I am so excited to be a part of this upcoming blog tour that will take place between May 17 – 21st. In the mean time, I have two new copies of this beautiful book to offer to me readers! I will announce to winners using random.org, when I post my review between those dates so enter now 😀
Kristen Anderson thought she had the picture perfect life until strokes of gray dimmed her outlook on life. Once a happy child, Kristen’s world darkened after three friends and her grandmother died within two years. Still reeling from these losses, she was raped by a friend she thought she could trust. She soon spiraled into a depression that didn’t seem to have a bottom.
One January night, the seventeen-year-old made a decision: She no longer wanted to deal with the emotional pain that smothered her. She lay down on a set of cold railroad tracks and waited—for a freight train to send her to heaven…and peace.
Amazingly, Kristen survived her suicide attempt… but the 33 freight cars that ran over her severed her legs. Now she not only had to deal with depression; she also had to face the physical pain and life without legs.
But Kristen’s story didn’t end there. After her darkest days Kristen discovered a real purpose for living. Now, in her compelling book Life, In Spite of Me, Kristen shares her journey from despair to hope.
Includes letters from Kristen that share messages she wishes someone would have told her—when she was depressed and struggling with loss, shame from sexual abuse, and suicidal thoughts.
On May 11, 2010, watch Life, In Spite of Me author, Kristen Jane Anderson, interview on Life Today, hosted by James and Betty Robison. During the interview, Kristen will discuss her failed suicide attempt, the injuries that resulted and the hope she found through faith.
