Nurses share with those entrusted to their care life's peaks and valleys, life's joys, tears, and mysteries. They are present for the baby's first cry and the dying person's last breath. They lose races to save life and see miracles unfold just as defeat seems imminent. Here is captured such moments. The 50 stories span the 50-year history of the Mennonite Nurses Association. These stories are universal stories that Christian nurses everywhere will recognize from their own experiences.
