In the face of injustice, Lillie finds grace to forgive

"We gotta love folks even when they do bad things; that's the only way ta have peace down in the heart." The words little Lillie hears Pappaw say echo down through her life. Born into a family of sharecroppers in the Deep South, Lillie has plenty of opportunities to put this teaching into practice. Through racial slurs, grinding poverty, marital turmoil, and the accusation of insanity because of her boldness for Christ, Lillie faces it all with active forgiveness and stubborn faith. Her life and her lips bubble over with exuberant joy in her Savior, and her testimony displays the miracle of His grace. Because she chooses to forgive, God brings beauty out of her deepest heartaches.
