She raised her daughter to love the Lord and live in purity. Her daughter’s new husband also loves the Lord and waited patiently for his bride. I asked Debbie once if she experienced the terrible teens with her daughter that most people do. She said, "You know Melanie, no." What an encouragement!
It wasn’t long ago that I prayed for new homeschooling friends and a mentor. The Lord really delivered with these two — Shannon and Debbie. What a privilege it was to see Debbie’s dream come true. I have hope that I will one day see my dreams for my children come true, too.
