She was a champion for preaching Jesus Christ and Him only.
Her favorite verse was 1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you

She highlighted a hymn in her hymnal:
Until Then
My heart can sing when I pause to remember
A heartache here is but a stepping stone
Along a trail that's winding always upward
This troubled world is not my final home

But until then my heart will go on singing
Until then with joy I'll carry on
Until the day my eyes behold the city
Until the day God calls me home

The things of earth will dim and lose their value
If we recall they're borrowed for awhile;
And things of earth that cause the heart to tremble
Remember there will only bring a smile
This weary world with all its toil and struggle
May take its toll of misery and strife
The soul of man is like a waiting falcon
When it's released, it's destined for the sky.

But until then my heart will go on singing,
Until then with joy I'll carry on,
Until the day my eyes behold the city,
Until the day God calls me home.
