If you have ever felt like giving up, or that life is too hard, this book is for you. It will encourage you to not give up on God; it will strengthen your ability to see God's hand upon your life, and it will inspire you to cling to the Lord through every storm that comes your way. For a young Nigerian girl named Happiness, life's journey became almost unbearable. She endured refugee status in the Biafra War, an arranged marriage to a man she had never met, being smuggled across the U.S.-Mexican border, experiencing the toll of a physically and mentally abusive husband, standing in food lines, and living in a homeless shelter. Through it all, Happiness learned to draw closer to God and today owns her own business and understands her life's purpose. This is a compelling story of the power of destiny on a life surrendered to God, and what amazing things God will do, if we just trust him. Douglas S.
