Lorine Newton-Hargrave is the proud author of her first book titled, I Give Honor First to God! Subtopic You Can’t Hurry God! As you read about her life, you will see that she came from a dysfunctional family who lived in the rural South, with 10 siblings. Although she had a hard life, she is happy while telling her story. At times there was violence, pain, sadness, sickness and death. In the midst of it all there were happy times, as well. She tells about happy times with her husband of 59 years and their children; her nursing career and her life taking care of developmentally disabled children. Her life started out hard, but has grown with her being very satisfied with the progress she’s made, and is still successfully making.
Her husband is a successful pastor of a small church, and happy with it. She is a co-owner of an academy that she founded in 1985. Although she is still struggling with the academy, she has helped numerous children and their parents. All of her suffering and hard work has been volunteered.
Everybody calls her Mother Hargrave, because she has a mothers’ spirit. She never thought she would be a Licensed Vocational Nurse, a State Licensed Care Provider for disabled clients (of which she kept for fifteen years), a Pastor’s wife, a District Missionary, and a Co-owner of a State Licensed School. She gave her heart to God at an early age. She loves God, and she loves doing His work, as she says all the time, “there’s nothing like it!” She didn’t have the opportunity to attend school, as she desired, but look at what the Lord has done. Thank You Jesus!
