My Journey From Florida To Alaska And Back Spanning 73 Years In a remote Alaskan village above the Arctic Circle, I came face to face with my human limitations. Being a credentialed woman minister, along with my husband who was called to serve as a missionary, I was chastised by well-meaning Christians who believed I should serve in a more submissive role, or I should not be a woman minister, period. I was bothered by these comments, but they didn't stop me because my husband supported me one hundred percent. I was and continue to be a strong personality with lots of perseverance and faith until one day I was so lonely and I cried out, 'Lord if only my mother were here, so I could talk to her, woman to woman.' He replied instantly, 'If your own mother had lived, she would have spoiled you, and you could not take the hard places here.' I began to see my earlier life was training for later challenges. That brought back memories of my childhood... A story of how God led one woman and her family from sunny Florida to remote villages above the Arctic Circle in Alaska as missionaries and back again. A story of courage, faith and obedience of one woman and her family, intermingled with stories of God's intimate fellowship, guidance and answered prayers.
