I said, “Mom, I’m just so sorry for hurting you.” My words were kind, and I again tried to explain why I had done what I did. All of a sudden, buried tears deep inside my heart began to pour out.
Through my crying I said, “Mom, I love you so much. Do you know that?”
She responded quietly, “I have had my doubts, sometimes.”
As the conversation continued, we both talked and listened to each other. It was one of those mother-daughter times we will both treasure for the rest of our lives. My mom hugged me, and I quickly hugged her right back.
A tremendous weight had lifted from my soul. We connected, we forgave, and we loved. God helped us both, and His love is so amazing!
In December of 2013, my heart was overflowing with joy, and I once again felt inspired to write. I was in prayer, and I asked God a question. “How can I show people that I have really changed?”
I felt God’s answer, and it was pretty simple. “Just show them what you do every day.”

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This author is so transparent and has a real love for Jesus, after reading the first book "The Change" I felt compelled to read this new book. It is a great follow up, you see how God is working extraordinarily in the ordinary, mundane every day. I highly recommend this book for those stuck and wondering where God is, anyone that has been hurt or hurt someone they love, those that don't know the Lord that are curious to see what it is like to follow Christ, and of course everyone that has read the first book!
