Intro: One Family's Story
The Eustis Family
Ann Eustis and Alan Shad were concerned when their first grade daughter Callie could not sleep through the night and crawled back in bed with them. One of Callie’s classmates had been murdered by the mother’s estranged boyfriend. Nighttime brought fear to Callie both for her safety and that of her parents. A year later, Callie was still crawling in bed with them when they started doing FAITH5™.
Within weeks of beginning the practice, Callie was back in her own bed, sleeping soundly through the night. “We thank God every day for it,” says Ann, a professor of education at Towson University, with a twinkle and a tear in her eye. “I really believe this was grace. Perfect timing. This was the model. Callie doesn’t go to sleep lacking now. She goes to sleep full, and that’s just a real answer to prayer. Yes, there was developmental growth, but there really was a spiritual healing.”
