I have started a new Christian book series which I am calling “Heart & Soul”. It is about a mother and her three daughters. I have always wanted to write a book about sisters since I have two sisters and have lived through the emotions of what that means. When I started this book series, I had in mind it would be about the relationship between these three sisters. However, after developing the story line, I realized there was someone very important missing– the mother.
Yes, I needed a mother to be a part of this story. Without a mother, one cannot truly understand the dynamics of the ways in which the three sisters’ lives intertwine. The mother sets the tone for the story, as mothers do for most families.
It takes a strong woman to mother girls, and an ever stronger woman to mother sisters. In this book, you will meet one of those strong women in Coranelia Mae Tucker Ingram, known as Nelli. She not only faces the challenge of raising three headstrong daughters, but, due to circumstances beyond her control, she finds she must do it without help from their father.
As Nelli faces hard times, she finds her strength in God. She holds the Bible verse “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” from Philippians 4:13 in her heart. She puts her absolute belief and trust in God which brings her back from the brink of despair. Her faith guides her through the difficult times she faces as she raises her daughters.
Over the next few days, I will introduce you to Nelli’s daughters. Hope you will stay tuned for more!
