Child of Vision Woman of Wisdom

Front Cover
Morgan James Publishing, 2007 - Religion - 130 pages
Child of Vision is more than a personal journey for me. It is written to help all those people who have had their hopes and dreams destroyed along their own journey. As a young girl, I would sit under a large old oak tree and dream about what the big world was like beyond the small farm in East Tennessee where I grew up. I wondered what that world would someday offer me. Little did I know that the choices I made in life would destroy my own dreams. Most of us think that our brokenness and disappointments are the end of our hope. Even when I turned to the church, there seemed to be no relief for my hopelessness. Child of Vision will give you the encouragement to try again and provide some steps of wisdom to walk out of the worst of broken lives. You do not have to live in bondage to your past or failures. You can rise up with strength and passion to see yourself whole and complete.

About the author (2007)

In 1957 I was born the sixth child on a farm in rural East Tennessee to very poor parents, neither of which drove a car or ventured very far from home. Our house had no insulation so that ice formed on the inside during the winter and many nights we ate a spoonful of flour to keep from having hunger pains. The only water came from a spring several hundred yards away, and education was not a priority. Unfortunately, the poverty in my life opened the door for me to seek any way out. I thought a man could provide the escape and was into my third marriage before I truly learned to depend on the Lord and use the wisdom He had given me over the years to find satisfaction and joy. I have had careers as a runway model, makeup artist and special events coordinator, and counter manager for two large international makeup companies. But my most rewarding career has been as a mother. In addition to finding personal freedom, I learned how to help my three children rise out of their desperate situations headed toward lives of addictions and abuse. They, too, have found keys to a successful life. Until recently I was a real estate agent selling in a traditional neighborhood development. As a result of selling more than 40 homes in a year, in 2006 I was honored by induction into ACES circle of excellence by the Marketing and Sales Institute. I have left the real estate industry and am pursuing the establishment of a Health Spa that will allow clients to focus on both their physical and emotional health in the journey toward wholeness. My husband and I are the co-founders of Living In Freedom Everyday (LIFE, Inc.), which is a teaching/counseling ministry focused on relationship, parenting issues, and leadership training. It is in the same small town of Madisonville, Tennessee I had escaped through marriage at age 18. The ministry also birthed The Church of LIFE, which we serve as Senior Ministers.
