"A person who is not afraid to cry in the place of prayer, or a person who is not afraid to laugh in the place of prayer is a person uninhibited in the place of prayer."
Although Elbert and Irene Waddell experienced a host of challenges in their childhood, they overcame their circumstances to become a power couple for God. Elbert came from a long line of alcoholics; Irene was born into poverty, lost her father at an early age, and lived a hard childhood.
In Turnabout, author Dr. Bobby D. Waddell, Elbert's and Irene's son, describes how his parents faced many rough years early in their marriage. He tells how God stepped into their lives and created a turnabout change that allowed them to become a positive spiritual influence to their family, their pastorate, and the many other people who came to know them.
Turnabout narrates the story of a plain, simple, small-town couple who traveled a unique journey in their ministry for Christ, sharing how their actions and presence in life demonstrated what being a Christian is all about.
