Whether restricted by prison walls, the influence of others or held hostage by self-inflicted limitations, captivity starts in the mind. We allow our thoughts to create virtual restrainers that stifle our dreams and hinder our purpose.

Based on I Corinthians 13:12, Tainted Mirror An
Anthology will offer stories of hope and healing to
overcome the mental, physical and emotional
strongholds that keep us from fulfilling our destiny.

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
~ I Corinthians 13:12
