Here are a few intimate details about the book's cover. Connie provided sketches for the cover, but it was the talented Deanna First responsible for making her sketches come to life through her illustration. The butterflies on the cover have human faces representing her mother, sister, and herself. The initial sketches depict crying faces, but if you believe in Jesus Christ, then you also believe to be with the Lord is not that of sadness. Butterflies are associated with transition between one lifestyle, or journey into another. While her mother made her transition, so did her daughters make their transition to womanhood to lead the lives she hoped, and prayed to God that they would. The color blue was her mother's favorite color thus the colors of the cover.
