"The Gift" - Rose shares, 'I thought I was good enough to make it to Heaven on my own merit, not realizing that salvation is a gift of God through faith and His marvellous grace.  I had not given my life to Christ or even realized I was a sinner.'


“Such Love”- About realizing her need of a Saviour and her decision to accept His sacrifice and His great love for her, personally.


"Tomorrow" - Diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer Rose started to think about death and heaven.  We make plans for our lives only to realize they didn't turn out the way we planned because God had something else in mind for us.
