancy

Mike Cope’s daughter, Megan lived to the age of 10. She was mentally disabled but taught all who met her many lessons of faith. Mike and his family loved her dearly and were devastated when she passed. But her passing only confirmed their faith in each other and in God.

Megan’s Secrets is a testimony to that faith and who Megan effected those around her. Family friends, doctors, caregivers and more all learned from her things such as patience, forgiving, friendship and a deep abiding faith that whatever God had in mind for Megan and themselves it would work out as planned.

I read this in one sitting amid tears, laughter and pain. Megan was one of the people many would have ignored, walked away from and never learned what joy was inside. Their loss. Obviously Mike Cope has spent many years pondering Megan’s gifts to others and has given us a great gift in this book. When I was a little girl in Sunday School, my favorite song was “I’m in the Lord’s Army”. It was Megan’s as well and I will never think of that song again the same way. Thanks, Mike.
