About the Book

Run. Run from fear. Run to overachievement. Her running began with the loss of her mother in adolescence. Then, if that wasn’t enough, she lost her father to a massive stroke. That pushed her to run further into perfectionism and an advancing career. On the surface, she was a successful professional who lived with a “go big or go home” attitude. But that was the surface. Underneath the bravado, a deep depression led to self-medication and addiction to alcohol. This is a story about overcoming addiction with God’s help. It is a story about addiction and recovery and the faith to overcome. It is a brave story about addiction and recovery told through poetry and raw experiences. Stepping Into Trust guides readers to discover steps to recovery and the hope that leads to healing. Author Brenda Rausch writes from the heart to connect with the emotional pain of dark moments and the joy of walking into deeper trust, belonging, and inner peace. It’s one of those unique books about addiction and recovery that deals with past emotional trauma and the incredible healing process of trusting God. You’re not alone. Brenda Rausch understands. She understands the power of addiction and the challenges of recovery. Through her inspiring journey to recovery, you’ll learn how to overcome addiction with God through art, poetry, and personal stories. Stepping into Trust: A Poetic Journey of Recovery lyrically details a recovering addict’s path to acceptance and healing as she learns to trust in God, herself, and the power of personal transformation.
