Growing up in sleepy Augusta, Georgia, Marsha Radford seemed like a typical southern girl. But a glimpse behind closed doors revealed a severely dysfunctional family, from which Marsha fled at the tender age of 16. After years of financial struggle and two abusive marriages, she found success in an unexpected place-the national bodybuilding stage, where she was crowned the 1984 Ms. America Lightweight champion. Yet fame had its dark side, and Radford soon found herself again battling personal and professional heartache. At the age of 48, she suffered a series of supernatural experiences that landed her in a psychiatric hospital, where she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Through it all, she never abandoned her faith in God, trusting in his guidance as she endeavored to make sense of her continued spiritual and paranormal experiences. Bearing It All is unlike any book you've ever read, an inspiring story of grit, determination, and unflagging optimism in the face of great adversity.
