Life, In Spite of Me

Life, In Spite of Me: Extraordinary Hope After a Fatal ChoiceIn Life, In Spite of Me this remarkably joyful young woman shares the miracle of her survival, the agonizing aftermath of her failed suicide attempt, and the hope that has completely transformed her life, giving her a powerful purpose for living.

Her gripping story of finding joy against all odds provides a vivid and unforgettable reminder that life is a gift to be treasured. 

Kristen's true story is one that has stuck with me long after I finished reading her book.  This young woman seemed to have a perfect life, but by 17, she was so depressed that she tried to kill herself by laying down on railroad tracks.  The fact that she survived is a miracle, but the way she has touched people and the inspiring faith that she shares are yet another miracle.

  1. did you know you can do comment moderation just for older posts? i seldom get spammed on week old or younger posts. it's always old ones...and you can turn it on just for them. for me, that catches about 99%.

    repaying the visit from UBP. sorry it's taken so long.

    This looks like an interesting book. I love to read about people's lives and here their testimonies.
