In keeping with the Mother's Day theme this week, Lily Isaacs, the matriarch of the Isaacs family, will be releasing her autobiography later this month. The book is entitled "You Don't Cry Out Loud."
I think it's safe to say that Lily Isaacs has one of the most stirring testimonies and backgrounds of any gospel singer today. She is of Jewish descent born in Germany to Holocaust survivors. As a child, her family relocated to New York. Lily had experience as a folk singer and even Broadway aspirations before her life took another turn. She is a breast cancer survivor which was the basis for the well-known song, "I'm Gonna Love You Through It." Now she is the matriarch of a bluegrass gospel family in Tennessee.
I think this will be an incredible read. I appreciate Lily's willingness to open up and share her life story of hardships and how her faith has helped her along the way.
The book is available for pre-order now but should be available later this month.
