by Dr. Bridgette Y. Williams Ph.D

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
The book describes a period in the author's life in which she gave herself up, trustingly, to two Christian pastors, who proceeded to control her life for their selfish motives and to inflict the wrath of their congregations on her in insidious ways. The book then proceeds to describe how she found her way out of this morass and went on to become a successful counselor and minister.
The book begins with the author contemplating suicide via handgun and then proceeds to describe her journey through depression and seeming madness at a mental health and recovery facility in South Carolina. Along the way, she describes many characters who were influential in her life--both positively and negatively. The book concludes with a description of her life and practice as it now is, and with a discussion of how negative events can shape a person positively if these events are looked at with an eye toward self growth.
