Description
Under the Staircase: Hearing God's Voice in the Darkness is a spiritually stirring memoir of one woman's journey to find her self-worth despite the obstacles put in her path by her parents, her abusive husband of 13 years, and herself. Her mother’s depression and her father’s long absences in her childhood left her feeling disconnected and abandoned. In a life-altering moment at age six, Darla found herself in complete despair. In the darkness she heard the voice of her heavenly Father promising He would never leave her—a promise that became the unshakeable cornerstone of her faith when the rest of the world seemed to crumble around her. Holding on to the promise didn’t make her life easy, but it did provide her hope when she needed it most and a determined faith as she grappled with the challenges of adulthood. Darla’s story is an ingenuous and compelling tale of human vulnerability, the power of forgiveness, and the guilt that gnaws at her for not fleeing with her sons sooner. Walk with Darla through her life and discover, or perhaps remember, the light you have been seeking—a light that beams at the edge of all our dark places and gives us reason to keep going, reason to hope. A light that will help you develop a determined faith not just to survive, but to thrive in your life.
About the author
Darla’s ability to connect and meet people where they are can only come from experiencing the same pain and being able to vocalize it. She believes her purpose on this earth is to share the light of truth with others who feel all alone, who have lost their hope, and who feel they don’t matter to anyone. She is currently working on multiple books, speaking, and teaching. You’ll discover, as she has, that God’s not done with any of us yet! You can learn more about her by visiting her website.
