God still has a plan for you--not in spite of your past, but because of it
Do regret and shame over your failures, sins, and shortcomings make you wonder how you could ever be loved, much less used, by a holy God? Tracie Miles felt the same way until she discovered the path to healing, peace, and significance.
She helps you recognize that God not only has a purpose for you, but He has prepared you for your divine purpose based specifically on the experiences of your past.
Through her own story and stories from other women who have discovered God's purpose for their lives because of adverse experiences, Tracie helps you see how God can turn pain into purpose. You will find forgiveness and healing from the troubles of your past, discover the courage to step out of your comfort zone to help others find hope and strength, and be inspired to step into the beautiful future God divinely designed for you.
"No matter what you've been through or what's been done to you, if you're still breathing, God isn't finished with you yet Let Tracie Miles help you discover your calling and the way you are uniquely equipped to make your life count "
--Renee Swope, bestselling author of "A Confident Heart" and Proverbs 31 Ministries' radio cohost, "Everyday Life with Lysa & Renee.
