Problems Are Opportunities

Problems Are Opportunities

Tragedy strikes a family, and the father rejects the mother's entire family. She losses her zest for life, and their daughters, Yvonne and Mary Ellen, live with a fear of rejection. Would their parents reject them, too? Mary Ellen walks away from everything that she sees as unpleasant, and her parents don't discipline her. She later marries, walks out on two husbands, and divorces them. She also rejects two of her children, leading to rejection going to the third and fourth generation. Yvonne tries to avoid rejection by pleasing her parents, but her father abuses her. In the midst of this turmoil, Yvonne experiences God's grace. She now talks to Him about her problems. She later marries a Christian man, and they have problems with finances and her husband's poor health. She realizes that these problems are opportunities to grow in God's grace and experience His faithfulness.Yvonne Posthuma became a Christian at the age of twelve through the ministry of the American Sunday School Union.
