My story begins on seat of the aluminum swing set in the back yard of my childhood home happily singing church hymns. It continues to the tan armchair of my bedroom where I faced the darkest moment of my life. The in-between time is dotted with challenges of attaining the “American Dream” and the ultimate fallout of that pursuit– divorce and life as a single mom. The common thread throughout is my faith in God – sometimes in plain sight, sometimes not. The turning point was the vision of Jesus that appeared to me after my divorce and how my life changed following that incredible event.
