Born in China during the mid-century war years, Margaret Liu Collins was a female child of her era and her culture, taught to be obedient and not to bring shame to her family. While she accepted Christ into her heart at age thirteen, it was when she found herself in an abusive marriage that she learned to call on God's power through prayer and from that time forward she learned that hers was not a god who wanted her to suffer, but wanted her to prosper financially, emotionally, and spiritually. Through the Holy Spirit, she discovered mercy, guidance, and companionship unlike any she had known. This story is a memoir of her discovery of God's immutable power and love for His children, seasoned heavily with scripture and peppered with the teachings and insights of biblical scholars. Hers is not a Heavenly Father who is punishing and vengeful. Rather, through her life and spiritual seeking, Collins has discovered without question that God is Good.
