In Tyndale Momentum’s Blessed, Blessed . . . Blessed, Robertson shares the story of her family’s fight to love hard, stay strong, and keep the faith when life can’t be fixed, releasing on October 6th.
Carol Stream, Ill.—In her new book, Blessed, Blessed . . . Blessed (ISBN: 978-1-4964-0570-8), Missy Robertson shares her family’s inspiring story of overcoming personal adversity when their daughter Mia was born with a cleft lip and palate—a serious condition requiring multiple cranial and facial surgeries. As their baby girl faced a lifetime of being “different,” Missy and her husband, Jase, had to ask: Where is God in all of this? This book tells their story of finding the blessings in life and believing in a good God, even in an uncertain and challenging situation.
For Jase and Missy Robertson, life hasn’t always turned out like they planned. In her new book, Missy Robertson tells their family’s tender and transparent story of finding out that their unborn daughter had cleft lip and palate. She recalls, “I knew that was not good, but I did not realize how that one moment would put me and my family on a journey we had never imagined.” She describes this journey as, “A journey of faith, a journey of prayer, a journey that has sometimes been anxious, stressful, and painful, but one that has strengthened us and taught us lessons we never would have known without it.”
Missy Robertson chronicles her family’s experience with an unexpected diagnosis and challenging medical situation, all in the context of a busy family. Missy shares how she and Jase have made it through the hardest times and encountered God’s protection and love in unexpected ways. She shares how they are raising their kids to be confident and secure in who they are. In the foreword, Jase Robertson shares that “this book is about the dot, dot, dot in the Blessed, Blessed . . . Blessed” title. He continues, “Missy has been an incredible mother during Mia’s journey and has helped me deal with the ‘new normal’ in our family multiple times throughout this difficult process.”
Missy shares that she was motivated to write this book “to help families navigate through their difficulties, rather than having the challenges take charge and rule the family.” She was also motivated to share her family’s story “to encourage people facing any type of trouble in life that there is always hope, that the burden you think you can’t bear is already in God’s hands.”
Throughout her book, Missy details how she and her family are using their experience to minister to others, encouraging people to trust God and have courage when faced with life’s trials. Beyond coming alongside families with children who have been diagnosed with cleft lip and palate, Jase and Missy Robertson felt led to establish a charity dedicated to helping families going through what theirs has faced. The Mia Moo Fund (www.miamoo.org) not only provides education about cleft lip and palate, but also provides practical assistance to children undergoing treatment and to their families, in the form of financial assistance, for bills not fully covered by insurance or parental travel expenses. In her book, Missy Robertson shares, “Because of Mia and her journey, we care deeply about these families and are honored that we are able to help them.”
