Have you wondered if you were just born unlucky? Even at the early age of three, I knew my life was not "normal." Throughout my childhood, I looked at my friends and their families and their lives, and mine certainly didn't match any of those! Sometimes you really do have to get to the other side to see what God has brought you through. I once heard a wise old man refer to "unlucky families," and I thought for sure that was my niche. I felt like the poster child for unclaimed baggage. In fact I had spent years just trying to recreate my life into one that I wanted. A life that was "normal" and so I learned to just let people think my life was perfect and I had relatively no problems. And then I felt God stirring in the very fibers of my soul with a message--a message I did not want to hear, a message I ran from until I was physically and emotionally exhausted. I could find no peace until one day, I just threw up my hands and said, "Okay, God, You win. I will write the book." Writing a book about your life means having to relive so many things you had hoped to forget. Many tears were shed at the keyboard. This book is for someone. I hope it is you, and I hope you find solace in my words and God's direction. He will truly never leave you or forsake you. Be still and know. He is God.
