About the Book

Author Amber McCall would like to think that her rare disease doesn’t define her—it’s not who she is, after all. And yet in conjunction with many other things, it has shaped who she has become.

Sand Dollars and Swiss Cheese shares McCall’s life story—a story about everything. She recounts the fears, joys, frustrations, and triumph, as well as the hopeful moments when she chose to put her trust in the God who is bigger than all of it. She prays that her life experiences will encourage you, give you strength to face your mountains, and open you to the grace that is so abundantly available to those who choose joy. Choosing joy and hope through the darkest moments strengthened her faith and allowed her to continue to pursue a career in education, start her own business, and share her faith with others.

This candid, heartfelt memoir tells the tale of a life riddled with chronic diseases and the hope that comes from living that life with a faithful God who heals.
