Shelvie Hutchinson Smith shares her heart in writing this book that reveals some of the most difficult times of her life. Her struggles included depression, spiritual warfare, and the loss of her husband and two sons. Through the victory over these battles, God has given her wisdom to help others find hope. Women throughout the country have been renewed through her women’s conferences and one to one counseling. She served as the director of the local pregnancy crisis center in Oxford, Mississippi and taught Bible classes in the women’s ministry of her church. She now makes her home in Aiken, South Carolina with her husband Herschel Smith. She is the grandmother of Landon and Christin Hutchinson and the great grandmother of Eason James.
Carolyn Reeves, a long-time friend of Shelvie’s, has authored and co-authored a number of books and articles that support Creationism and challenge Darwinian evolution. Her talents for writing were used to edit and help guide this book.
