About the Book
Two images from my childhood come rushing to mind when I think about the person I am today and why I do what I do. Why am I drawn to sharing my story with people all over the world? The first image is from the first time I was treated like an outcast, and told by many that I will never amount to anything. Having a child as a teenager and out of wedlock is wrong, but not as bad as the names I earned. The second image is from the way my son was treated. Not only did people call me useless for having a child out of wedlock, they transferred that unto him and called him a bastard.
That was so hurtful and destroying emotionally and completely damaged everything I ever had as self-worth. Every time I heard people call my son and I names, it reminded me of what I was not. During that period in my life I was uncomfortable, insecure, and struggling. I was at war with myself. But one day, so tired of fighting with myself, I decided to turn things the other way. I was determined to know why I was created and what my purpose in life is. While on a quest to find out my purpose I started researching the Bible and other inspirational books.
