In Book 3 of "Survival Stories," Lonna Lisa Williams tells how she survived a tragic childhood and cancer. Then she realized she was an abused wife. But instead of finding a new life, she retreated into prescription medicine that her doctors gave her. A wildfire burned her California mountains, and Lonna flew to New Zealand with her two trusting children. She lost an international trial and returned to California where she lost everything in divorce. Her castle of a home was gone, her children hidden from her, and Lonna's downward spiral into drugs continued. She crashed her car in the mountains then nearly bled to death while stopping all prescription medicine. But, like the mythical phoenix bird and through the power of resurrection, Lonna rose to a new life of teaching English overseas. Walk with her on this journey of adventure, across the frozen rivers of Russia and to the sunset seas of Turkey. Discover how the extremes of fire and ice can shape a person's life. Catch a flame and snowflake in a camera's lens and listen to the music of this writer.

After losing her childhood family, surviving cancer, almost dying in a car accident, and watching her family and life in California burn up after a bitter divorce, Lonna found a new life teaching English overseas. Her four children live in California, and she visits them when she can. Her motto is that Christ's light can shine in the darkest places, and that after death comes resurrection.
