The crushing pain of seven years of unanswered prayer for a child.  A miraculous adoption story, followed by unforeseen challenges and heartbreak.

Barbara Bras begins her memoir by sharing God's answer to her prayers and the difficult times that followed.  Although God does not provide an easy fix, the intricacies of God's plans reveal themselves to her, and she relives her life in a new light.

Bras then recounts the stories of her grandfather Arshag and her grandmother Gulle, survivors of the atrocities of Armenia in 1915.  Arshag, sent to South America for his protection, returns as a soldier of the Armenian Legion to fight for his country.  Gulle is the only member of her family to survive the death march into the desert. Through God's grace they find each other, marry and move to America in 1921. Bras is their first grandchild.

The final section of the memoir follows Bras as she marries and moves to Hawaii, only to return as a single mother to teach school in a small town.  It is there she finally realizes that God has provided her with protection and direction. Bras discovers that once we truly surrender our will to God, His plan always produces blessings beyond our wildest dreams!

About the Author:

In February 2015, Barbara Bras left a long career in the corporate world to pursue her dream of serving God. Unsure of exactly how to do so, she knew that her first step required sharing the amazing way God blessed her throughout her life. Frustrated with inadequate past attempts to share her life-story, Barbara sought a writing method unencumbered by the obstacles previously encountered. 

In March 2015, she attended one of Tom Bird's Writing Seminars and experienced a life-changing event. As she wrote continuously during the three-day seminar, the story of her son's miraculous adoption and the challenging years that followed spilled onto the pages, ultimately leading her to rediscover her very existence. Following her grandparents' remarkable survival and immigration to the US leads Bras to tell the rest of her story, concluding with her search for purpose and true love. 

During the months that followed the completion of her memoir, Barbara realized her life's new purpose. Captured by St. Paul in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, Barbara now views her writing as a tribute first to the God who comforts and strengthens all of us in hardships and trials, and second as her mission to encourage others. Her first novel, scheduled for release in early 2016, seeks to inspire and encourage. 

She calls Scottsdale, Arizona home, but spends as much time as possible visiting family in Wisconsin.

Review:

"Beautifully written, this poetic narrative, with its unexpected twists and turns is a compelling argument for the benefits and rewards of a life of trust in God."
~Walter Sava, Ph.D., Author, Community Leader

 "Barbara's book should be on everyone's bookshelf and it makes a wonderful gift."  ~ Marsha Petrie Sue, MBA, Professional Speaker, Executive Coach, Best Selling Author

"Miracles don't come with guarantees, but Barbara's engaging memoir demonstrates that God's plan is amazingly greater than what we envision for ourselves. Her candor and emotional vulnerability will especially touch readers who have struggled with unanswered prayer, and who hasn't? Every reader will connect with her powerful story!~Bestselling Author and Literary Shaman, Tom Bird

"The truth that God protects and leads his children, often in spite of ourselves, is beautifully woven into the narrative. Once read, the book deserves to be shared. For some it will be inspirational, for others educational; and for all, a wonderful read. I loved the book and I hope Christian bookstores everywhere display it prominently." ~ Reverend Harlyn J. Kuschel, Pastor emeritus.
