So many times I wished I knew Marie but I didn't so I just prayed fiercely for her and her family. I also prayed for Charlie's family. For his mother, father and his siblings. Of course I also prayed for the Amish families and their children.
What a beautiful story of obedience and forgiveness. Imagine what this world would be like if every tragedy and problem were handled as this one was.
It is a perfect example of how to and how not to handle our problems.
Read the book. It is inspirational and will change how you live your life!
Susan Houck - Gap, Pennsylvania
She (Marie) was a 28-year-old mom of 3 young kids. She'd been raised in the church and was a classic "good girl," so when she learned that while she was at a prayer meeting, her seemingly good guy, Christian husband had shot up a nearby Amish schoolhouse, killing 5 little girls and injuring others, and killing himself as well, she couldn't believe it.
In the days and weeks following the shooting, she and her children were showered with goodwill from all the people you'd expect, and many you might not: the day of the shooting, several Amish men (including some whose children had been killed) came to the house where she were staying and offered their full forgiveness to her, as well as offers to help her in any way they could.
Marie makes some observations about the whole incomprehensible situation: God believed in me enough that he allowed me to be Charlie's wife, even though he knew that these circumstances would arise and threaten to destroy everything I held dear. He allowed me to walk the road that led here anyway. Another time she sensed God telling her, You know only limits. I am limitless.
God richly blessed Marie, giving her an almost unbelievably caring and optimistic family (her mom, who was with her throughout, commented shortly after the shooting, "I can't wait until God does something grand in this situation." Wow -- that is pretty much not what I would be thinking!Read more ›
And then I just happened to see the online video introduction to her story by Marie Monville, and I began to change my mind. I was impressed at who this woman was and intrigued at her desire to not retell the shooter's story, but to tell her own story of hope and healing. Next my friends began recommending the book..."highly"! And finally, my book club choose it for our monthly selection.
It is beautifully and sensitively written. The story is of how God provided and how the Amish community reached out to Marie and her family. It is about healing and wholeness. It is about miracles. It is about a glimmer of light that shown like a beacon in Marie's life. My great thanks to this author for offering her story as a way of allowing us all to move forward from the great pains in our lives.
