As a licensed childcare provider and a sought-after consultant to families seeking the best for their children, Marilyn Randolph has shaped the course of countless lives. The owner of Howard’s Family Day Care, which has operated since 1984 and was established under the directorship of her late grandmother, Ms. Betty A. Howard, Randolph has impeccable professional credentials. Having earned an AA degree in Social Behavior with an emphasis in Business and Early Childhood Education along with permits from the State of California, she is well prepared to meet the challenges presented by developing children. Additionally, Marilyn has acquired several certificates through Teachstone, First 5, and Cares Plus, enhancing her already strong qualifications. Family is at the core of her beliefs and values. She is married with six children, three of whom are adopted, and they all share a loving home. Randolph is a noted author, having written Be Still, a volume that will be published in 2016. She is currently completing her second book that explores the subject of opening a family daycare center in the home. That book will serve as a guide for people who want to start a child care business. Future plans include continuing to travel to minister, building her successful consulting business, and supporting scholarships on an ongoing basis to continuing students in early childhood education at the junior college level throughout California.

I love to hear a person’s story. We all have such different experiences and obstacles we deal with and most of the time you never know just how much a person has actually go through to bring them to where they are in the present moment.
This book told Marilyn’s story—the good, the bad and the ugly. I learned a lot about her in her very candid and open truths. As a Christian, I feel like we often have to suffer in silence. We are not always given the privilege of being healed by sharing our past and our struggles for fear of being judged, but Marilyn has inspired me to not be ashamed of the things I’ve been through because it all has lead me to the peace I have in Christ. People have thrown in the towel and turned their back on God for much less than what Marilyn endured, but the fact that she survived by its self is a testimony. And not only has she survived, she has clung to God and He has elevated her to great success, love, peace and put her in a position where she comfortably can share her challenges to encourage others.
Sometimes, it’s just makes things easier knowing someone else has go through what you have or something similar. Though our situations have been different, this book really ministered to me. Her book may speak of her story, but Marilyn is really focused on what the reader can benefit from her story. The book is meant to uplift and help deliver the readers who have faced great problems that maybe they don’t know how to handle, or are embarrassed of what they have done. But when you repent, God throws those sins into the sea of forgetfulness, and Marilyn is a living example of that.
It was painful to read the abusive situations that Marilyn had endured knowing how kind, loving, selfless and amazing she is, but it let me know that sometimes we suffer from experiences we are undeserving of, but it’s not an excuse to give up. This book tells me to not give up on myself, and definitely not give up on God. I’m sad that her journey had large bumps in the road, but God has taken her tragedy and turned it into a testimony to encourage myself and all the other readers!
