Thicker than Water is the story of a little girl's journey from an eastern Kentucky farm to motherhood in the heart of Texas. Raised in a big family, number six of seven children, she learns to face her fears and finds a place in her hardworking family. Determined not to disappoint her daddy, she develops a plan for coping with the farm animals, the dark, and the things that lurked beyond. Being a crybaby was not an option. Her plan became an attitude that worked well through childhood, marriage, motherhood, and loss. But when it came to the ever lurking possibility of diabetes, the coping mechanism became a "copping out" mechanism. Even the diagnosis of gestational diabetes before the birth of her third son was not enough to deter an "I'll just worry about that later" attitude. Overcoming bad habits was slow and painful. Damage was done in efforts to lose weight and control her disease. After years of struggle, she finds success by realizing who she is in Christ and learning that she could go to her Heavenly Father with anything. She finally discovers asking for help does not equate to being weak or being a crybaby. Through her weakness, she becomes strong.
