Using personal anecdotes to illustrate how God has worked in her life, she shares her experiences with her faith and how she found comfort and guidance in the Bible and through prayer.

This book is one that is real, transparent and possibly more direct than other books you will read and it an act of obedience to God on my part. It is not written with the intent of bragging, airing laundry or meeting others expectations. It is written for those that are seeking because they feel a need for transitioning and transformation but unsure of how to begin. Just make the choice to follow Christ Jesus, to trust him, and obey his word.
I wrote this book in the hopes of helping others find their walk with Christ a little easier. The path we choose to follow as Christians may be hard and even seem difficult at times, but it brings us closer to God. This is a description of the path described by Jesus Christ, backed by specific reference to scripture and providing clear answers to questions that many of us have. It is easy to understand and proceeds in a logical manner to provide insight on how to walk the narrow path. The book gives comfort to those who are in need of God's presence by giving clear descriptions of how the doors to the Kingdom of Heaven are always open. It describes the presence of the Holy Spirit and aids in understanding our relationship with God and Jesus Christ. This is for those that are interested in Christian faith. The book is easy to read, gives sound advice on understanding our relationship with Jesus Christ, and is based on specific quotations from scripture.
