This is my daughter’s blog. She writes of the same things but from a different perspective. I thought you might enjoy reading this in the absence of anything from me lately! It’s hard for me to read. I regret having abandoned my children during a time when they needed me. Thankful they have forgiving hearts.


It is crazy to think that just months ago my life was completely different. Just months ago I was living in an apartment. I was working 50 hours a week between 2 jobs. I had tons of friends and a completely different life style.

Your determination to see God’s goodness in the brokenness of life is inspiring and draws me to worship. Thank you.

  2. Apples of gold, Brenda, these words are apples of gold. I pray that Faith inherits only the good from me.
