A heartwarming testimony to God's faithfulness! You portray a mother's spiritual frustrations with a delightful, light touch. (I could just picture your daughter "passing the communion plate like a dessert tray"!)
The three paragraphs describing how the Holy Spirit nabbed each one might have been set up a bit more clearly, but once Wendy got zapped---BAM, BAM, BAM! You had me on the edge of my seat. Great ending, too!

Wow! Every parent in America who has a wayward child should read this testimony. Powerful, honest, and filed with hope, it really ministered to me! I haven't experienced this kind of pain, and I pray I won't, but you never know with a teen in the house! If it happens, I'll always remember the way God called your children back to Him.

What an amazing lesson for us all - and what an incredible testimony you have. This truly blessed me.
Thanks for sharing your dear story--a wonderful reminder never to give up on praying for those we love to seek and find the Lord.

Marilee... another MASTER piece and so real, funny, scary, encouraging, teaching truth to all moms and dads who either think that they got it made but don't have teens yet, or for those whose kids are fighting with the world's demons trying to figure it all out! BRAVO mom... you have some crowns coming (imho)!! Good writing
Thank you for sharing this. I had chills. God works in His way, not ours. You have blessed me today.
