Happy Release Day — The Bucket List Journey Home

11 Jul

Happy release day to Amy Smith Hobbs. I know it must be a bittersweet day as The Bucket List Journey Home details the Amy’s experience of walking with her mother through pancreatic cancer. Find out more about this faith-building book below.

When Amy’s mother created her final bucket list, no one could have guessed how much healing it would bring. Sometimes, the greatest miracles happen in the most unexpected ways, and God shows His faithfulness even as life nears its end.

Amy S. Hobbs was a successful attorney in her home state of Georgia when her mother received a surprising diagnosis: stage IV pancreatic cancer, with six weeks to live. After leaving her job and bringing her mother into her home to start hospice care, the family was left with a simple question: What’s the next best step?

While deciding how best to live out the remainder of her life, Amy’s mother came up with a bucket list of all the things she desired to do. With sixty-nine items on her list, Amy’s mother and her family set out on a season of life-giving adventures.

Family and friends rallied together. Forgiveness was extended, and broken relationships restored. And Amy’s family found the courage and strength in Christ to face the inevitable with grace and joy.

This memoir is a sweet reminder of God’s goodness and unconditional love, and it is the perfect gift for anyone facing grief, loss, or terminal illness with their loved ones. Filled with powerful stories and heart-healing metaphors, The Bucket List Journey Home is a testament of God’s tremendous faithfulness in seasons of trial-from the support of Amy’s family and friends to the unwavering faith and courage of a woman who loved Jesus with all her heart.

Amy S. Hobbs is a Georgia native and attorney who was raised in the small town of Vidalia, but currently resides in Cumming with her husband and three children—who are her greatest joys. She is a proud alum of the University of Georgia and a small group women’s ministry leader at Browns Bridge Church. Amy now writes to tell her mother’s story—one of unwavering faith and courage to live life to the fullest. You can often find her at UGA football events, gardening, spending time on the lake, or on her front porch swing with family and friends.
