Childrey beat all the odds to become an award-winning and respected news journalist, a dream he has had since childhood. In his autobiography, Peeling Back the Layers, Childrey demonstrates his ability to persevere during times of immense struggle by relying on the faith that was instilled in him as a child.

This book means a lot to me not only because I have known the author for more that twenty years, but; because he has shown his intent to help others by writing his story. It reads well in that it reads as though Lawayne himself is taking to you, the reader. He opens his soul up allowing healing for not only himself, but; others as well. After reading "Pealing Back the Layers- A Story of Trama, Grace and Triumph, you will know that there is hope.
