This book entitled Stand is close to my heart. Some of the names may have been changed or excluded to protect the privacy of the people in this book. Stand was birthed through the tears and prostate places along the way. Mary Louise King fights for her life after becoming critically ill while in the hospital for an overnight observation stay. Her daughter takes her and runs to another state to keep her alive. Days turn into months and months into nearly two years as they weather the storm. The daughter is challenged as she and her husband take on the chores of caring for a completely bed-ridden tracheostomy and ventilator patient at home. Their love for the Lord their God and for her fuel their efforts, as they push beyond their boundaries to see dreams come true.
The daughter is a dreamer and has had many dreams about her mother being healed; therefore, she refuses to quit or to back down in any way. The fight intensifies as the mother and daughter endure this storm. The daughter has no idea that her main support person for her mother will die in the middle of the storm. This is unexpected, leaving her heart broken and devastated. The love she has for her God and for her mother propel her forward with a new strength and desire for her destiny and purpose. She loses not only her dad, but also a special brother-in-love, as well as a close aunt who is like a second mother to her. Just when she thinks it is over, she unexpectedly loses a cousin who is as close as a sister. The pain and the tears take grieving to another level. This leaves her heart not only broken, but torn and ripped in ways that only God can repair. This book shares how she is able to stand when she literally is being chased after and pressured to turn off her mother's ventilator. Stand gives you an inspiring example of standing firm in the midst of the storm. I pray it encourages others not to give up when things look bad, but to trust in and to depend on wholeheartedly the Lord God, Who is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we can ask or even think. Ephesians 3:20. All lives matter, including the young and the elderly. We must be their voice when they are unable to fight for and to protect themselves.
Weather the storm and..........STAND, STAND, STAND!!!

It's official. Becky Johnson knows how to spin a great mystery. Stand is equally engrossing as part one. I expect the next I installment to be just as fabulous. For all mystery lovers, the Charlotte Marshall Mysteries is one series you would, without a doubt, enjoy.
