"Countless Blessings" begins on December 18, 2014, the day Princess Rose Taylor, daughter of Johnnie Mae (Taylor) Landris and the stepdaughter of Pastor George Landris, turns sixteen years old. There are big plans scheduled for this sweet sixteen celebration.
So how can one of the best days of her life so quickly turn into one of the worst days of sixteen-year-old Princess Rose's life?
Family is and always have been important. Still, Johnnie Mae Landris finds that during a time when the family should be most pulling together, there's fighting, yet again, between siblings that just shouldn't be. With Pastor Landris by her side, the two of them work hard to help all affected. Will God be able to heal wounded hearts; even those who find it difficult to count their blessings in the midst of heartbreak?
