Mary is a naive 20-year-old in 1945 when her high school sweetheart, Jack, returns to their small Indiana steel town wounded from World War II and makes her his bride. While Jack struggles to find his place in the world, Mary begins her own journey of self-discovery. As the years and letters unfold, Mary and Jack have five children, including their first-born son, Junior, who is not “right", an issue that contributes to the turmoil in their marriage and impacts their lives in unforeseen ways.

Thirty-plus parables Jesus gave us are reviewed, plus a few short sayings of his that are also marked as parables, each one having a short and concise summery after it. The parables that Jesus gave us can be categorized as teaching parables, kingdom parables, and prophetic and warning parables. The audiobook orders the parables in a logical teaching progression that they were given to us over the ministry of Jesus, also showing the relevance of why it was given at that time.

Not every love story begins or ends with the passion of a bodice-ripper. Some develop slowly - an occasional look or a choice word the only spark they ever know. Some endure adversity - lies, infidelity, or opposition creating flames of distrust instead of the warm thaw of a hesitant heart. And some are so unlikely, so unexpected - no one sees the connection coming, not even the lovers themselves. Mine to Tell is a gentle story of adversity and forgiveness, a tale of mystery you won't forget.

When Terri Ann Leidich's 20-year-old son was suddenly killed in a vehicle accident, she was thrown into the roller coaster agony of grief. Adapted from the journal she kept through the experience of her horrendous loss, this book is a roadmap for parents who have lost children, as well as for those who are on the sidelines watching the agony of someone they care about go through the grieving process, and not knowing what to do or how to help. Terri Ann's ability to put emotions and experiences into words that everyone can understand and relate to can shine as a beacon of hope and understanding during a time of excruciating pain.

This was a great one of a kind book about suffering and great grief over losing a child. She did a excellant job describing her feelings and questions she asked herself and GOD. My heart went out to her as a mother and made me aware of mother's I've known who have lost a child. She sums it all up with her question "How can anyone go through this without Faith." Great book and narration.
