I enjoyed your story very much. Peace only comes through surrender to Jesus.
I loved this! I had a friend in high school named Margaret, and so this article naturally caught my attention. Great imagery, great storytelling.
Thank you for this. So often we forget, in the frenzy of raising our children, how our actions can hurt and surpress the one we love the most. I really enjoyed reading this. Thanks, Jay
Outstanding! What a vivid picture of the power of original sin and a long walk toward submission. As a childcare provider I pray my many prayers for a "Jaclyn" will bear similar fruit. Great writing! I love the hope for the mother in the end too.

This touched my heart in ways you will never know! Thank you so much for sharing. You write well, and I especially liked the imagery of Jaclyn surrendering in prayer beside her bed at four and again at seventeen, and how you tied it all together at the end with the same image of hope for Mom. Wow! God bless,
