To Be Known: When Hurt Finds Healing and Identity is Rewritten
Once upon a time there was a happy, young girl. It would be nice if this story could begin with those enchanted words. But some stories have a much different beginning, and are anything but fairytales.
Join author, Michelle Raby, as she shares her story of crippling insignificance and the struggle for emotional and spiritual survival. Raised in the dysfunction of a drug-infested home, she watched her family stream in and out of prison, while being carelessly bounced from the homes of friends to those of cruel, uncaring strangers. Robbed of innocence, and with self-worth erased, her strategies for survival became desperate, yet skillfully hidden behind a well-managed façade.
Though the mask allowed her to maneuver through life without raising too many questions, the charade finally betrayed her, revealing her true identity and leaving her broken, exposed, and alone. Then in a life-changing moment of decision, she embarked on the process of healing, stripping away layers of her past and discovering hope from a God who determined her value and significance to be unerasable.
To Be Known is a beautiful story of how broken beginnings can be ransomed and redefined into breathtaking purpose and promise. It is not a fairytale, but rather a tale of the restorative power of God; the King of the universe reaching down to rescue His beloved. A tale that is available to anyone who is willing to reach up for His hand.
“To Be Known is a book that beautifully reveals two hearts – that of the wounded in search of rest and renewal, and of the Healer who faithfully desires to mend and restore. Through the author’s transparency and vulnerability the story declares that when brokenness intersects with forgiveness and God’s healing power, the weight of the past can be lifted and the future can be rewritten for unimagined liberty of heart and spirit.” ~ Lisa Osteen Comes, author of You Are Made for More!
