My heart is to share my journey from a life of brokenness to one of restoration and freedom. The Lord, who is the Potter, alone deserves the praise for the transformation that continues to take place in my life. People sometimes say to me after I've shared my experiences that they would love to have my testimony. And I think, really? To have my testimony, I first had to survive unspeakable cruelty; things that no one would ever want to have happen to them. For the longest time I was a mess, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and I believed that my life was a grave disappointment to God. The real miracle is that God chose to redeem my life and turn it around to bless Him and others. And He can and will do this for everyone who calls out to Him and receives Him. I want this book to glorify God alone; that He will be seen through my transparency and be lifted up. With people coming to Him as a result, everything that has happened in my life is worth the cost.
