Overview

Marcia Nelson reveals the U-turns and turning points on the path toward peace, freedom, and happiness. She helps us recognize God's saving grace by offering intimate glimpses into the lives of people whose faith has transformed their outlook and circumstances. Having traveled around the country to gather these stories, Nelson introduces us to women and men who have fought drug and alcohol addiction, traded crime for caring, converted loss and illness into compassion, and turned despair into joy. In meeting these people, and in sharing in Nelson's own journey of faith, we encounter what is best about us and also most human: the ability to make mistakes, make amends, and make good. Along the way, we encounter the God who never gives up on us.
