My daughter wrote a book

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things.

Philippians 4:8

For the last several years my eldest daughter has been exploring her spiritual journey. Her story is hers to tell, but as a mom, I have watched her grow. My story around her started with a sense of helplessness as she struggled with depression, eating and self-harm disorders, and a serious detachment from the faith she had as a child. As she has recovered, the Lord continued to call her back to Himself, no matter what it took. It wasn’t until her daughter’s birth that she began to listen to God’s call.
