Allow me to introduce myself. I am that family member, co-worker, or friend
who slowly, over time, began to get lost in a degrading, moral-less world. The
person whose family, friends, and employers cried for the person I had been and
the unrecognizable person I was becoming -- a lonely and desperate woman
hell-bent on self-destruction. And I am the family member, co-worker, or friend
who at last discovered God's plan for her life and, finally, came home ...
�from I Say a Prayer for Me.
Stanice Anderson shares her inspiring story to show others they too can overcome
even the most soul-destroying mistakes � and discover the lifelong assurance of
peace and joy through a personal relationship with God. S
tanice has lived through it all. From a seemingly perfect upper-class home, she
fell into a nightmare of endless partying, self-destructive behavior, and
abusive relationships. Unresolved pain and guilt drove her to the bottom on a
death-spiral nothing seemed able to stop � until the night, while shooting
drugs, she heard of God's infinite forgiveness and began turning her life
around. She tells how: Walking by faith and taking action rescued her when she
was fresh out of rehabilitation � and out of money, references, or credit.
Learning that God loved her despite her darkest secrets freed her from her
painful past � and helped her forgive as well as find forgiveness. Putting
herself in another person's shoes taught her how to cope with "difficult" people
� and discover truths about herself.
Surrendering unresolved guilt and pain to God gave her the strength to lay
down a burden that nearly destroyed her life. Accepting God's gift of an unusual
friend helped her make her most cherished dreams come true. Honest, caring, and
inspiring, I Say a Prayer for Me also features special devotions to help you
find your path and grow in God's love throughout your life.
