Patience, faith, persistence, prayer, and solitude are all shown through various situations in Margaret's life, no matter how bad or scary it was.

God is Good is inspiring and teaches us that we can do all thing through God, who strengthens us.

Margaret Liu Collins was born in China during a time of wartime strife, born a girl in a culture that values males, and later found herself in a marriage filled with ridicule and abuse with two young children to care for. By learning to seek, recognize, and heed God's voice, she was able to welcome the abundance that God offered: a life of spiritual riches, financial abundance, exuberant health, and loving relationships. All of this came about, not because of any exceptional qualities of her own, but because God is Good.
