    About the book

    Have you ever wondered, Why me?

    I have. When I was a teenager, I looked for freedom, no matter the cost. I wanted things my way, and I broke all the rules. I left home, left school, and jumped on a runaway train headed for failure. Many of my choices resulted in devastation.

    But God …

    I was wounded, but God healed me.

    I failed everyone around me, but God redeemed me.

    I was bathed in guilt, but God forgave me.

    I was abandoned, but God never took His hand off me.

    And when I needed hope, God saved me.

    Life is hard, and people let you down, but there is a God in heaven who knows your pain, and He wastes nothing. What the enemy means for harm God will use for His glory.

    “What an incredible story of obedience and redemption. I cried, I laughed, I could feel her pain. I could definitely relate to the utter brokenness Kim felt, but I loved how Gad had His hand on her the whole time and I loved it when she finally realized it! A heartwarming story of the resilience of the young, and the courage to hear and obey God’s whisper.”
