Ill. In the Whisperer Test Mary Ann Bird writes, “I grew up knowing I was different, and I hated it; I had a cleft pallet and a speech impediment.

My second grade teacher was a short, round, happy, sparkling lady named Miss Leonard. Each year we had a hearing test and during that test she uttered three words in my ear that changed my life… she whispered, “I wish you were my little girl!”

God says to every person, deformed by sin, “I wish you were my child, and I’ve gone to extravagant lengths to make it possible!”

Romans 5:8

“Love so amazing, so Divine, demands my soul, my life, my all!”


The Father in heaven is the ultimate Good will ambassador, and He commissions everyone who receives His Gift of love to represent Him to others.

“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us we pray you in Christ’s stead be ye reconciled to God.”
