It is with a heart of gratitude that l finish this course; I am thankful for our leaders who valiantly guided and invested into my life; for Mary Ellen, who followed God’s leading in her life to write such a life-changing study; for Hope Edelman, who decided to write about her experiences, having confidence that others will be encouraged along the way; for my study partners, who have helped provide provide profound perspective and insight through this Motherless Daughter study; and for my prayer partner, who has beckoned the heart of my God for His wisdom and guidance on my behalf. Over all these things, I thank my God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who through the power of the Holy Spirit, causes all these things and people to work together for His good and for my joy! Amen!!
