STORIES (in order of appearance)

"Baby Blues" by Patricia Haley

Based on the story of Abraham and Sarah, this story lets us better understand the importance of timing, patience, and consequences of operating in God's permissive will versus God's perfect will for our lives.

"Traveling Mercies" by Maurice M. Gray, Jr.

Based on the parable of the Good Samaritan, this story teaches us not to place limitations on how and through whom God may send a blessing, and our responsibility to help people whom we often do not know.

"A Sprig of Hope" by Jacquelin Thomas

Based on the story of Tamar (daughter of King David), this story acknowledges that while tragedy, sadness and betrayal are unfortunate parts of life, there is healing, restoration and happiness if we place our trust in God.

Based on Samson and Delilah, this story reminds us of the temptations of lust, the importance of honesty, the dangers of sin and the significance of repentance.

"Sword of the Lord" by Terrance Johnson

Based on the story of Jephthah, this story confirms that our pasts can't define us if we give our futures to God and that we all at some time or another need to forgive as well as receive forgiveness.

"The Best of Everything" by Victoria Christopher Murray

Based on the story of Hannah, this story gives the reader a better level of appreciation and thankfulness for what God has already done in our lives, which provides us with strength to endure in the midst of a crisis as well as give us patience as we await new blessings.
