Two years ago when my son started talking about going to college I didn’t have a clue what to do or how to help him. Another parent referred me to Mrs. Grant (now Dr. Grant), an experienced and caring parent, who sat with us and explained the basics of the college admissions process. She assisted my son with completing college applications, the financial aid packet and the works. My son and I will never forget her. We are constantly in touch with her about his progress. He is now a graduate student at  Garrett Evangelical Seminary , Evanston, Illinois majoring in music education and doing well.”

“I am so thankful for Dr. Grant’s help. Even after the end of my first year in college, I was undecided about what to major in. She assisted me with career  interest assessments, such as the Personality Mosaic and Kuder, in choosing a program that interested me. She also told me about the importance of community service when applying for college scholarships.”  Kiera is now a Certified Occupational Therapist, and Coordinator for the Clare Bridge Program  at Brookdale in Greenville, SC

Built to Last...My Story chronicles the life of the writer who was reared by her mother and loving grandparents. She never knew her father, who drowned as a result of a freak swimming accident a few months before she was born. Raised in a God-fearing, loving family but with little money, she was determined to succeed and be the first in her family to graduate from college.


After a successful marriage (but then losing her husband after a long illness), obtaining her doctorate and raising two successful children, this book is written to enlighten and encourage the reader. You are invited to follow along through the hills and valleys of her life.  She learned the value of not folding in but blossoming out. The resilience to depend on faith, hope, and trust in God gave her the strength to endure.


Sometimes, we tend to focus only on what is going on in our lives. It is amazing how helping someone else with their troubles, helps the helper to keep going. God's word over and over again teaches us to help others. We must remember that He did not promise us that every day would be Sunday, but that if we trust Him and never doubt He will surely bring us out. ". . . at the dawning, in the morning, joy will come." Jesus said, "If you love me, feed my sheep."
