What to expect

Her quiet strength was being forged and tested in the crucible of life.

If Virginia could have chosen to accept or discard all the changes that came her way, she gladly would have let most of them pass right by. She loves her life on the farm with her husband and children, not far from her parents and her grandparents. But a change that is tearing at her heart is the steady physical decline in Grandma Marty and Grandpa Clark. She cannot imagine their home without their welcoming smiles and their words of wisdom that arise from decades of life experiences and a solid faith in God.

Their lovely daughter Mindy, who has blessed their home ever since Virginia's wayward friend Jenny, Mindy's biological mother, left the tiny child with them, has been encouraged and guided to pray for that mother all these years. When a desperate Jenny returns to reclaim her child, is God answering prayer, or is the worst nightmare any family could face now upon them? Virginia is not sure she has the strength to truly become like gold refined. Will her heart ever find the peace she yearns for?
