This is my story of healing and coming out from under the grip of fear. At the age of 6 my family moved to Nepal where we lived for 3 years as missionaries with Wycliffe. During that time, I had an experience at the airport in Beirut where I was separated from my parents and this caused anxiety and fear to take root in my life.
After our return to the states, I was diagnosed with having a reading and comprehension problem. Because of this, I suffered tremendous teasing from fellow classmates during my elementary years. This brought insecurities, feelings of failure and deep embarrassment. At the end of my eighth grade year, my family and I relocated to a different part of the state and I had a new beginning, although I kept my reading problem a secret. It wasn’t long, though, before my insecurities and failures began to surface.
This story is about choosing to be an overcomer instead of remaining a victim of circumstances. It is about believing what my Father spoke instead of listening to fear. It is about my journey to freedom.

Sally Pickard does a wonderful job of chronicling her own story of the wonderful truth of forgiveness. You will have to fasten your seatbelt as you read her amazing experience, as the Holy Spirit unlocked this truth to her. Be prepared to have your perspective challenged as you hear her experiences of being a missionary with her husband, Maurice (a missionary pilot), and the challenge and sacrifice of living in parts of the world you may have never heard of. You will feel your heart being tugged with compassion and an appreciation of the love God has for the entire world, and how the Lord led her into counseling women who were bound by unforgiveness, which caused them to have a hard time fathoming that God loved them personally.

From the end of the last Ice Age until the end of the War of 1812, Coshocton and adjacent counties have seen the presence of important events and peoples, mostly Native Americans, but also a few crucial missionaries. Archeological records provide the first 16,000 years of human presence and voluminous writings detail the last 100 years of that period. This book describes the area’s entire glorious history in all possible detail until the frontier moved west after 1814.
Drawing on original sources, where available, and some original research, readers will learn about the Native American residents – who they were, why they came, and what they did - and the area’s eventual settlement by pioneers. The principal settlers were Native Americans in the 18th century with Mohawk, Wyandot, Seneca, Delaware and Shawnee present. The words and deeds of their leaders are given from their own point of view, when possible. Their languages are described and meanings of many of the sea of place names they left are derived.

“Why not?” I said to my husband Lloyd, who loved new challenges, nearly fifty years ago as we faced the risks of starting a family business. An adventurous, resilient spirit has been in my family for generations, and still is. With a lot of hard work, a business that started as a secret in our barn became Jayco, Inc., the largest privately owned Recreational Vehicle manufacturer in the United States, that continues today to set Industry standards. Why couldn’t the Golden Rule be the answer for our company values, and be the basis for how Jayco related to its employees, dealers, and customers? “Why not?” Our family continued to grow right alongside Jayco. We were busy and happy. We were using company success to forge missionary partnerships as well as industry innovations. In the midst of great professional success and family happiness, tragedy overwhelmed my life. Death is a part of life, of course, as is suffering, but that does not lessen their blows. Transformed by grief, I wondered why and how I was to live on. But then it was as if God said to me, Why not? I will love you and sustain you, and I experienced in very real ways that I have a God who never leaves me.
