Summary[edit]

Connie’s world is turned upside down with an unexpected phone call. Whit, Eugene, Wooton, and Penny are there to support her as she figures out what it means to trust God through times of suffering.

Plot[edit]

Life is going very well, and Connie is cheerfully chatting with Mr. Whittaker when Wooton calls on the phone, giving Connie alarming news. Connie's mother, June Kendall, was taken to the hospital in an ambulance!

Connie arrives at the hospital only to be told that her mother had a heart attack and did not survive. Unbeknownst to Connie, her mother had been on medication for years due to heart trouble but never told her.

Thankfully Mr. Whittaker had been fully informed by June Kendall, herself, that she was sick and gave Whit her will and important papers for safe keeping. Connie calls her dad, Bill Kendall, with the sad news and has the usual difficult encounter with him.

At the end of this first episode, Bill Kendall shows up at Whit's End looking for Connie, but he is not alone. He has Connie's half-sister, Jules Kendall, with him who Connie has never known about! She gets mad and runs off to her room.

Now, it is up to Connie's faith and her good friends to see her through this crisis.
