Candid, unflinching, and brave, From Partying to Praying by Rose Shackelford is a raw and unfiltered memoir detailing her inspiring journey of healing from the inside out by God's grace.
Rose paints a vivid picture of living with a narcissistic father and recounts how an abusive boyfriend with the propensity to inflict serious pain causes her to make an impulsive decision. Rose ends up joining the military, which provides a way out of her immediate danger, but does not fix the deep-rooted emptiness she suffers.
Once adjusted to military living and traveling the world, it seemed like Rose had it all: independence, a steady job, a string of lovers; but something was always missing, something that a life of service could never fill. However, all that was about to change when she met 'the one'...or so she thought.
Love, marriage, and having her first baby did not satisfy the profound void in her soul. As if her suffocating worthlessness wasn't enough, a shocking revelation of infidelity throws her life into utter devastation. Their shattered marriage is the catalyst for a series of events that involves lies, heartbreak, and surprisingly, salvation.
See how Rose learns to live and love through her faith in God. Her journey through sorrow, anguish and betrayal are merely steps on a stairway to God's rooftop, which, for Rose, has a perfect view of a future that looks really bright. This inscriptional story is for those who pray for a way out of the darkness of depression and yearn for an eternal joy.
"Never in a million years did I think God was the answer. He was."
