A few years after her daughter's birth, Staton's life began to change for the better. She met a loving man who provided well for her and remained devoted to her. Yet, underneath all the changes in her outer world, Staton, like so many others who have been abused and traumatized, carried personal demons with her. Her inner world was built on self-doubt and negativity, rage and quite often, despair. Her day of reckoning arrived when she bottomed out and chose to die. Something strange happened to make her change her mind.
All Staton's children were born with special needs. Her daughter, Victoria, who arrived in the world with a severe problem, was a loving, kind girl. She made friends wherever she went, and she touched lives with her capacity for joy and unconditional love. She began to infuse her mother with a sense of God, of life's purpose, of the power that comes with giving and caring for others. Her mother considered her to be an old soul in a child's body.
Although this book moves towards a Christian theme, it is also full of an honest questioning for truth, for crying out for help during moments of doubt and despair, for sharing a profound grief that is personal and painful, yet joyous and purposeful. Readers will be deeply touched, perhaps changed, by her daughter Victoria's spirit that the author brings to life in this book. No matter what the reader's chosen path to God is, this book will touch hearts. It is not only a mother's tribute to an undying love for her daughter, but a tribute to the power within all of us to rise above life's challenges and to love others around us.
We must obey the Lord fully and ALWAYS! And have nothing to do with the works of darkness , as well as NOT have a form of godliness and denying the power thereof, that is the Holy Spirit and His ways, as it says in His Word in 2 Timothy 3:5. For we must be completely set apart from the world and the things that are of the world, as the Lord commands us in 2 Corinthians 6:17.
ALL saints are called to be doers of the Word of God and not hearers only in James 1:22. We all know what is wrong and right in our hearts, whether we have just gotten saved or been saved for years in the Lord.
Though it is extremely painful to loose a child and I am sorry for the author's loss, I cannot agree with the lukewarmness of the author's walk with God! For the Lord commands us to either make the tree and its' fruit good or make it and its' fruit bad, in Matthew 12:33. For no man can serve two masters as the Lord says in His Word and our God is holy and commands us to be holy as He is in ALL things and at all times once we have been born again, and therefore we must submit and stay submitted to Him daily.
