On August 12, 2008, Lisa Elliott received the phone call that changed her life forever. It was from her husband, David, on his way to the hospital emergency with their 18-year-old son Ben who was subsequently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. After a one year and one week valiant battle, Ben was promoted to his heavenly home. Throughout his life, but even throughout his death, Ben's Christ-like attitude became an inspiration for thousands around the world who followed updates Lisa posted on a Facebook blog entitled, 'Prayer for Benjamin Elliott.' It was appropriately re-titled, 'The Ben Ripple' upon his death. This is not just an ordinary 'journal,' but a victorious and candid 'journey' of one faith-filled mother who sought to use her story for the glory of God through her pain, loss and grief. It provides validation for those dealing with a family crisis, hope and inspiration for those who are grieving losses, and practical help for those desiring to come alongside those needing comfort.
