Most people write from their knowledge. Some people write from their experience. And then there are those who are blessed to write from both. Terry is certainly one of these. Her story, what she’s learned from it, and how she shares it, is nothing less than a gift to us all. When you are finished reading Terry’s book, we suspect that like us, you’ll close it, look up, and say “Thank you.”
