I want to congratulate Sarah Young on her book "Jesus Calling." My children are connecting with the prayers and scriptures. I know two of my Moms in Touch friends have shared it many times, and one of those recommendations landed with me. This is Sarah's letter to her biggest fan (once again MOM!!!)
I dedicate Jesus Calling to my mother, whose encouragement helped me keep working till I completed the book. She showed her appreciation of my writing in many ways. She kept my manuscripts beside her bed, so she could read it every morning. Once, while away from her home, she even asked me to send her the readings day by day. After she died from cancer, I found portions of my writings that she had hand-copied into a journal. This mother who had prayed me through thick and thin opened her heart fully to my devotional writing. She was a master storyteller, and she talked about writing children's books someday. Though that day never came, there is a sense in which -- through me -- she has written this book.
Thank you, Nani! Your legacy lives on.
