My childhood, teenage years, and young adulthood were laced with brokenness, pain, trauma, turmoil, chaos, confusion, dysfunction, abuse, addiction, and despair. All that I endured during my lifetime could have destroyed me, but God, the Father, had His loving hand upon me. He had His compassionate arms wrapped around me. Each and every story you will read in this book was a chapter in my life. Each with a very significant piece to the puzzle of my purpose. One by one, I was being formed into His image and His likeness. He was shaping me and molding me, He as the Potter and me, the clay.
