MEANT TO BE
My life has been one big adventure. I didn’t realize how much I had seen and how many things I had done until I wrote this book. Right after high school, I moved from cold Minnesota to sunny, warm Oahu, Hawaii and fell in love with paradise. I had many adventures, whether I was on an active volcano watching the lava flow just below my feet, swimming with the dolphins in the ocean, going on solo trips, hiking up gigantic mountains and waterfalls, or swimming at my favorite beaches. I enjoyed Hawaii and all it had to offer. It truly was paradise.
It may sound like a dream come true, but it wasn’t always easy. I grew up in a single-parent home. During my childhood, my mom and I didn’t seem to get along. My dad was not in my life, so I struggled with pain, insecurity, and feelings of rejection and abandonment. I had been sexually abused which messed me up, and then I met Jesus! I wouldn’t say it was all happy times after I met Him, but Jesus saved me in so many ways!
I moved to Hawaii to run from my past, thinking that my future on an island in the south pacific would be perfect. I drifted from God and fell into a life of partying, depression, and self-pity. In this place, I met many people that tore me down in abusive ways, and eventually when I felt I was in a deep well of sorrow from pain and agony, I cried out to God who saved me! When God saved me, He brought loving and encouraging people into my life to help me along the way. By the grace of God, I was saved and even though everything wasn’t perfect in my life, I had this intimate relationship with my Father God. I was on an amazing journey with Him, and He mattered the most in my life! God used me to touch many people’s lives, and it blessed me much more than it blessed the people I met on this journey called life.
God called me to write my story which was a hard one to write, but I felt it needed to be told. I have gone through a great deal of healing by writing about what happened to me. God protected me throughout so many incidents that could have gone terribly wrong, but He saved me so that I would tell my story. I praise God I am still alive! I have a testimony to share, and I know some of you can relate to what I have gone through in life. If you are in that place where you see no way out, hang in there and call out to God. He can save you!
I wouldn’t change my past for anything because I wouldn’t be the woman I am today if I hadn’t gone through the trials with pain and suffering. God has brought me to a better place, and it is in Him that I lean on now! I love the woman God has molded me to be, and I wouldn’t be who I am today if it weren’t for what I went through in my life!
Thank you for picking up my book. I hope it encourages and blesses you. This is my first book publication, and I plan on writing more books. Please watch for more to come. The names of people and pets have been changed in this book to protect their identity. I thank God for the people who have impacted my life in a positive way, because I would not be where I am today without them!
I also want to add that my story is not written in chronological order. When I was putting my book together, it just fit perfectly because God was in the middle of it all. Praising God for all He has done and all He is doing for me.
