When Jesse Barlow escaped to Hollywood, he hungered for
fame—but eleven years of failure result in a drug-induced
suicide attempt. Revived at death’s doorstep, Jesse
returns to his Ohio hometown to make amends with his
preacher father, a former love, and Jesse’s own secret
son. But Jesse’s renewed commitment becomes a baptism by
fire when his son’s advanced illness calls for a sacrifice—
one that could cost Jesse the very life he regained. A
story of mercy, hope, and second chances, From The Dead
captures the human spirit with tragedy and joy.

Re: From The Dead
My mother has had MS for over 25 years. She has outlasted many others diagnosed with the same condition. She remains active in her 70's and has a joy for life many folks are lacking. Today is her birthday.

I've always been inspired by Helen Keller. I read her life story as a child, then reread it as an adult. How she made it through life with her disabilities, and accomplished so much with her life, I find simply amazing!! She was headstrong, and let nothing stand in her way. I've patterned my life after her to a degree, especially after becoming disabled myself. I've adapted to my new "normal," and try not to let obstacles stop me.

My mother is an inspiration. A cliche but none-the-less.

My grandmother is my inspiration. She is 95, still works 20 hours a week at the elementary school, is active in her church, plays bridge every Thursday and Eucre every Tuesday. She cooks extra when she cooks and freezes so she always is able to throw a meal together for whomever drops by. She had nine there for Easter this year! She loves to cook and takes part in bake sales at church, etc. She still drives, but not at night.

I am at my age, still amazed at what people go through and come out the stronger for it.

My paternal grandmother was quits
the woman. She held the family
together through the Depression. She
met my grandfather when they were
both working at the mill. She used
scraps from there to make quilts for
her children's beds (I still have 2 or 3
of them). They weren't fancy quilts,
just squares, but they did the job. She
always had a garden and canned her
own vegetables. She survived my
grandfather by about 8 years. She
stayed in her own house and lived
alone until the end. She did all her
own house work, yard work, and kept
the vegetable garden. I can't ever
remember her being sick. She was
having an irregular heart beat so they
put her in the hospital for tests. The
tests were fine and they were going to
send her home for Christmas. She was
standing in the hall talking to the
nurse when she fell into the nurses
arms, dead. It was actually a good
way for her to go. She led an active,
healthy life and didn't have to suffer as
an invalid and lose her independence.
