Future Full of Hope
Evora, a single mother of three young girls, once wondered if she had a purpose. She asked God, “Why am I still living?” A car accident that left two of her daughters in the hospital was her wake up call. During her daughters’ miraculous recovery, Evora realized she had to “spend more time with God through God’s word, prayer and journaling” to regain her purpose. As a result, she pursued a strong calling to write. Evora faithfully wrote late into the evenings (after a full day of work and time with her children) until she had an entire book. The main character ran homes for women who needed help rediscovering their purpose. Amazed by her own foresight, Evora explained, “I was writing about transitional homes before I even knew they existed. I never imagined I would find myself living in one.” Read the full story here.
