God blessed me with the people He brought into my life. He provided opportunities, as well as mentors and those who challenged, tested and encouraged me.As a woman, I quickly learned to approach any situation as a peer and not an underling. I always held to my godly worldview while respecting the other person's right to their own for we will all stand before the throne.My faith is what carries me through this bramble bush of life. In the past 20 years I have known the loss of a father, a brother, a brother, a husband, a sister, a mother, a brother and many others my heart grieves. Life has taken me to my knees. I hold them all dear and within. He gives me hope of being with them again. I have written this book to say, don't place your hope in this world.
