Do you have a face you show the world?
One that's happy, confident, friendly, and calm...but if someone looked inside you would they see a face completely different?
Misti Stevenson was living that kind of life, and she hated it. Her desperation and intense desire to change led her on a long and challenging journey filled with jagged peaks and valleys, but one in which she truly walked with Christ.
Her story touched my heart, and her faith inspired me.
From the back cover:
Growing up, Misti thought she had a pretty normal childhood. Right up until sixth grade. That's when she began to notice things. Like how she was constantly aware of every blink of her eyes. How any normal physical thing could become an enemy that her brain replay over and over again. She tried talking to her parents about it, but family dysfunction and parental control issues wouldn't let them see the problem for what it was. So she did everything she could to hide it. It would take her many more years to attach a name to her tortuous condition--Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
But after many more years of struggling, praying, and counseling, Misti experienced the miracle she had been seeking--she was healed.
So she's done hiding. This is her story of suffering through and eventually being healed of`OCD, anxiety, and depression through the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. This is the story of how the Lord turned her deepest struggles into her greatest blessings.
