Though born into poverty, author Wanda Berry has led a very blessed life. In this memoir, she shares the details of her life and family and discusses what has made it special. In Do You Want to Stay, or Do You Want to Go? Berry tells of her birth in North Little Rock, Arkansas. A twin, she was the last of eight children. She tells of the death of father when she was two years old, of living in a housing project and constantly being hungry, of eloping with her future husband Tommy to California in 1956, and of the birth of her first two children. But most importantly, Berry narrates the very special experience she shared with God during the difficult birth of her third son. She describes how she saw God, felt his peaceful presence, and how he talked to her and asked: Do you want to stay or do you want to go?
