Painful Lessons in Her Early Life
Connie transcended her childhood of life-threatening injury, sudden
poverty, a child predator, and seeing her mother abused by an insanely jealous husband through her absolute faith in God and his plan for her life. From the moment her leg was almost severed at the knee, through months of agonizing recovery, and her mother’s poor choices leading to a desperate cycle of poverty and abuse, Connie held on to one fact: God carries us through darkness until
we are strong enough to stand on our own. And, she taught herself at an early age that when you fall down, you need o get back up!
This book is the result of years of meeting women with similar stories of trauma who have gone on to create successful lives out of despair.
