R. A. Burns obtained her Master of Science degree in Counseling. Her faith, family and friends are where she places the most value in life. She enjoys serving others, being outdoors, traveling, playing pickleball, kayaking, cooking and sharing time with those she loves. R.A. believes the most gratifying part of life is being a mother and a wife. She was born and raised in a Christian home, but it was not until she walked through a devastating season in her life that she understood the full meaning of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Before that time, she was simply “going through the motions.” This event made an eternal difference in her life. Since that season, she has felt strong conviction to share her story. Her life verse is Proverbs 3:5,6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” This book is R.A.’s testimony.
