Are the sins of the father and mother visited upon their sons and daughters?
Undoubtedly damaged, Honey Lamb, like many, is a descendant of an unfortunate legacy of molestation, addiction, murder and bad decisions. For as long as she could remember, she believed the unhappiness she experienced was somehow bequeathed to her. The blood that surged through her veins seemed to be tainted and she often wondered about the DNA she possessed. Experiencing more than her share of misery at the hands of her mother, an alcoholic; the source of all her woes, Honey believed she’d overcome her seemingly checkered path all by herself when she met and married, Mason; a man she loves beyond her own understanding. Unfortunately, unsettling memories emerge to crack the veneer of her seemingly happy existence. Feeling unable to escape what she believed to be her destiny, Honey makes a decision that may have ruined her life. Not realizing God places people in our lives for His purpose, she reluctantly embarks upon a journey that will open her heart to a divine inheritance. Will she accept what God has already given to her or will she shun the invitation of salvation and allow her familial carnal legacy to continue to the next generation? Will she come to understand that Jesus’ blood redeemed us from a self-defeating existence because He became the sinful inheritance for us while at the same time eradicating it forever, giving us a spiritual blood transfusion that would change us all?
s to realize that her family is worth fighting for, and she can’t win this battle on her own. Stepping out in blind faith, putting her prayers for her family and their future in God’s hands, might be her only chance at regaining the life she was meant for.
M. Ann Ricks writes an uplifting and inspirational tale in The Blood Done Signed My Name. The main character, Honey Lamb, is burdened with going through life carrying the sins of her mother. Honey Lamb had a childhood that makes you want to root for her in hopes that she will overcome all of her struggles.
The Blood Done Signed My Name is a book that will stay on your mind long after you put it down. I stopped short of giving this book 5 stars because there are a few parts of the story that are drawn out especially that the ”betrayal’ was not revealed until almost the end. Overall, this was a very good read and lesson on deliverance and how Jesus is the only one that has the power to change our lives. 4 Stars
