Nadine Hennesey grew up learning lessons of perseverance, courage, and godliness. She needed every one of these resources when she lost her young husband after only 11 months of marriage. Widowed and pregnant with their child, struggling to overcome the pain of her devastating loss, she renewed her trust in God. To honor the dreams she and her husband had shared and to follow God’s leading, Nadine, along with her daughter Lydia, blazed a trail of adventure and godliness, reaching out to other women and children marked by suffering and loss. The result was a groundbreaking work in war-torn Kosovo. An inspiring story of what happens when you follow God, even when you don’t see His plan.

MoonpiePRYORAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A STORY OF COURAGE AND DEVOTION!January 31, 2012MoonpiePRYORAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Ms. Hennesey's story of losing her husband to a heart attack at the age of 26 touched close to home. I almost lost my husband at the age of 25 to heart disease and we had a 2 year old and a 1 year old. Her sharing of this experience was so genuine that I hurt along with her. I felt her debilitating emotions and her struggling with rising above the question, "Without him, what do I do?"
I cannot even begin to say how much I admire her for continuing to look to the Lord. What courage it took to leave her family, with her young child to go to a war torn country to serve in missions. Most young widows would have been swallowed up in grief and the task ahead of raising their child alone.
The book gave me such an insight into the lives of not only the people of Kosovo, but also the difficulties missionaries face in serving in other countries. She used that same courage that brought her there to fight for changes for the families she served and overcome obstacles she faced there.
I was very touched that from a very young age her daughter had the same heart for missions and godly wisdom beyond her years in serving the Lord.
This book is a testimony to a life that put God before all other desires, comfort and suffering. It also shows the great and mighty things God will do through a life so surrendered. Thank you, Nadine Hennesey. I am both inspired and ashamed. Inspired to put God first and be totally yielded to Him in all circumstances. I am ashamed at how much more I could do for Him in all the blessings He has bestowed upon me.
I received this book free from Discovery House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255
