Thank you to my husband Berk, and our daughters Stephanie, Melissa and Leslie for your love and support. Women of Spirit is dedicated to my mother, Doris Watson McWhorter, who taught that Jesus loves us, God will provide and Love is what life is all about. She was a true woman of spirit. To God be the glory!
