Our mother has always been a faithful witness to the grace and salvation found in Jesus Christ. She was a witness first to her children at home. She read us Bible stories from Kenneth Taylor's The Bible in Pictures for Little Eyes. These were fascinating with the pictures helping me enter into something of the world of that story in my imagination.
She prayed, and witnessed and sang songs of the faith at home. And the Spirit finally brought me "home", and brought my two sisters home to faith in Christ largely through her love in witnessing and praying for us.
I thank God for the faith and love of my mother.
