The Book

This work is dedicated to our momma, who passed away in  2022, for her tireless efforts in caring for her five children; and to our grandmother, “Granny”, who passed away in 1997, for her tireless efforts in assisting momma for many years. Also to our oldest brother, who passed away in  2016, after many years of pain and suffering from multiple health issues.

Each of us has a story that needs to be told no matter who we are, where we come from, or what happened to us. If one person reads your story and it has been of help, it has served its purpose by enabling that person to get through his or her own struggles.

Everyone has something to cling to that enables him or her to get through the challenges we face in life. I recall this Bible verse when something happens, and I am searching for an answer and need strength to get through it: “To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.”

Also, God said he will be with you and deliver you from evil not take you around it: “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for thou art with me.” You have to go through it, therefore making you a better person in the end.
