This book is an awesome account of the author's journey for spiritual discovery. She does an excellent job of accounting her experiences throughout life that have shaped her into the woman that she is today. She talks about how she first "encountered" God, and the course of life's events that have kept her in close relationship with Him.
Not only can the reader relate to the varying degrees of difficulty that situations can bring, but it is easy to celebrate with the author as she relates some of her personal experiences with the small/overlooked miracles in life with which you can take joy (i.e. the birth of a child, autism, healing from disease/disorder, answered prayers). She is candid about the struggles of being a battered woman, single/divorced mother, finding new love, death of close family -- all things that could possibly break someone. But through each situation, she is able to relate how she made it through through faith in God.
This book is an excellent choice for anyone needing inspiration and/or encouragement on how to make it through the ups and downs of life's journey.

What an absolutely beautiful journey with a lovely woman. Regina made every life experience feel so real. She is a wonderful author and poet, however, a very down to earth person. Her love for God is heartwarming. Her faith is phenomenal. I look forward to meeting Regina and I just know her spirit will be contagious. I recommend this wonderful book to everyone.

Regina Allen-Wilson has become one of my favorite authors. In this magnificent testimony, From Raindrops to Rainbows, she balances experience, intellect, emotion and spirituality. Her love for God is clearly revealed and she's not afraid to disclose it. Her writing is an example of her physical verbal ability to express her relationship with God and family. She approaches the testimony of her life experiences with a 'Revivalist' fervor, wrapped in non-conflicting poetic deliberation. While she communicates here through softness of voice and creative thought, she also demonstrates strength in compelling others to hear the message. This book is an inspiration to believers and an encouragement to those who want to believe. Sister Regina, continue to 'Walk the Walk' and 'Talk the Talk' of your faith. To God Be The Glory!
