DeLash writes, “My name is John Goodwill, and, with grandson Frank, this is the story of our cross-country trip to find my daughter, Faith. Forty-five years ago, I ran away from the pain of her mental illness and live with a secret, broken heart. Faith just turned sixty years old, and I wonder absolutely everything about her.
As a fun surprise, Frank and I meet curious characters who share raw truths, helping tear down my walls of denial and shame.
‘This homeless artist is like shattered pieces of glass from a broken goblet’ (Just Bob).
‘She didn’t know what was happening to her son. Mom always believed I could learn to live with who I am’ (Sea Wind and Gang).
‘God works in mysterious ways. We are sent a helper, support in most unlikely packages. This one comes with short, frizzy orange hair and a nose ring. What else could I need?’ (Josie).
‘The cure is a shot in the eye? Not for me! Get my pants, Frank, we are out of here’ (Grandfather).
‘We get to a crossroad. We can give our dreams one final push. Then we know deep inside we are finished’ (Nurse Hatchett).
‘Judgment? To some, I look more like a cartoon character than a servant of God, yet I carry the Lord’s spirit, just like you’ (Chaplain Charlie).
Our lives, if you could go back and choose one moment in time to do differently, would you? When the storm is calmed, what is left in your clear reflection upon the still waters now?”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Debra Marie DeLash’s new book is a soulful tale and testament of God’s mercy, love, and forgiveness, as well as his generosity with second chances for the lost and forgotten.
