Smith shares God’s grace with ‘Second Chances’

First-time author Pat Smith is feeling good these days. Her new book, “Second Chances,” is taking off, her husband, football Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith, and their five children are doing well and most important, her relationship with Christ grows stronger each day. Her upbeat attitude is a stark contrast to the depression and sense of loss she to used to feel. Fortunately, she said, God’s grace covered her and His direction led her to write about rediscovering purpose and joy in life. “I wrote “Second Chances” to give hope to people, to tell them don’t give up,” said Smith.
