Despite an uncelebrated birth, abandonment by her father, and an abusive, alcoholic husband, Jean Yanakos STILL knew God had a purpose and a plan for her life - to give her a future and a hope. When God gave her a clear word of His purpose for her life - "to teach, to preach, and to heal" - she was baffled How could He accomplish that through a woman who was uneducated and without funds for education with an alcoholic husband and two small children to raise? Now, eighty-nine years young, Jean's life is a testimony to God's faithfulness. With transparent candor, Jean recounts her memoires - significant events that have impacted and transformed her remarkable Christian journey. God has steadfastly walked with her, and by His Grace, Jean has gone the distance and she is indeed finishing strong If He did it for her, can He not do the same for you? Sally Power is a teacher and has taught Deaf and Hard of Hearing students for over 35 years.
