Country music singer Julie Roberts was exactly where she'd always wanted to be. Her debut album was an instant success, her song "Break Down Here" was a top-20 hit on the Billboard charts, and she performed with some of the most beloved musicians in the industry.
Then, onstage in the middle of a set, her vision blurred, her hands went numb, and she felt electric shocks running up and down her back. Julie kept the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis a secret, not wanting to damage her career. But as her life continued to unravel, her dreams--along with most of her worldly possessions--were swallowed by the rising waters of Nashville's hundred-year flood.
Julie's story is a master class in overcoming adversity through determination, hard work, and strength. More importantly, you'll be inspired by the way faith can lead to joy in any circumstances. Julie knows what it's like to be knocked down. But she's learned to never stay down. And she's discovered that God can use our toughest moments to shape us into the people we were always meant to be.
