Planted in the rocky soil of central Arkansas during the early part of the 20th century, Mary Ellen Morgan’s family of hard working farm folks met life’s challenges with faith and fortitude. When her parents made a life-changing decision that brought separation from those they loved most, they continued undaunted to live by their convictions. Mary Ellen and her brothers grew up in the era of the Great Depression, but through prayer, determination and personal sacrifice, they became extraordinary workers for God. Experiencing neither fame nor fortune, Mary Ellen lived a joyful life filled with adventure, and despite detours and challenges along the way, she never gave up on her dreams. You are sure to enjoy this inspirational story that reminds us that we, too, can live our own best lives with courage and hope.
