This was a wonderful story. And I found it very moving! Mrs. Curtain excellent job as is everything you do! It is not often you hear a woman's point of view in the bible, refreshing and moving. Gave me things to think about as I wonder my own path of enlivenment. Which is lol from a man's point of view. (Boys are dumb.) So our point of view is often a skew. Thank you for showing me a new path that walks side by side with my own.

I loved this story! I can't wait to share it with all of my friends and family. This version of the tale is much more realistic than the original! Thank you Ms Vroman,,,and Jane Curtain.

This story, a retelling of Genesis 22:1-19 offended me greatly. This "Alternative Ending" takes the whole meaning of the story and turns it on it's head. I was deeply offended that you would air such a program.
