About the Book

Charlotte has lived over seventy years with many interests. She was encouraged by her father to work hard and persevere, then was told, “You can do anything you want.” This was in the 1940s when it was not acceptable for girls to be strong and athletic. However, through sports, she learned a discipline that would open many doors and make her successful in a variety of areas: basketball, swimming, softball, bowling, tennis, building houses, serving on the governor’s advisory board, founding a drug treatment center for teenagers, bringing Nar-Anon east of the Mississippi River, homeschooling grandchildren, and teaching swimming and tennis. She had many “life is good” days but went through rough times with two sons addicted to drugs and out of control. Because her father gave her the confidence to be able to overcome anything, she worked hard and persevered. In spite of this confidence, she could not defeat this major problem in her life. Come and see how she overcame the challenges she faced, not in her own strength, but through her heavenly Father’s. He “restored the years the locust had eaten,” and she went on to fulfill her lifelong goal. The strength did not come from herself. She couldn’t, but God could get her through all things through Christ who strengthened her.
