Tracie Miles begins with her own story of a teenage abortion
and the years of guilt and shame she experienced to show that God can bring
good out of our past and that no matter what that past is, God can use it to
give us a divine purpose for our life.
The author uses other women’s stories along with what
ministries they have started or are participating in now, along with Bible
stories to show the same thing.
At the end of each chapter she has homework for the reader
meant to help her forgive herself, learn more about God’s grace and how He
works, and what she can learn from the trial.
One of Tracie’s most helpful sections walks the reader
through creating a timeline of her life so she can begin to see how God has
been working all along.
As Tracie states in her introduction, “The past is not meant
just to be survived and forgotten, but to help us become overcomers who can use
our experiences to glorify God.”
