“From Duty to Delight has been instrumental in my major life changes. Sister Mary Ford breaks down reality and keeps our minds from the “what if’s” of life. I now study to show myself approved, journaling my prayers and watching God fulfill His promises. Thank you, Sister Mary Ford, for the life changing experience From Duty to Delight!” ~ Denise Raddle, Classroom Participant
“What a blessing From Duty to Delight is to us! It’s an easy read and thought provoking work that’s designed to help build one’s faith. She invites the reader to think outside the box and view Jesus in a closer realm. I highly recommend From Duty to Delight to readers of all genres.” ~ Lois Snell, Author of “Renaissance of the Soul”, “In His Presence” and “Lineage”
“Dynamic and anointed Intercessory Prayer Warrior! Have you read her book yet? You should.” ~ Beth Bowland, Author of “Polaris”
