Love is the greatest gift in life. Discovering how to love God and love others daily, as Jesus instructed, continues to be the marathon hurdle Dee can only clear by His amazing grace.
Lord of the Ringless, 40 devotions and Bible studies, fueled by years of desiring marriage, was written to encourage singles to wait hopeful and trusting that a loving Heavenly Father hears every prayer. Despite delay, single’s learn to live without pity or pining. Dee had no idea the birthing of the book would propel her to the husband who produced her Audie-nominated audiobook. Marriage became her miracle, a common feeling to those who have waited decades to find their helpmate. The wait over, the delight abounded. Sammy and Benji, Dee’s faithful companions, also walked the aisle at the wedding they approved 0f… inspiring more doggy devotions.
