  -     The Faithful Way book by Cynthia Heald, Hardcover

Cynthia was born in Houston and at age twelve accepted Christ as her Savior. It wasn’t until she was twenty-six that she came to understand that He was also her Lord. As Cynthia realized the love and supremacy of Christ, she permanently placed her hand in His and asked Him to take her life and lead her on His chosen path.

A favorite verse of Cynthia’s is John 15:5. Jesus was teaching his disciples in the upper room before his arrest. He emphasized the importance of staying connected to Him – Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.

Cynthia is amazed at the path that God has chosen for her. She never intended to write or speak and yet God has graciously chosen to teach her through His word using the discipline of writing Bible studies and books.
