Below are links to “Posts” to this Blog in roughly the proposed order they were intended to be read if this book, Surviving December: My Journey Through Faith to Become a Survivor, is bless to be published. Please keep in mind that this is a “work in process”, and as a “work in process”, some of the proposed Chapters have not made it past the rough draft stage and are not ready to be posted. Likewise, as a “work in process” there will be changes as the “Posts” are edit along with the rough drafts. Please check back from time to time as I am able to update the “Posts” and fill in the blanks.

Again, the success of this blog is reliant of each person sharing it with as many others as possible. This experience has shown me God gives us opportunities to make a difference all the time. Often it is the seemingly most insignificant things that can have the greatest impact. This can include simply sharing our experiences or pass along something we have learned, just letting them know they are not alone. Hopefully organizing these “Posts” will help make it easier to navigate and share with others.

So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all…” – Galatians 6:9-10 (MSG)

“I need your help, for I want not only to share my faith with you but to be encouraged by yours: Each of us will be a blessing to the other.” – Romans 1:12 (TLB)

As always, suggestions and thoughts are very much appreciated. It is your continued support and encouragement that has helped make this possible!

God Bless!
