Pain and poverty paved the way to peace and spiritual prosperity in the life of the author, Patricia Ann Boyes, ordinary person.
In this memoir, she takes us from a three-year-old child witnessing her mother's brutal beatings, to a seventeen-year-old suffering the throes of childbirth; through a bitter marriage breakdown, and on to new love, entrepreneurship, and a battle with cancer.
This memoir will not compare with that of the rich and famous or with the extraordinary drama of the Malalas of the world, but it may compare in some ways with the lives of other ordinary people who also have a story to tell, lessons to learn, and obstacles to overcome.
It's a story of believing God's promises and learning life's lessons.
Someone once said, Don't die with your words or your music still in you.
The author has taken this advice.

Tell us a little about yourself. I gave birth to this book at the age of seventy-seven, proving that you are never too old to start something new. My family of five children, fourteen grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren have been the backbone of this undertaking and their support, along with the support of my church family has seen this project through to fruition.
What was your motivation behind this project? Knowing how much I love to write, my family gave me a wonderful Christmas gift last year of a manuscript keepsake box, a contribution to publishing costs, and a beautifully written "About the Author" page. I began putting the book together the next day.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope it will give people hope and inspiration when they go through some of the trials and tribulations of life. I hope that those who don't yet know God will come to know Him through these pages.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I was in awe of how much was involved in actually publishing a book. I had no idea how much work was involved, and my poor old brain got a wonderful daily workout.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Rick Warren, Wayne Dyer, Julia Cameron, Bruce Wilkinson, and last, but not least, the Bible, to name a few. Honestly, I could write another book on the books I've read that inspired me.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Just that All Things ARE Possible, only believe. Life is good even when you think it's a pain in the neck. And never give up on your dreams. As Goethe so famously said, "Whatever you think you can do, or dream you can, begin it...'
