    My favorite book by my favorite author! (Haven’t read yours yet…) I’m so blown away by your website and first chapter. I found you on Unshakeable Hope’s site. I’ve been ill these past few months and find inspiration and encouragement from those of you who have REALLY been ill and seen God do miracles and sustain you when all seems lost. It makes my illness look like a walk in the park and keeps me going. Thank you for sharing. You are a beautiful woman with a wonderful family and a love of and faith in God that draws people. I can’t wait to read the rest of your blog and book!
