This lovely story describes a young woman whose faith is more than mere words; it is a living faith—one that makes a favorable impression on all who know her.
Twenty-one-year-old Myra Sherwood sets aside personal desires when she clearly hears the call of duty to offer herself to God for the benefit and blessing of five orphan children. Myra’s prayer is to be unwavering, to act from principle, to be consistent, patient, and forbearing, that her life might cause those in her care to love Jesus. If she ever felt that her life of self-denial was a grave burden, they never knew, for her gentle, loving ways and cheerful spirit betrayed no sign to them.
In every family, life has its ups and downs, and jealousy, pride, and selfishness can suddenly wreak havoc in a peaceful home. But those dark times allow the love and forgiveness of Christ to shine brightest.
