How Beautiful was written at the request of Matt and Kristy Brown in memory of their 

son, Eli Reuben Brown, with us briefly on May 19, 2008. “How beautiful upon the 
mountains are the feet of him who brings glad tidings of peace; who publishes good 
tidings of good, and who declares salvation; who says to Zion, Your God reigns!” (Isaiah 
52:7)   

It was privilege for me to write this piece for the Browns, who shared with me some of 

their most intimate thoughts and feelings in the process. They have been the embodiment 
of Faith, Hope and Love and are a living example that “the greatest of these” is always 
Love.
