If you ever question God’s ability to redeem whatever He chooses, regardless of how horrific it is, Patti Davis wants to lay your doubt to rest.
As a child, Patti has a rage-aholic mother, struggles in school, and suffers both physical and sexual abuse. But when a neighbor invites her to participate in a children’s program at their church, something changes. This local church, filled with complete strangers, soon becomes a sanctuary from her chaotic and unpredictable home life. It is a place where, for a few hours a week, she feels safe.
In spite of being under God’s protection, Patti’s adult life is a series of struggles. Her marriage to her high school sweetheart leads to heartache. She receives a devastating health diagnosis, followed by a life-changing car accident. But even through health, relationship, and financial hardship, God remains faithful in her life.
For anyone who wonders what purpose God has for their troubles, this gripping testimony of a woman who has received comfort in the midst of wounding, and a new outlook during severe trials, will forever change their perspective on adversity.
