A New Attitude

Sheila Rushmore’s decision to bring closure to a past relationship becomes the first day of the rest of her life. It seems that this opportunity to purge presents her with the choice to invite Christ into her life. The feeling she experiences, she finds is not so easily grasped as she makes her way through the mire of insecure friends, family and those appearing as light in her all too consuming darkness.

Not unlike many young women searching for fulfillment in all the wrong places, it seems that Sheila can’t catch a break. Out of a job, homeless and what most would call being down on her luck, she happens upon an unlikely ally. It will be her exposure to the positive dispositions of Eden and those she meets at church that will help her to seek God and who He always meant for her to be. More importantly, it will allow her to see her family and others for who they truly are.

Steppin' Into The Good Life shows that we have choices about our lives and that those choices don't always come with a smooth ride.
