Prelude to Praise synopsis
This tale of inspirational fiction chronicles the life of Kyla Woods through both natural and spiritual transformations, emphasizing the need to always move forward. From details about her marriage and divorce to her struggle for fulfillment and happiness as she seeks her place and purpose in the world, this story exposes the life of a Christian for what it truly is: a veritable roller coaster ride with valuable lessons embedded in every twist. Scriptural references from Genesis, Exodus, and Revelations help underscore the theme of redemption without succumbing to the triteness often present in Christian fiction. This story confirms for everyone, believer or no, that “a bend in the road is not the end of the road . . . unless you fail to make the turn.” (Anonymous)
