  1. Dear Linda,
    A friend of mine gave me the book “21 Days of Christmas” as a gift last week, and this morning I read your story “The Last Ember”. This story was a reminder for me of my own attempt at suicide many years ago and how God saved my life too. Since that time, He has totally flipped-turned-my-life-upside-down in a most wonderful way, and the reminder of that very low point in my life and the subsequent transformation was very encouraging for me today. Thank you, Linda!
    May God continue to bless you bunches as you surrender to His direction every day!

    • Thanks so much for sharing your experience, Dianna. A story like The Last Ember might sound cheesy and unrealistic, but you’re living (thank God!) proof that the Lord really does offer rescue to desperate souls. I’m glad it gave you a chance to remember and rejoice. And I hope it encourages others to act with compassion toward the struggling ones.
      Blessings galore,
      Linda
      P.S. Please share your thoughts on the book’s forum, if you haven’t already done that. There are so many people who need to hear from someone who came out the other side of desperation, by God’s grace.
