I am blessed to be a Christian who loves God and lives a happy, grateful life. But this is my backstory. I was once an angry prodigal daughter, a broken, bitter girl from an alcoholic home. I thought I could never change. But God!  - Audrey Marie Hessler

I once lived a hopeless life. But God!

My mother died. My brothers were addicts; my father was an alcoholic. I screamed at my mother during what would turn out to be our last conversation, "No, I don't pray. There is no God who cares about us!"

She said, "Audrey, I will pray you will believe again." And she wept.

It did not happen immediately, but my mother's prayer was answered. She did not live to see it, but now she rejoices in heaven.

I believed again!

The Savior extended his amazing grace toward me. He gave me a choice to receive or refuse his outstretched hand of love and life.

A loving God says you have a choice, too, every day. We each choose bitter or better.

Choose not to be bitter today, leading one down the prodigal road, but live life better!

It's available now on Amazon! THE GIRL WHO LEARNED TO LIVE LIFE BETTER, a True Story to Inspire Every Parent Who's Praying For a Prodigal Child.

This story will inspire broken-hearted parents of prodigals, but even more so, it will INSPIRE EVERYONE to BELIEVE in MIRACLES and have greater faith in a GOD WHO HEARS and ANSWERS PRAYER!
