I don't even know how to start this. So I guess I shall just start from the beginning.
I'm 16 year old Christian gal. I feel Christ has made me for a purpose and for the past year I've been struggling to find that purpose and to put it to use. Sometimes I get frusterated at times because I feel I am not doing the right thing or enough-I seem to just feel empty.
Every year for Christmas I get a book though. My parents know I love reading books of faith as of last year I got the C.S. Lewis books as I may say adore to death! This year I got "Under the Overpass" and well I read the back and it did sound interesting. So I've just returned from Christmas mass at church and I sit down and start reading-it's about 2 oclock. Next thing I hear "Dinner time!" and I look at the clock and it reads: 4:30. I was so devestated it was dinner because I was about thirty pages from the end, but thus is Christmas I went and ate a thankful meal.
After a nice dinner talk about the book I came back to read the last thirty pages. Words can't even describe. It's one of the most powerful books I have ever read and it just amazed me. It seriously amazed me. It was such a journey and I think it's wonderful youre able to share it with the rest of the world.
I'm a growing Christian and this has helped me grow so tall. Of course I am not done growing nor will I ever but my emotions went crazy-I can't even count how many times I cried, even the happy and amazing parts I still cried for you.

I want to thank you for writting. Your words mean a lot to me. Questions were answered that I have been asking for years-because of you. Your journey has been a poweful inspiration for me and you don't know how much that means to me!
I wish the best wishes in the world. May God ALWAYS be with you and love always surround you.

With His Love
-Joan
