Consider the Marvels Writings from My 79th YearOctober 2, 2018 By Collegeville Instititute Staff Mary Ylvisaker Nilsen Des Moines, Iowa, Zion Publishing, 2018 Visit this title on Amazon On an ordinary night in early December of 2016, Nilsen’s husband found her unconscious on the living room floor. Months of tests later, her cardiologist declared her a mystery. But the real mystery was the change in her eyes.
