Publisher's Summary

The day Lacey Sturm planned to kill herself was the day her grandmother forced her to go to church, a place Lacey thought was filled with hypocrites, fakers, and simpletons. The screaming match she had with her grandmother was the reason she went to church. What she found there was the reason she is alive today.

With raw vulnerability, this hard-rock princess tells her own story of physical abuse, drug use, suicide attempts, and her ultimate salvation. She asks the hard questions so many young people are asking - Why am I here? Why am I empty? Why should I go on living? - showing us that beyond the temporary highs and the soul-crushing lows, there is a reason they exist and a purpose for their lives. She not only gives listeners a peek down the rocky path that led her to become a vocalist in a popular hardcore band, but she shows them that the same God is guiding their steps today.

    "inspirational and not preachy"

    I'd recommend this to anyone who looks up to Lacey or is going through a difficult upbringing to show that you can move past it and find something to be passionate about.

    Story
    "A true and wonderful blessing!"

    I have been praying for a few answers and heard most of them hear. I'm going to listen to it again with a pen and paper so I can write down what God was telling me. I wanted to hear it all the way through first. I probably should have got pen and paper the first time. This book woke up my soul again! Truly gifted woman! I love her music too!
