About the Book

Broken Rungs Yet I Climbed is a riveting narrative of the author’s struggle to make sense of, survive, and thrive the harsh realities of a life that appeared doomed from inception. A life overshadowed by abuse, poverty, and grief. Dr. Patton takes her readers on an adventurous journey through several emotionally traumatizing episodes before finally arriving at her divinely appointed destination. She illustrates the power of adversities to propel one into their destiny; and reveals how a life of faith in God guided her to a place of peace, hope, and healing.
