After a pandemic and a dying business had changed everything, Mandy McCormick began reflecting on her life. Her memories take her back in time to when she was a small child then a young girl who grew into a beautiful young woman. Having kept a journal since the age of sixteen Mandy begins reading her own words capturing old memories of her mother, father, sisters, and brothers. Mandy relives in her mind the numerous people who have inspired her throughout her life. She looked to her Kindred Spirit, and the Holy Spirit for guidance when her faith is tested by the turmoil she felt when trying to understand the meaning of death and the loss of people she loved. The story addresses truths about tragedy, teenage pregnancy, alcoholism, the joy of falling in love, giving birth, raising children, and becoming a grandparent. Each chapter is its own story woven together, which tells the story of an ordinary life that has never been ordinary at all.
A heartwarming story of faith and finding, we may all have something in common with this Spiritual Journey of an Ordinary Girl.
