All over the world there is poverty, and more often than not, poverty is accompanied by a feeling of hopelessness. For one impoverished young girl from North Carolina, dressed in clothes made from feed sacks and wearing shoes held together with duct tape and cardboard, this hopelessness would turn to hope thanks to a man called Jesus.
In Beyond Cherry Mountain, author Lily Brassica shares her heartfelt personal testimony of how she found hope, faith, and inspiration in Jesus. And although life remained a struggle even after she learned about Jesus and his heavenly Father, this inspiring young woman knew that Jesus also started from humble beginnings, encouraging her to work hard, keep the faith, and never stop trying to improve her situation. As she clawed her way out of poverty one paycheck at a time, she continued to sacrifice, eventually becoming a cosmetologist and sharing Gods love with everyone who sat in her chair.
Through poverty, personal problems, and health issues, Lily Brassica, stayed focused on the one thing that truly mattered to herspreading the feeling of hope to the hopeless and inspiration to the uninspired, as she used her styling chair as a pulpit to laugh, sing, pray, and cry with people from all walks of life. We could all use an inspiring word from time to timewhat better place to be inspired than when you are sitting in a chair blessed by God
