    Cousins James Ransom and Cherie Johnson recall their fearsome Sunday school teacher, Miss Lizzie Devine, the only woman who had more power than their grandmother. Set in the small Florida town of the cousins' memories, this animation resounds with the joy of sharing stories with family.

    ... Although this caricature style venue is laughable, there was a Miss Devine at my home Church, lol... This Lady lived past 100, dieing only recently, and was able to read my book before departing... Thanks for conjuring my memory of Mrs.Turner.



    Peace In,

    ... It was a pleasant surprise to see this particular video from storycorps had so many likes and views:

    Uploaded by storycorps on Aug 24, 2011...
    3,500 likes,198 dislikes

    956,632 views...


    And the big risk taken with a project such as this is pointed out in this comment:

    it bothers me that ppl are calling miss devine a "*****", because that was not the purpose of this story at all. they even said she wasnt mean, just stern. and they admit that they were thankful for their childhood, even with her in it. using such ignorant words on a beautiful story is really pathetic...
