Find Your Purpose
My past isn’t as bad as yours but I’m still not really over it, just not sure I can jump the last hurdle. Umm at the age of 14 I was raped on more than one occasion. I was then also followed, stalked, and beaten up for 4 years by the same guy. He got three months community service for what he did. A few years on I fell in love with a guy. After 6 months of trying to trust him and after being together for 15 months, he died of leukaemia. After years of drug abuse, alcohol abuse, homelessness and meaningless accounts of sex to show it meant nothing to me anymore, I went on anti-depressants and went to see counsellors after counsellors. Yet I still find it hard to wake up and want to be here.ReplyDelete
It would be great to have someone who has been through similar situations to talk to and I’m really enjoying reading this book as I felt so alone and like I was the only one.
I look at you and you seem so strong and I honestly can’t believe that you have been through all of this.
You inspire me

I love the fact Angela speaks so openly and honestly, she makes her story really easy to read and relate to, it makes the reader feel more comfortable with the idea that people struggle and possibly more open to talk about their problems.
She's a real help! :)

Thank you for sharing your journey, your story, your pain. After readng your first two chapters, I knew this would be a necessary, life-changing read. You have written this story from such a personal vantage point, as you have shared some very desperate times. Suicide is such a heartwrenching tragedy in families; I sincerely applaud you for allowing us to see your life and your deepest pain. Wishing you every success with this piece, believing it will touch (and change) many hearts.
All the very best,
Now To Him
Thank you Faith, it's wonderful to hear such good feeback. xxxDelete

Here’s a CCRG review.
You are one of the bravest and most trusting women I have met. (Well I haven’t really met you, but I feel like I know you after reading a couple of your books)
Your story is quite remarkable and truthfully, hard to imagine. It is honest and raw in its telling, yet so encouraging. I’m so glad you have come through the dark days and I hope they stay away.
You have found what works for you, and you are sure enough and kind enough to share your secret with others – that being a close relationship with Jesus, getting rest, exercising, eating right, journaling your good days and bad days. Your discipline serve you well when faced with a medical crisis. And you came through with a positive, grateful attitude.
It is obvious God is allowing you to use your early choices and troubles as teaching tool for other girls. I know your story has spoken to me.
I only had one question. When the doctor found the cyst, were you pregnant? Unless it's in chapter five (I read through chapter four) I missed it, you didn’t tell what happened with that pregnancy.
Angela, thank you for telling your story and bringing hope and direction to all those who read your book. Highly starred!
Nothing But The Blood
Thank you so much for such a thorough review. With regards to your questions, I was not pregnant when I had the cyst, my first baby was born and is now 20 years old and serving God as our Creative Pastor at church.
I am so grateful that you took the time to read my book and left such a great review, thank you.
I seriously cannot stress how important these books are!ReplyDelete
In the middle of last year I found myself completely on the floor through a number of life happenings such as long term sickness and deaths of family members. One day I just woke up and did not know who I was anymore.
Hopes journey completely turned my life around and I was able to move, chapter by chapter from the floor to a healthier new me. I am now reading secure on the rock and cannot even begin to tell you how much deeper this series will take you.
Angels your books are incredible, they are inspiring and they are exactly what women need to see themselves as the glorious princesses they truly are.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart and God bless.
Thank you for your comment Laura, I am so pleased that you have found hope. May God richly bless your journey as you draw closer and closer to Him.Delete
