"If it didn't have a beautiful ending, my story would be too painful to tell."

Addicted to alcohol by ten years old, a young girl's life was in shambles. As an adult, she sought relief from personal pain, used street drugs, gambled, and sought love and acceptance through homosexual relationships. Due to abuse from others and her own poor choices, she also suffered from serious health issues. After seeking professional counseling, help from rehab centers, and the use of pharmaceutical drugs, she still felt hopeless. Longing for change and feeling powerless to achieve it, Teri sought God's help as a last resort. She experienced many miraculous changes in her life. Because of God's power, she "turned over a new leaf."

Teri Leef is a survivor of childhood abuse, forced addictions, and poor personal choices that were influenced by traumatic childhood experiences. Teri tells her personal story and encourages others to make their way out of brokenness, hurt, and pain. She regularly shares her story of hope and faith. Teri loves reaching out to others through missionary work, both regional and international.

A true story of how a woman survived terrible things and became a stronger person. It is a story of strength, courage, and how she became the amazing person she is today. Most people would have crumbled under the tortures this woman endured, but she found a way to grow from it and by sharing her story with others is giving other women and/or children in the same position hope for a better future as well as a possible way to find the strength that she found through God.

An incredible true story of deliverance from a life of despair and heartache. It tells of the horrors a child endures in their own home where you think there would be peace and safety. Yet there is utter chaos, beyond what you can only imagine. It is only by God's grace and mercy that this lady has her sanity. This book made me so thankful for my own childhood. Purchase this book and I guarantee it will be worth your time to read. You will see how God can deliver you out of any circumstance you may be facing and give you victory thru Him. Oh what a testimony this dear lady has for the Lord and what a mighty way He is blessing her life and using her to further the kingdom of God.

A heart-breaking yet beautiful story of how God saved a child from a life of despair. He turned this lady's world around when she called out to him for a sign. Slowly thru out her life she looks back now and sees everything that he walked with her thru. Knowing her as a personal friend is truly an honor. He can turn any ones shambles into a beautiful ending. We only have to trust in God and stop and listen to him. He wants to spend time with All of us. May your story travel near and far and be a encouragement to All who reads it.
