Honoring her father's deathbed request, Linda leads her mother on a road that is littered with perils but sprinkled with pearls of God’s wisdom, mercy, and grace.
The Road to Glory provides a vivid illustration of life in the eldercare system, as blind Miss Sadie faces a multitude of unimaginable circumstances while being cared for in her own home, assisted living, nursing home, hospital, and rehabilitation after a massive stroke. But God’s faithfulness triumphs over Miss Sadie’s often-felt despair when her daughter intercedes to restore her from feelings of helplessness and hopelessness to enjoying life and good conversations again. Packed with guiding Scripture and practical lessons learned, their trying yet inspiring journey illustrates our need for God to lead the way in a world where trials are promised.
Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart. I have overcome the world" (John 16:33), and "I am with you always" (Matthew 28:20).

About this book...
"How to care for our elderly parents is a conversation woefully missing in the Church. Yet, we are given a biblical directive to 'honor our mother and father'. How do we show our aging parents the love of Christ in a tangible way? How can we guide them through some of the most difficult times and decisions of their life? What are we willing to sacrifice for them? In her book, The Road To Glory, Linda Winn lets us walk along with her as she cares for her mother in the last chapters of her life. Her story is real, honest, and sometimes difficult. But through her experience, Linda gently shows us what it means to really be like Jesus. This is one of the most important books I have read in a long time. It should be required reading for the Church."

Linda is at home on Tims Ford Lake in Winchester, Tennessee.
