She remembers living in a small house in Memphis, Tennessee, and going to church with her grandmother while wearing a cute blue dress. When her family moves to Chicago, things change. Although her parents are loving and supportive, she decides to go behind their backs and run with the bad kids. She goes from following her parents’ teachings to hanging out with gangs.
She would spend nights at her friend’s house. The girls would wait until her mother went to work and then run off to 16th Street to see the boys. As she grows, her hangout goes from the streets to the bars. Miraculously, she finds the ministry and then finds God, who supports her through the loss of her son.
Her godly sisters help, too, as she goes from her darkest time into the light of Christ. She lives through difficult relationships and incredible loss to find faith. God gives her the strength. God changes her into the woman He wants her to be. From the roots of a troublesome childhood, she grows into a masterpiece of God.
