Suitcases from Heaven: A Mother's Journey of Hope Through Her Daughter-in-Law's Cancer

Cindy Seaton Henson

"Jazmin came fluttering into our home, speaking of healing and miracles. I didn't know how to tell her I didn't believe in that nonsense."

Cindy Henson had jumped on a miracle train twenty-five years earlier, believing God was going to heal her young son of severe autism, and quickly jumped off with a suitcase full of bitterness. God had healed the bitterness, but she still didn't believe in miracles.

From day one, soon-to-be daughter-in-law, Jazmin, who had been diagnosed with terminal adrenal cancer, declares she is holding out on a miracle from God.

Cindy wonders if she has the fortitude to endure a life of believing in miracles and makes it her mission to help Jazmin accept that she is dying and the possibility of receiving no miracle at all.

Then God invites Cindy to take out her hope-suitcase, pack up her mourning, and help Jazmin live the rest of her life believing in miracles. Through fundraisers, prayer chains, long hospital stays, and deep conversations about faith, Cindy learns from Jazmin that the best way to live a fragile life is with hope and belief that miracles still happen every day.


Suitcases from Heaven: A Mother's Hope Journey through Her Daughter-in-Law's Cancer helps caregivers and cancer victims understand that God knows the number of their days, and their life is not in the hands of the medical community but in His loving hands.
