Item description for In the Fullness of Time by Patricia Fortner Redmond...

Overview
In the Fullness Of Time chronicles the faith journey of author Patricia Fortner Redmond, a Southern African-American woman, from blissful childhood innocence through adulthood. It highlights her heart-wrenching twenty-five year walk through the valley of despair as she navigates the treacherous obstacle course of balancing the rigors of everyday life, while caring for a very hyperactive special needs daughter with multiple developmental disabilities. This story reveals God's abiding presence and divine providence extended to an ordinary person who endures during extraordinary times. It emphasizes the one day at time approach to faith that is available to all, versus seeking an instantaneous miracle that will only be experienced by a few. It shows how she grows spiritually over time under very adverse circumstances. It presents the side of faith that most people face daily. By taking the fear and anxiety out of the passage of time, the reader is encouraged to wait expectantly for a victorious outcome. This book vividly reinforces the need to have confidence in the faithfulness of God and to stand on the integrity of His word.

Reviews - What do customers think about In the Fullness of Time?

Sharing a Journey  Jul 9, 2003
IN THE FULLNESS OF TIME is an intricate blending of a life story with and inspirational message. Patricia Fortner Redmond shares a bit about her life, starting with her childhood in the Deep South and her first encounters with racism. She then goes on to share about her high school sweetheart, who later became her husband, and their life together. Over the course of their long relationship the couple developed a life plan for themselves in which they established goals for their future. Their life was going as scheduled when their first child Jamilah was born, just as they had planned. But as Jamilah got older, it became evident that she was not reaching developmental milestones as expected and ultimately Patricia learned that she had a special needs child. Aside from adapting to the uniqueness of Jamilah's special needs, Patricia felt a great deal of guilt and self-blame for her child's difficulties. What follows is an arduous journey in which Patricia slowly but surely learns to put her full faith in God.

Not only is this book a memoir, but it could also be considered a self-help book. The author shares the ups and downs of her life with a heartfelt sincerity that will touch all readers. As she shares the story of her journey, she includes details about the particular Biblical passages or Christian themed books which provided her with the additional strength, encouragement, and skills that she needed to move on. Although the book would be particularly helpful for other parents of special needs children, this book will truly inspire and strengthen all who read it.

Good  Jun 26, 2003
In the Fullness of Time talks about the author's life, but most of all, her eldest daughter, Jamilah's handicap, which wasn't diagnosed until years later(she has several severe developmental challenges. In this book, she doesn't whine, complain, but she does petition God on her own behalf and believes in a miracle for her daughter. This book is great for those who need a boost of faith as well as for those who have challenges such as Patricia and are looking for help.
