Beauty From Ashes

by Justina Page
(Houston TX)

Wow!!!! Thank you so much for sharing your story. I can relate so much...from the severe burns to tragedy to purpose and passion....all of it. On March 7 1999 my husband six sons and myself experienced a horrific house fire that resulted in the death of my 22 month son Amos and severely injuring myself and the other twin Benjamin. All of my sons and husband were injured but not as severely. We loss every possession we had in the blink of an eye. After my emotional and physical recovery I began to volunteer on the burn unit I was on. I went on to become the Volunteer Services President and the burn unit Team Leader. In 2007 I established a nonprofit in memory of my son "The Amos House of Faith" to provide post burn support to children and families affected by burn trauma. I just recently published my first book entitled The Circle of Fire to give hope and inspiration to those who have faced or are facing tragedy. 100% proceeds from this book will benefit The Amos house of Faith. Thanks again for sharing. I pray are paths cross one day soon!

Your comments were so heart-warming Chris! We just received them due to a glitch with our server...I am sorry this took so long! I feel that most of us will be tested by "lemons" in life....and loving friends and family can help us turn them into sweet lemonade! You have made my day by your kind reply! Lots of Bear Hugs to you Chris!!! <3
