Connie Ramon's writing debut is an inspirational story based on her personal journal, which introduces the reader to a personal struggle of faith and support for a friend whose friendship was relatively new to her. The journey started upon learning that her friend had been abducted. Connie was compelled (and as she later realized, called to serve) to be vigilant in prayer and offer encouraging words that she hoped would reach her friend spiritually. In doing so, she takes us on a journey of faith in which she often struggled with her own impatience. Despite her own family tragedy and other personal issues, she offered relentless support to her friend and her family reassuring them that God's hand was at work even in the darkest times. Connie learned lessons to last a lifetime as she progressed from fear, anger and pain to faith, perseverance and sacrifice. Ultimately, Connie exhorts us all to share a message of faith, hope and support with anyone who experiences any type of bondage or suffering. Connie Ramon is one of six siblings whose family resides in South Florida. She came to know the Lord at an early age as she was raised in a Christian home. She is the former Treasurer of a small community church in Miami. Connie completed her undergraduate studies at Trinity International University (Chicago) and earned her MBA at Regis College (Denver). She is the proud mother of two lovely teenage daughters.
