A True Story about a Truly Remarkable Woman

She not only took care of her aging mother but has been faced with challenging family affairs, trusts, Alzheimer's Disease, lawsuits, and the Lord's Grace. 

Human relationships are the most difficult inclusions in our lives. I call them inclusions because from birth we have to have them or we die. Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents all can either cause us joy or grief. If we focus on human beings for our worth, appreciation, love, purpose, and all other quests to fulfill life as it continues along, we will undoubtedly uncover loss, pain, and hurt.

This isn't God’s plan, however, that we experience negativity through relationships. He wants, instead, for us to see and hear Him all about us every day; He wants to be our “audience of One.” He wants to be our all. When we get ready to leave this place we mistakenly call “home,” we will step into the real world where relationships will flourish because they are not tainted with sin. Until that time, He asks us to trust Him.

Perhaps before eternity reveals itself to me, I can reach out to my siblings. At present, they feel no remorse or need to be forgiven, so I will continue to ask God, the One who reveals Himself every day to soften their hearts and save them. Being in the mental state Mom had been in might have given her the ability to forget hurts or maybe not. I can’t forget yet. I want to, but I can’t.

If, by any chance, you experience a loved one with Alzheimer’s, are appointed as trustee, and are sued in the end, I pray that in some way my story will encourage you to look, as I am still looking, at His pres- ence in all the gifts He gives so freely every day.

Reviews: 

"The author cleverly walks the reader through her adventure with life and with God.  From her childhood, she had learned fear.  As the words of her father echoed and reechoed in her mind, she was constantly reminded of her failings.  But God stood by her side as she struggled through a series of very difficult circumstances which included her husband’s brush with death, her mother’s Alzheimer’s Disease, her job as a trustee of the estate and finally her siblings’ lawsuit against her.  With every step of the way, Linda cried out to God who simply reminded her to trust in Him.  Because of her strong will and desire to be in control, it was extremely difficult for her to put the rudder of her life into the Lord’s hands.  But when she found herself mired down in a four-year lawsuit, she became totally broken before her Heavenly Father and gave Him her all. After that, she was totally set free and able to enjoy the peace only He can give."

"My heart is moved and wished as a child of the King I would have had this book as a helpmate."

"The journey to a deep trust in God is not easy and in "Trust Me, Trustee", we not only hear the heartrending experience of a parent in the process of Alzheimer's disease, but also the chaos and tragedy it brought to a family.   Lassiter has written from personal experience as the trustee of her Mother's estate.  She gives a clear insight as to the confusion and pain that sickness and death cause among the survivors in the family and especially her struggle to find God in all the strained and broken relationships within the family.  For all of us who may at some point in life have to deal with a parent or family member suffering from Alzheimer's, "Trust Me, Trustee", is not only helpful and inspiring, but also brings comfort to those who have faced failure and loss - in the end all that is left is trust in a God Who loves us."
