About the book
Wow, life experiences can either make you or break you. Ever since my childhood, I knew that I was a very special person. I knew that I was chosen by God. God has had his hand on me ever since I was planted into my mother's womb. I can remember my experiences throughout my childhood as if they were just yesterday.
My parents had instilled in me that I was a child of the King and that God truly loved me. I have always remembered my mother telling me that I was so special. However, the devil tried to make me think different. He tried to attack me on every end of the stick. I dealt with depression, oppression, suicidal thoughts, low self-esteem, emotional abuse, hurt, and pain from my childhood on to my adulthood. I have never shared this story with anyone. On the other hand, I do thank God for keeping some of the things that I endured in the closet… thank you Jesus!
In order for me to be free, God has told me it's time for me to tell and release my story. It is very hard for me to write this book, knowing that I am airing some of my own dirty laundry. As I am writing this book, I'm going to discuss certain things that were personal experiences in my life. Although I know that this is going to help encourage others, I pray that it will keep someone from going down the same road that I went down. I hope my mom doesn't decide to pull out the old belt, or switch on me. (lol)!
Sometimes we go through things to not only build us up, but to help others. I have to tell my testimony! I want to be able to instill in someone, if I can be healed and delivered from certain things, then so can you. I believe that my story can stop you from down the same road I traveled on. I know that someone is going to be blessed; someone is going to be helped; someone is going to come out of their depression; addiction; oppression; and whatever kind of satanic attack! I pray right now that as you read this book, you open your mind and heart to receive what God has for you. If you have placed your hand on this book, it is meant for you to read it. If God brought me out, he will do the same thing for you!
