How will you respond when tragedy strikes?

When life-altering tragedy strikes, it leaves us reeling in emotional or physical pain. So how do we get through it? More importantly, how do we move beyond simply surviving the storm to growing stronger because of it?

Pain and loss are inevitable in life. Even so, the heartache and fear we experience as a result often causes doubt and feelings of hopelessness. Trying to make sense of our circumstances, we ask . . .

How will I ever get through this?

What will become of me and my life?

Where was God when this happened?

At seventeen, Charity Freeland miraculously escaped a horrific car accident only to discover a life of unknowns awaiting her. Severely burned and disfigured, Charity fought for her life-and won. Along the way, she discovered that the same fears, lies, and doubts that tried to define and confine her to a life of mere existence plague most people.

In Life Beyond the Scars, Charity shares her faith-filled story of overcoming unthinkable challenges. She equips us all to thrive by revealing the obstacles that attempt to prevent us from living a life of freedom and wholeness.

Charity dives into topics regarding loss, grief, disabilities, and amputation. She transparently shares her teenage and young adult thoughts and emotions as she wrestled with questions regarding trauma; as she learns to truly see beauty come from ashes; and as she connects with God in the midst of trauma.

It is possible to find hope amidst tragedy.

Read Life Beyond the Scars to discover or renew your own desire for a life far beyond survival.
