Wilson's Bookmarks Dec 2014

What does a young wife and mother do when her husband and 3-year-old son suddenly disappear without a trace?

Vivian Churness writes a story that reads like a cross between a detective mystery and a testimony of personal spiritual formation. … It is the story of Vivian's search for her abducted son, and of how her life was changed during the years-long search.

It is all true.

I encourage you to get into the book, and walk through the life and challenges of this remarkable woman … someone who said 'No' to despair, and said 'Yes' to faith, hope, forgiveness and love.”
