Life, In Spite of Me by Kristen Jane Anderson

What an amazing book! This is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. Kristen shares her story of her attempted suicide, how she got to that point, and how God brought her to the point of having hope and then living life for Him.
I got this book today and sat down this evening and devoured the book. I finished it in under three hours. It was a quick read, but not an easy one. Kristen writes in depth about her experiences with depression and suicidal thoughts. Yet she takes the time to offer hope to the readers by writing things that she wished she had been told during her hardest days. She grew up as an all-American girl until some deaths and a rape spiraled her into depression. Read Kristen’s book to find out how God gave her new life, in spite of herself.
"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review"
