You held my interest all the way through. Your description of the girl and the incident with the bird was spot on. You made me feel the emotions you went through. Well done!

You peaked my interest from the beginning and held it to the end. Outstanding job of describing "those eyes", a hurting soul.

Hi Stephanie,

I'm just preparing all the winning entries for inclusion in the FaithWriters' Anthology for last quarter, and need to get a short bio note from you (written in the third person), to include with our "Meet Our Authors" section. If you are at all unsure what to write, it may be worth checking some of the bio notes at the end of the articles at FaithWriters' Magazine (http://www.faithwritersmagazine.com). Once you have your bio note ready, could you please send it through to me at debporter@breathfreshair.org

Thanks for that. Look forward to hearing from you.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator and Editor, FaithWriters' Magazine)

Article was excellent. It so hard to conceive anyone would hurt a child, little animal, a grandparent but it happens. We tend to not be as observant as we need to be. I had an incident happen to me when I worked in the hospital that reminds me to
watch and be His hand extended.
Thanks for the story.
