I am the Mother of three sons and a daughter, six grandsons and one great granddaughter. For many years I have been married to an Ordained Bishop in the Church of God. In our pastoral ministry we have seen God heal and restore numerous times. About 14 years ago my husband Jerry and I moved to Brookport, Illinois to retire. Our thoughts were on travel and spending time with our married children and grandchildren. We never dreamed our lives would take the turn it has taken. Jerry and I fell in love and married at a young age. God has had His hand on us from the very beginning. In this book, I open my heart and share my life before marriage, funny things that happened raising our children and also the times I had to stand and watch as my husband lay at the point of death. In 2006 our world was forever changed when Jerry was injured with a severe brain injury, in a motorcycle accident. I bear my soul and tell how I had reached the point where I wanted to die, but God in His omnipotent way picked me up and hung on to me when I couldn't hang on any longer. Evidently, God was not finished with us. He has been so faithful and I hope you can feel His power and presence as you read my story.
