Please, God, Let Them be Amazing is the true story of one ordinary family and two extraordinary miracles. It is an example of how God works miracles through the strengths and talents of his greatest creations-people.
Kyle Ervin, by all accounts, was a happy man with a wife he adored, three great kids, and one on the way. He wrote humorous and newsy Christmas letters to family and friends each year that expressed his profound gratitude for the fullness of love in his life. But weeks before Christmas in 2009, FEAR took center stage in Kyle Ervin’s life. After a fragile and frightening pregnancy, Anthony Ervin was born a month premature via emergency C-section. He weighed only two pounds twelve ounces. As the newborn struggled for life in the neonatal intensive care unit, Kyle’s wife Brynn suffered a massive pulmonary embolism. Kyle, there at the hospital when the blood clot stopped his wife’s heart did the only thing he could – He prayed. Knowing his wife’s only chance for survival were the men and women in scrubs that responded to the emergency, he said the only prayer that made sense to him at the time: Please, God, Let them do their finest work. Please, God, Let them be amazing. Kyle Ervin’s story of struggle and pain, with FEAR as his companion, takes him one step at a time through the valley of the shadow of death. Please, God, Let Them Be Amazing demonstrates how God works miracles through the talents and strengths of many different people, and how, with the help of many, a family survived its darkest moment.
