About the Book
Book: Made for Brave
Author: Alyssa Galios
Genre: Christian Memoir, Widowhood, Cancer
Release Date: November, 2019
From the testimony viewed over 100 million times on the internet:
“I am so sorry I have to deliver such awful news.” Shaking his head, the doctor muttered, “You are both so young.”
A young woman in her twenties with a future and a plan for her life comes up against a tragic nightmare when her handsome and otherwise healthy husband is suddenly diagnosed with a rare inoperable cancer. As her husband’s beliefs grow stronger, Alyssa’s dreams evaporate, and her faith slips away when the worst happens.
Experience soul-searing pain and miraculous moments of joy in this poignant true-life account. Journey with Alyssa as she grapples with life and death, faith and unbelief, disappointment and hope in a search for answers that takes her beyond grief to peace and a surprising new love.
Along the way, you’ll find answers to the questions you may be asking in your own life:
- Where is God when it hurts?
- Why doesn’t God answer my prayers?
- Can God make something good come out of bad?
- Does true love ever strike twice?
Made for Brave is a striking example of how God can create overwhelming good from even the worst of life when we choose to partner with Him.

I don’t really know how to start my review of this book. It was such an emotional roller coaster, and I had to put the book down several times because I couldn’t read the pages I was crying so hard. This is a must read book. Alyssa has such a powerful story to share, and I’m blessed that she chose to share it with people. This was such a beautiful testimony of courage, perseverance, and God’s sovereignty. I highly recommend this book to everyone to remind them that we should be faithful and trust God through every situation in our lives.
All opinions are my own. I received a free copy of this book from Redemption Press via Celebrate Lit.
