About the Book
Life After... is a compilation of life situations, strategies, and authentic excerpts from men and women who triumphed in the face of adversities. Each author shares transparently, on a heightened level for God's glory and for the reader to know they are not alone in life’s struggles.
Have you ever believed the lie that sweeping the details of trauma and struggle under the rug is fine? Have you ever experienced molestation, rape, cancer, forgiveness, miscarriage, trauma, or chaos? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Life After… is for you! The detailed stories you will find within are shared for the sole purpose of deliverance and complete restoration.
If God brings us to It, He will heal us from it daily.
Be encouraged, there is Life After…
