  • overcome anxiety
  • change poor habits and attitudes
  • trust God in times of trial and hardship
  • let Christ have control in all areas of life

    A Silken Thread by Kim Vogel Sawyer

    For readers who love a heartwarming romance and a rich historical setting comes a tale of a young woman with a heavy burden, the International Cotton Exposition, and the pursuit of true love.
