I have read her books and I'm sure she has helped many people in her short life. May she rest in peace.

To say that Debbie Ford was a remarkable human being is the very least. She helped countless of people and yet she was afflicted herself. Human beings like her come once in a life time. She was sent by God to perform a certain job and she embraced. I will pray for the family but Debbie is in paradise.
