Lyza’s billionaire lifestyle leaves no room for religion. She enjoys a meaningless jet-setting existence, keeping busy with L.L. Lane Unlimited, her father’s successful conglomerate, and her mother’s “Save the Orchids” campaign. Little does Lyza know that her lifelong employee constantly prays for her salvation. Be encouraged as Cook’s humble prayers and service throughout the story illuminate God as He works out His plan in Lyza’s life.

Plymouth Rock held a few surprises. Here is the map with an introduction to the site.



This beautiful replica of the Mayflower seems very small compared to the cruise ships crossing the Atlantic today. Although passengers on the Mayflower were not on a pleasure cruise, they were subject to the same elements as the Titanic.

The third tallest statue in the United States, the National Monument to the Forefathers is reported to be the world’s largest granite monument. The monument stands high above the surrounding trees, a granite reminder of the strength and endurance of the Pilgrims.


Kirk Cameron released Monumental, a movie about this historic gem, in 2012.


The monument is inscribed on the front with these words: National Monument to the Forefathers. Erected by a grateful people in remembrance of their labors, sacrifices, and sufferings for the cause of civil and religious liberty.
