Book Review - Fly a Little Higher: How God Answered a Mom's Small Prayer in a Big Way
About the Book
Laura Sobiech tells the amazing story of how God used her son’s battle with cancer to touch the lives of millions.
“Okay, Lord, you can have him. But if he must die, I want it to be for something big. I want someone’s life to be changed forever.”
This is what Laura Sobeich prayed when she found out her seventeen-year-old son had only one year to live. With this desperate prayer, she released her son to God’s will.
At that point, Zach Sobiech was just another teenager battling cancer. When his mother told him to think about writing good-bye letters to family and friends, he decided instead to write songs. One of them, “Clouds,” captured hearts and changed not one life but millions, making him an international sensation.
But Zach’s story is not just about music. It’s a testament to what can happen when you live as if each day might be your last. It’s a story about the human spirit. It’s about how God used a dying boy from a small town in Minnesota to touch the hearts of millions—including top executives in the music industry, major music artists, news anchors, talk show hosts, actors, priests and pastors, and school children across the globe.
Zach once said, “I want to be known as the kid who went down fighting, and didn’t really lose.” Fly a Little Higher is about how God used Zach to do something big.
My Take on the Book
This was such a great book, inspiration just wafts off every page. I had heard so much about Zach's life and music in the past, but this heartfelt book brings forth so much more than what I knew in the past. The book is honest and true and definitely a page turner. The book makes you think about your own life and makes you wonder what you would do in a similar situation. While I hope that I never have to live through what the author experienced, through reading this I feel hope and love. In this story you truly read a story about a young man who lived fully even though it was a short lived life. This is a powerful and poignant read that everyone should experience!
