"I would hope that people would be able to use this book as a guide to fulfilling God's wishes in their own lives," states the author. "This book is filled with Scripture references that can bring peace, hope, love and understanding to the reader in a time of crisis. I wish for the readers to know that God is with them, and will guide them if they only subject themselves to His calling."

Randy L. Hord shares on his expertise, saying, "The thing that qualifies me most to write this book is that is was my mother and my experiences that I chronicled.

I want you to call it Journey of Praise. I want you to tell everyone what I have done for you.'"
