A Light Shines In God's Country: Humorous & Heartwarming Stories From Our Home to Yours
A woman who gives birth to nine children knows what she is talking about when it comes to child-rearing. In her first book, Irene Burns shares funny, sad, and motivating stories about raising children that, without a doubt, will encourage young mothers and fathers. Burns, who recently celebrated fifty years of marriage with husband, Don, chronicles the faith, financial struggles, and details of the obstacles with children she and the family endured, as well as the victory and joy that accompanied each trial and season of their lives. The adventures the Burns family endured would have torn most apart, but the trials and tribulations only drew them closer. Now their family of more than forty stands as a true testament to the love and guidance provided by Irene.
