“Through our trials and tribulations, God is building our souls, so when our flesh dies our souls are developed to where God wants them to be for our life in eternity. I want readers to see how my characters don’t just “get through” or try to “get over” the difficult stuff in life; instead, my characters accept the pain that difficult events in their lives cause and they move forward with a renewed sense of understanding in themselves, in life, and in God.”
