I love the unusual characters and circumstances in Mary Connealy’s stories! The narrative and conversations are always laced with such humor!

As my grandma aged, she began to have problems with her eyes. The doctor warned that she had macular degeneration, which could lead to blindness. Instead of being frustrated or scared, Grandma had a plan. She began to memorize, not verses, but chapters and entire books of the Bible, to […]
