An Inspiring Letter from a Reader

Dear friends,
I seldom share letters like this, but this one moved me so much, I asked the writer if I might share it with you. She happily agreed, adding "go ahead and use my name." So here it is, inspiring for sure:
"I just wanted to say thank you for the book (Meet Me at the Well). I have had a copy of it for sometime sitting in my bookcase. A little while ago I was going through a pretty rough time with my husband, to the point that we were talking about separating.

It had to be a God-acident that your book caught my eye. I picked it up and started reading and writing and praying for guidance. Through the chapters I was faithful to write down all my thoughts and pray as you directed and one afternoon through tears I cried out to God, "What do you want me to do?" I heard his voice as if He was there right in the room speaking to me and He said, "Go and ask him if this is really what you want?" To my surprise my husband turned and said no, that he loved me, but it was the only way he knew to do as we could not live this way. Too make a long story short, it started us talking, honestly talking, and not just yelling and saying bad hurtful things, and we were able to work it out, and are turning over a new leaf and forgetting the past. Our marriage is the best it has been since the day we said I do.
The book has helped me so much to see me , but most of all it has helped me to see that God loves me and is there with me always and all I have to do is seek Him and he will take care of my needs and bring me through what ever I am going through.
Blessings and love
Elaine Chesser

ps I have a friend that is starting the book, she saw me reading and asked to take the journey also."
We never know what God will do with our testimony of His power and grace at work in our lives. Meet Me at the Well and The Best Life Ain't Easy simply testimonies of His grace and love. Imagine what God will do with your story? Why not tell someone today?

On a recent trip to NC, I purchased "Meet Me At The Well", and began reading it. When I returned home I was so enjoying the book, I wanted to know more about the Author, and where I could find more written by her. Imagine my surprise when I read the cover and found out Virelle Kidder lives less than a mile from my home in Sebastian, Florida!

I shop at the Publix right across the highway from the community where Virelle lives, and can't help but wonder if we've shared the same checkout line?!

There are no coincidences with God. I hope His plan is for me to one day meet this wonderful conveyer of His word!

Dear Virelle
I bought 'Meet me at the well' two years ago at a christian Music Festival. Parachute New Zealand.
I have read chapters of it over the last two two years,but not the entirety. I am in the the process of doing that now. It is very fresh and rich and exactly what I need.
I relate to the struggles and family issues you talk about in your book. I find it so helpful that you have shared and then shown how God has worked and resolved things.It is immensely encouraging.
My Husband has just been diagnosed with a very rare cancer and is presently under going treatment.
I am reading your words every night before I sleep and they are reminding me constantly of Gods Love and what I can do to help myself through this.
Thank you for writing this very good book and for continuing to write.:-).
I shall hunt the rest down.
Best regards Kat Taiaroa
