Length: 176 pages3 hours


Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Lauren was raised in a good home by kind, hard-working, God-fearing parents. However, this did not guarantee her a pain-free life. At the age of sixty-eight, she finds herself looking back over two failed marriages, each one fraught with addiction and betrayal. Her dangerous relationship with alcohol has plagued her for years, and an ingrained aversion to sharing emotions keeps her pain buried and festering far beneath the surface of her coping mechanisms.

However, on the other side of fear, freedom awaits. Walk with Lauren as she uncovers this universal truth: regardless of how badly you have been hurt, or how terrible a life experience may prove to be, you are able to survive it through forgiveness and love. There was hope for her, and there is hope for you, too.
