Surviving Childhood Pain is the inspiring story of a spunky child of God who navigated a difficult childhood through her abiding faith in the Lord. The young girl saw her single mother struggling to provide for three children and prayed to find a way to help her hard working mother ease her struggle. This young girl was convinced that if she could live with her father, then her mother's life would be easier. But she knew it would take an act of God for her mother to let her go live with her father. God grants her prayer, and she goes to live with her father; however, she is unaware of the hardships she would have to endure while living with him in a crowded two bedroom home where there was no love for her, except from her father and my cousin Derrick. The difficulties she encounters while living with him cause her to lean heavily on God and His promises. Her faith is challenged as she endures hardships and losses, but she hangs on to the everlasting love of God. She holds steadfast to her decision to make her mother's life easier regardless of the sacrifices she has to make. These experiences tested her faith in God, but she came to terms with the hand she was dealt with remarkable courage and strength. Despite the hardships and tragic losses, God provided support from unexpected sources that allowed her to transform her life and achieve amazing accomplishments. The book is reminiscent of Gordon Park's "Flavio's Home" and Langston Hughes' "Salvation," which you will not want to put down till the story ends.
