Lisa Keck is a friend of mine, as well as a colleague and dear sister in the Lord. Despite all that, I really didn’t know her story until I read The Monday Came. What an inspiration! This is a must-read book, folks. Here, let me have Lisa tell you about it.
I smiled for the camera but by the time the photographer took our picture in 1990 my brother had been an alcoholic 8 years. Our relationship had been severed by childhood abuse long before that. The day our father died was the first time Paul drank on a Monday and alone. After the funeral our mother asked when he was going to quit and he said, “When my father wakes up.” Then Monday Came is a story of tragedy and triumph. I relied on my faith to get me through the tough times. These are my memories and recollections of how God worked in my life to help me forgive the past so I could lead Paul back to Christ and the ultimate rehab center: Heaven.
