God is within her, she will not fail
FINDING PEACE WITHIN
Is a story about a woman who started out as a confident, free spirited, self-assured little girl, who was curious about life, but whose spirit was broken. I will share how I looked to others for love and for my worth. Finally, I will share about the day I found the courage to stand up for myself and take back my life. Leaving a relationship where I was mistreated and devalued.
Finding Peace Within is my story of becoming the strong, fierce, and unapologetic woman whose faith in God is unyielding.
My prayer is that the person reading this book will be inspired and enlightened. I pray that by reading this book, you will be reminded that you are born with everything you need. Your strength and your worth are already inside of you. I hope that this book will help you reconnect with your personal power and love of self, and that you know that you were born perfectly blessed.
Joy and Company Book Review
How often do we stay in relationships that don’t line up with the love we know we deserve? “All too often,” says first time author, advocate and domestic abuse survivor, Stephanie Strickland. But even in the bleakest of situations, Strickland believes there is a way out, a way to get back to ourselves and a way to find the peace we need to, not only survive, but to heal and be made whole.
In her debut release Finding Peace Within, Dallas, Texas native Strickland, shares her gripping journey of love and abuse and her triumph over it all. She relives her struggles as a teenage mother, high school drop-out and survivor of domestic violence while fighting to find a better life for her and her sons. With some serious self-reflection, deep-rooted faith and a little mixed martial arts, Strickland breaks down the strongholds in her life and makes it through to the other side.
Today, Strickland is an advocate for women, and believes in sharing her story to reach others who may be living the life she now has peace from. She wants her readers to remove the masks they wear daily, causing them to hide their truth. In Finding Peace Within, Strickland teaches women how to break the cycle of insecurity and inspires us to fight for the life God has promised us by sharing our stories of overcoming with others.
