Overview

Joel Morrison proved his love for God when he lost all of his children in the 1952 Kern County earthquake. He weathered those hard times, and God blessed him with five more children. But now that his children are grown and living their own lives, Joel worries that the devourer has once again set his sights on the family that God has blessed.

For the most part, Joel’s children are successful and rich yet very unhappy. Joel realizes that giving his children more money will not make them happy, nor will it secure a place in heaven for them, when their hearts and souls are not fully committed to Christ. So, Joel Morrison decides to change his will in an attempt to teach his children a lesson in giving. He invites his children on a family vacation in the Bahamas to tell them that he will be giving most of his money away to charity. However, Joel’s declaration is not the biggest surprise of their vacation.

Shockwaves are sent throughout the Morrison family, the likes of which they may never recover from.

    I have just bought this book, and I am annoyed that it is ONLY 4

    I have just bought this book, and I am annoyed that it is ONLY 46 pages long!!! $2.99 for 46 pages!!?? What kind of rip-off is that!!?? This is the second time that this has happened, and needless to say, I am annoyed. Barnes ad Noble should state somewhere in the overview, purchase page, somewhere, the length of the book. While I know that this is not common practice, in a case when a book (I hesitate to call this a book) is less than 100 pages, than the reader/purchaser should be made aware of that fact. I mean, really, how many people would KNOWINGLY pay $3.00 for a 46 page book? I am sorry that I am not giving a full review of the book, becasue I hate when people do that, use the review place for reasons other than a review, but I felt the need to let people know what to expect, andt have them be totally surprised/shocked as I was. Wait for the WHOLE book (if there is one), rather than pay $3.00 for a chapter/sample!
