Holding Onto Faith
Faith tested and lost. Lives in turmoil. The Easter season is a celebration of life renewed, of the resurrection. It is also a time when Christians look deeply into themselves and when troubles can seem far worse than they are.
Renewal of Faith is an anthology filled with stories that explore the human condition and the ability of those within the pages to hang on tightly to what they believe in. Each of these stories is a reflection of the authors’ belief systems, of their courage in approaching trouble without being afraid to lean onto their faith.

The Story of Faith and Courage
Some things can be changed
Will Melinda discover her inner strength?
Faith tested and renewed in many different ways. An abandoned child; two people must trust all will turn out right. A family moving west following bigotry. Hope lost; a yearning to believe. A return home to discover faith. Faith and renewal versus loss and grief. Her rocky path leads her home. A teen struggles for answers.
April Erwin, Eden S. Clark, Donna Patton, E.B. Sullivan, J.E. & Carla Holling and Jeannie Anderson, Leah Hamrick, and K.C. Sprayberry present stories of strength and hope, of struggle and desolation, of returning to what has always sustained them.
Slouched low behind the wheel, she watched Carl Reid climb out of his black Jeep Cherokee. The sun had already set and the light was quickly fading, but she could tell he still wore his navy blue Justice Fire Department Paramedic uniform. He looked like the hero she remembered from so long ago.
He pulled two sacks of groceries and a duffel bag from his backseat and carried them up the short driveway and inside his home as if they weighed nothing. Lights appeared one window at a time in the small cottage as he moved from room to room.
She scanned the quiet tree lined street for the ever present smoke gray Lexus that haunted her. Had she really managed to shake him? Or was he lurking just out of sight, watching her every move? She had to take the chance, it was now or never. Taking a deep breath she slipped out of the Intrepid, grateful she’d disabled the interior lights. Opening the rear door she reached inside for her own precious cargo.
