About The Book

For years, I have heard real-life stories from women in the midst of a life storm. Their stories have been heart-wrenching because of powerful feelings of hopelessness. They have experienced tragic losses, severely broken childhoods, rebellion of many kinds, abortion, sexual abuse, abusive relationships, broken marriages and many other desperate situations.  

So often, hearing someone else’s story with similar experiences created hope. These ladies share their stories with God’s grace.  No circumstance in your life is beyond restoration and healing!
