Book Synopsis

This is a story about a four-year-old little girl whose heart wanted nothing but to love and be loved. Her heart was battered and bruised until it became unresponsive, unyielding and detached from the sources of pain and the authentic comfort of a loving God. By the age of nine, she learned how to find her own way of coping with pain through the process of detachment and attachment. She created a self she wanted to be so that she didn’t have to identify with the pain associated with her life. What she didn’t know was her response, reaction and trained way of handling pain would lead her into a desert for forty years. Forty years later, at the age of forty-nine, she would come full circle to the place within where it all began!


“I read this at the perfect time in my life. You have given me an extra push, a little more motivation and a lot of insight to what I feel like is a never ending storm I’m trying to get through.”

SHOR Guarantee

What makes our program unique is the fact that we will require all participants to complete high school or a GED program and further their education. Each participant accepted into our program will have a peace of mind knowing that they are able to live in our residential home community for the duration of their time in high school and that we will work along with them as they pursue college or trade school and transition to independent living. Our aim is to help young people set goals for their future and achieve them. Each young person who comes through our program will have a family of support to help them accomplish their goals; we will work as one team, learning and growing together. We take pride in knowing that our future participants will grow into fine adults who become productive members of society.
