Life, In Spite of Me
She began drinking alcohol, smoking, and partying. At one of the parties, a young man she cared for raped her. She hid it from everyone and took the shame on herself. She blamed herself. Her parents finally resorted to grounding her for an indefinite period of time. That same night, she went for a walk and found herself at the park where the train tracks traveled. Before she knew it, she was laying on the track and the train ran over her. The next thing she recalls was laying on the tracks and seeing her legs laying far off in the grass.
A long recovery followed and she does not remember how she ended up on the train tracks. Did she try to commit suicide as the doctors believe? She was placed in a psychiatric ward several times, and finally finds a therapist who is a Christian. Ruth Ann offers hope. She finds a church and friends who introduce her to Christ in a new way. Read her fascinating and touching story to see how she turns a fatal choice into extraordinary hope.
Kristen's story can offer hope to many who feel they have no purpose. She overcame great obstacles and others can do the same!
