Beauty for Ashes - The Story of Tonya Erskine
By Ali Kaun - June 17, 2011
Tonya had just experienced the loss of multiple people in her family... including her mom and dad. Her loss was profound and the pain great... but it wasn't over.

Her daughter, Moriah, tragically took her own life. Darkness, pain, and despair fell upon Tonya like never before. How could God allow this to happen? How could such horrible tragedy strike in such short time? What is God doing... does He have a plan...is He really good?

Beauty for Ashes is a story about a mother's triumph over devastating loss.

"to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness" -Isaiah 61:3
