Vanessa Crosson is a big believer in turning a negative into a positive.
When her mother died on the night Vanessa should have been going to her senior prom, the tragedy stole her faith along with her mother. In her own words, she chose a life without God.
Her eventual return to her faith is recounted in her book, Among the Myrtle Trees – Restoring Abandoned Faith. Her inspirational story is the subject of an upcoming broadcast on The 700 Club. A producer and two photographers from the Christian Broadcasting Network came to film the former Marshall Medical South ICU nurse at her home and at the hospital where her mother died.
“It’s all about it being a positive experience,” she says.
Vanessa and her husband of 16 years, Trenton, live in Horton with their three young children. Trenton is currently in Afghanistan serving as security for the American Embassy. She works for Oral Surgery Associates in Huntsville. Her book is available here.
