Walking With My Father is the personal account of a young woman that takes you on a missionary quest of incredible faith. Every turn is filled with extraordinary experiences and life-changing encounters. From early youth growing up in a small California town, you will be lead to the precarious streets of South Central Los Angeles, down the dusty roads to remote parts of Mexico, and on to the dense green forest of a rural village in West Africa. You will journey with a woman who left behind all the world has to offer to answer the call of God in her life to go into the world and spread the Good News. This kind of life is predicated on a strong belief in faith, the life force of every devoted Christian believer. You will share some of the astonishing episodes, inspiring stories, remarkable events, and unique activities that helped shape the life of this young woman into a vessel used by God. Our lives are the only meaningful expression of what we believe and in Whom we believe. And the only real wealth, for any of us, lies in our faith.
