This book is about hope, it is about love and the story of a young woman looking for love in all the wrong places. It tells my personal testimony, but also it intertwines the testimony of others in it too. It is a story of redemption, of learning how to accept yourself and to love yourself for who God created you to be. It is a story of freedom from sin, and from living a life enslaved to sin. It is a story of love, of finding true love in discovering the love of Father God for both me and for others. It is a story of forgiveness and of letting go of those who either intentionally or unintentionally hurt me in the past. It is a story of finding life, and joy and of finding beauty for ashes. It is the story of a girl, who loves Jesus.
