God never promises an easy life. In fact, the Bible tells us we will have trouble. And so often, those trials lead us right into the arms of Jesus. For the Kelly family, their second born, Hunter represented so much promise. The son of Hall of Fame Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, Hunter was born with the expectation of football games in the yard and hunting trips with his dad. But Hunter would never speak a word or throw a perfect spiral. His life, though short, was profound. Hunter’s mother, Jill Kelly, and his sister, Erin Kelly Bean, recently joined us for the Family Life Christmas Ladies Luncheon. I hope you find our conversation overflowing with hope, in the midst of trials.

Jill’s book, Without A Word tells the story of Hunter’s life and how God moved in their family. She has also written several books and devotionals on grief and hope. Erin is the author of Kelly Tough, a book about her relationship with her dad.
