ANEW Creation is a true story about a family, their love for each other... and of baseball.
When their oldest son Mitchell came down with an undiagnosed mysterious illness, Beth and Brad Thorp took him across the nation looking for answers. After five years, and still with no understanding of the cause, Mitchell passed away. The Thorps were faced with persevering through trials that tested their faith and yet ultimately found hope, joy, and purpose by creating the Mitchell Thorp Foundation to bring the light of hope for other children and families fighting for their tomorrows.
ANew Creation is an inspirational story about love, faith, perseverance, family, courage, community, forgiveness, God's grace, and restoration. It is written as a witness for Christ living through them and documenting his love and faithfulness throughout their journey, even though at times they felt God had abandoned them. God and Mitchell spoke to their spirits and profoundly showed them signs along the way to keep living and finding purpose in Mitchell's death. The Thorps discovered that God never wastes a tragedy. He demonstrated that in their lives through the biblical principles of loving others in action and in truth— which ultimately created a supernatural phenomenon, a "ripple effect," that drew people to them and ultimately transformed many lives for the glory of God.
Proceeds from ANEW Creation will go directly to the Mitchell Thorp Foundation to help support families whose children suffer from life-threatening illnesses, diseases, and disorders.
