"Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle thanfor someone who is rich to enter the Kingdom of God." Matthew 19:24, NIVTurner Syndrome is a chromosomal condition affecting approximately 1 out of 2500 girls. When one of the chromosomes we have as females is missing or damaged. Those with Turner Syndrome, or TS, experience a range of variable conditions. Short stature, webbed neck, infertility, problems with math are some of the descriptions for having TS, which I have. There are many other things that may occur as a result of having TS. Issues with our thyroid; heart, kidneys. The health concerns alone can seem overwhelming at times. If you have TS you know more than this. You know that besides the physical challenges there are social and emotional issues that come from having TS. Encouragement and understanding are so important in keeping a positive, affirmative outlook. This book is here to offer that. Sally Wisner Ott is an Ordained Elder in the United Methodist Church. Diagnosed at age 8 with a genetic condition called Turner Syndrome, she has been reflecting significantly more in retirement than before on how "TS" has shaped her life and faith. Her current age at the time of writing is 72 years. She has been a staff person in several local churches, in various roles. Currently she serves as Pastor of Visitation and Outreach at Covenant United Methodist Church. She enjoys swimming, journaling, game nights with friends, working word puzzles in a daily newspaper, reading and now writing She describes the process of writing her life story as "Exhilarating and Exhausting." She lives in Lititz, Pennsylvania, with her husband, Bruce, and their pet rabbit, Honey Bunny Ott. The author is not rich in material things, but is rich in her love of life, including the animals whom God has created. This gentle camel, Malachi, appears to enjoy being petted, after she read a bit of the Biblical Creation Story. Of course, there is quite a contrast in size between the two.
