Overview The crystal hummingbird, a Christmas gift from her wayward son, becomes the symbol of a mother's love...and loss.

The Crystal Hummingbird Aug 16, 2006
A deeply touching story of tragedy and despair and one woman's battle to overcome the loss of her precious child. The strong sense of love and commitment to her family and our Lord is so beautifully expressed throughout her story and poetry. Emotions surreal to the reader, that you feel as if you have shared each of these moments in time, side by side with her.
I came to know Bella a short time ago and have been so blessed by her gentle spirit, not knowing of the heartache and turmoil she had experienced until I read this book.
Although most of us have at one time or another felt the heart wrenching sting of death through the loss of a loved one, the death of a child I cannot even begin to fathom. I had difficulty putting this book down as I was certain that the Lord's purpose and plan would be revealed in this family's story. This book offers the hope of faith renewed and lives restored through their journey from tears and suffering to joy and peace within.
Surely the Lord has purposed Bella to write her story that we might know that only by His grace and mercy can we have the victory to endure the most painful and trying times in our lives. God's word says, "He will never leave us, nor forsake us", and testimony to the evidence of His promise flows throughout each page of "The Crystal Hummingbird".
Bella is truly gifted of the Lord in writing and poetry. I praise Him for touching her heart to share her story. I pray He will continue to use her gift to help others in their struggle to overcome. To Him be all the glory!
