CHURCH IS A PLACE where believers are supposed to assemble to praise and worship our God. From the pressures of life to the disappointments of the week, the church is where we receive our healing, deliverance, direction, and peace. Not only do we worship, but also we fellowship with our brothers and sisters in what should be a loving, nurturing, and caring atmosphere. Sadly, a significant part of my experience has been quite the opposite. The danger of moving prematurely from under our covering made us a target for Satan to do what he does best: steal, kill, and destroy. Journey with me through the valley of the shadow of death, as this book depicts the betrayal, hurt, and humiliation that my family suffered at the hands of God's anointed. This is a story of survival through the trenches of the church world. In spite of everything we have gone through, God is still faithful to His word concerning family and me. He said that He would never leave us nor forsake us, and He has not failed at that yet. The intensity of this story will bring about laughter, tears, frustration, thought provocation, and even repentance. Be blessed, encouraged, and strengthened by my transparency.
