Soon after, they began singing Christian music and laid the foundation upon which the Isaacs ministry has been built.  Also a 30 year breast cancer survivor, she was the inspiration for a hit country song called "I'm Gonna Love You Through It," co written by Sonya and Jimmy Yeary, recorded by Martina McBride.  Lily's testimony has been an inspiration to people around the world, so much that she has written an autobiography about her life's story.  Her love for Jesus has brought her through every chapter of her life and she loves to sing and share about His love.
