The story begins on March 28th when Carolyn received a call to notify her that 3 of the Residents had tested positive for the Covid-19 Virus. The Home took immediate measures to impose strict restrictions and isolation procedures as they worked to minimize the spread. As of April 22, 2020, the Home has seen 51 cases of Covid-19, and sadly 24 Residents have lost their lives as a result of the Virus.

As you discover from role models in the Bible, good character is built brick by brick, thought by thought, action by action, and habit by habit on a daily basis. In this book, you’ll find the keys to growing in…integrity, humility, honesty, loyalty, respect, authenticity, forgiveness, courage, perseverance, generosity, self-control and faithfulness. Learn how to build up God’s kind of character qualities and live a life of authenticity.
