About the Book

It can happen in an instant. Betrayal. Abuse. Grief. Trauma. The very thing you just know will kill you happens and you find yourself asking, “Am I going to make it?”
Erica Harms remembers the day she asked that same question with tears rolling down her cheeks. Sometimes the walk of faith is more of a limp. Or even a crawl. And when trauma strikes, forget even crawling. Just sitting still and trying to inhale and exhale is a victory.
The only hope we have is the proof that others have crossed out of the shadows, out of the darkness, safely to the other side. As someone who has stood on the shore of despair and been set free, Erica knows that even the darkest and most repulsive parts of our story can be redeemed into something beautiful.
Her honest and raw story declares that it is possible to be scared and brave and broken and whole and weak and strong at the same time. It is possible to find hope after disappointment, healing after abuse, and joy after despair. May the testimony of one who has been made whole but still remembers well what it was like to be broken be a lifeline of hope to those of you who today are asking, “Am I really going to survive this?”
