Sitting in a meadow in the shade of a crabapple tree were two little sisters. They watched as ants traveled back and forth on an exact path with loads that appeared much too heavy for their tiny backs. Meeting other ants they would stop and engage in "ant talk" then march on to their intended destination. Observing nature, the sisters learned that all of life's creatures have little worlds of their own that somehow must be important to God. Otherwise, what was His creative purpose for their being?

It is about a teacher's life experiences as she observed that lurking beneath the surface were interferences that would make the teaching of children much more difficult than it ought to be. In its own subtle way One Life shows how biblical truth has been undermined one step at a time, slowly, very slowly, so that society in general is taken unaware. The real concern is that today it continues. Virginia Parks Jones was born May 23, 1922, to Hobart and Esther McBrayer Parks in the hills of Kentucky in a town called Corbin.
