“God loves you, Meredyth, and wants to use your abilities to bless others as well as yourself. Even if you don't feel useful, you can be.”
Dawn Crandall, The Bound Heart

“I believe my using the talent He's given me is His will for my life. Why else would He have bothered giving it to me?”
Dawn Crandall, The Hesitant Heiress

“You just have too little faith, Estella...in yourself and in God. Don't assume that because He didn't give you one thing you wanted, He isn't ready to give you something else you might want more. He knows our desires better than we do, after all.”
