Remembering your way to restoration If, at this moment in your life the glow has dimmed even in minute measure and you feel the need to upgrade your heart and spirit to the next level or return to a deeper place then this book was written with you in mind. It was birthed during a wonderful but very difficult and painful time in my life, which spurred me into seeking God by taking several life lessons classes at my church on prayer and discipleship. I became fascinated with the enormous connotations and hues found in God's different names. The more I studied the different names of God the closer I felt to him and the more proof I found of His loving interventions in my life. Using poetry, prose and journaling, I hope to help others find the deep peace of God's presence in their own lives. In A Woman of Lydia, the reader is encouraged to recall in their hearts and spirit those instances that they have seen the character of God played out in their own lives then write it out in their own words what that memory is and how it has impacted their lives. Hopefully having a tangible reminder of God's grace in hand can be of value to all of us during these trying times.
