About the Book

Two books have been combined, “Scriptures that Have Inspired Me and Given Me Comfort” and “Some Criteria For the Development of Character. This book is written for family and friends hoping they will be further inspired as I am. I am inspired by the magnanimity (the highest descriptive word in the English language) of all Scriptures. The second part is related to the Development of Character. A written definition of a “lady” cannot be done. The complete definition of one’s character cannot be done, but I have developed 67 subjects that will lead one to be of “good character.” The concept in the two parts of this book has made our lives as perfect as perfect can be!
