About getting the story just right

If you have a few minutes this weekend, sit down and read these stories. Though each isn't terribly long, the series is more than a quick read -- but I think you'll come away glad you spent the time.

As an editor, it was a pleasure working with Frank Bodani, who is committed to getting each story just right, so it reflects what each family is going through -- so the families will recognize themselves in the story, but also so anyone reading the stories can get to know them and relate.

As Frank wrote the stories, we talked about that each seemed to have its own theme as an undercurrent: one was about endurance, one about hope, one about a blessing. Let me know what you think.
