Summary: Within a short period of time, Mitch Schultz received two immense blows. Both his wife, Elaine, and their twelve-year-old son, Travis, were diagnosed with brain tumors. After undergoing very serious operations, Elaine lives, Travis, however, dies.
The suffering that the Schultzes experienced could cause one to conclude that God doesn't care about what happens in their lives. In Fires of Sorrow, Mitch Schultz describes openly and honestly how he and his family members were drawn closer to God. He pictures God as a loving, caring God who is involved in our suffering. As a result, they were not weakened but rather were strengthened by their experiences.
