It was something she had in the back of her head for a long time: writing a book about her life story. A lot had happened in Barbara Vinson’s life, so simply putting pen to paper would take time.
However, her story was one she knew would inspire people facing trials like her; thus, her new memoir, A Life of Faith, was written.
One such example is her first marriage to a man who did not believe in God, unfaithful to their wedding vows, and leaves her alone with two children to raise. In addition to that, both children are born with congenital issues that require them to need wheelchairs as they grow older. Nevertheless, instead of letting such problems plague her mind, she uses it as an opportunity to simultaneously learn and celebrate her faith.
As a mother, a teacher, and a writer—Barbara Vinson offers a hopeful read to the audience as she goes through her life. Her ability to touch on faith, pain, and uncomfortable truths inspires readers without alienating them as she provides encouragement effortlessly. After reading about her new love and life with Brock, it’s safe to say that her loving influence and care have strongly inspired her kids to stay joyful.
That said, “A Life of Faith” is an easy-going read with golden lessons. Readers who enjoy light reads, inspirational messages, and honest-but-simple lessons on life will indeed find this read golden.
