The story of God Gave Us Wings in Connie’s own words:
Not too long ago, I had lost my way. After years of being highly motivated, family-oriented and spiritually enriched, all I cared about was running my successful commercial real estate firm. The joy was gone and nothing else mattered … not my family, not my friends, and not my community.
One day in sheer desperation, I cried out for God to give me back my joy – His answer wasn’t what I expected. I was to write a book called God Gave Us Wings to empower others to move past their fear into faith. Boy, did I try to negotiate, especially when I heard Oprah’s story was to be part of the book. I said, “no way, this just isn’t possible.” Imagine next hearing – “I Am!” This brought me to my knees crying out, saying – “Yes you are!”
When you are desperate, you cry out for help — but to whom? The women in God Gave Us Wings, including me, found their cries answered by The One who said, “I am the way.”
