Life in Spite of Me by Kristen Jane Anderson and Tricia Goyer

This was an AWESOME book. It truly shows how God can turn a catastrophe into a wonderful blessing. Although Kristen's life was "unbearable" and painful to her, God used her life to have a tremendous impact to others.

I found myself on an emotional rollercoaster while reading this book. I felt her pain and ultimately her joy as she related the events that led up to decision to end her life. She might have wanted to end it all but for God her life had just begun.

I read this book in less than 24 hours because I found that I could not put it down one I read the fist few pages. I'm afraid I didn't see much of my kids' ball practices because I could not stop reading this book. I think this book has definitely changed my life and I'm sure it will change your life too. I highly recommend this book to family and friends.

For anyone contemplating suicide you MUST read this book. I dare say this book will be a life saver.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Waterbrook-Multnomah in exchange for an honest review of the book.
