It is the dream of many to win the lottery, but how many people actually get that lucky? Marie Holmes of Shallotte, North Carolina was that lucky and quite a lot more. However, what seemed like a gift from God that would grant her the financial freedom she always wanted, didn’t turn out to be what she had expected.
Marie Holmes was just a single mom trying to make life for her kids easy and fulfilling. What she didn’t know – she was in for a roller-coaster ride that would change her life forever.
Being a single mom was not easy for Holmes, of course. She frequently attended services at her local church which were run by her pastor, Kevin Matthews. He was a source of strength for Marie and often helped her in times of distress. But she didn’t ever think that their strong bond could be broken.
