Sonya Hunter releases world-shaking book Unsurvivable, a story born from life on the other side of the unsurvivable
Sonya Hunter has launched her debut book Unsurvivable, which encourages readers to look for the rainbow through their darkest storms.
“My passion is for this book to give someone going through a trial in their own life hope,” Sonya Hunter shares. “You just have to get through today. Technically, tomorrow doesn’t exist yet. No matter how dark the storm, always look for the rainbow around you; it’ll point you to the sunshine.”
Sonya Hunter is deeply equipped by personal experience to speak into life’s storms. At 29 years old, she was a stay-at-home mom, married to her supportive husband, Kris, with whom she had two sweet young sons. In the span of a heartbeat, a car wreck left Sonya widowed, bereft of one son, while her remaining son fought for his life in the ICU. In the wreckage of the life she’d hoped for, Sonya was driven to discover desperate trust in the life God was creating for her.
“I remember thinking, ‘I have to survive this,’” Sonya Hunter recalls.
Unsurvivable details how Sonya and her son Conner survived the unsurvivable, one prayer at a time. The experience forged an ironclad faith for their family. Sonya says, “Miracles do happen, even if you’re being told that there is no hope. Faith over Fear!”
For Sonya and Conner, that miracle has taken the form of a totally new family built with Sonya’s second husband, and the countless lives impacted and changed by their story. Despite ongoing medical challenges, all of it has been worth it to Sonya. “Conner is the glue that gave me a reason to live and hope,” Sonya says.
Although their story is unique and powerful, Sonya also recognizes that she’s not alone. “Everyone will face storms in their lives. They may be big or they may be small,” the author acknowledges. “Through my storms, I have learned that the only way to get through them is by keeping Christ at the center of the storm.”
Sonya is the first to admit that although she doesn’t have all the answers, what she does have is hope. “Do I understand why He doesn’t answer all my prayers the way I want? I don’t. But if I let Him handle it, there’s beauty that can come from the unsurvivable,” she concludes.
