Your walk with God:
A daily testimony of faith, trust, and belief?
A weekly routine of doctrine, tradition, and customs?
Every person’s story is a microcosmic enactment of God’s eternal story, a portrayal of His relationship with humanity.
Written with a cathartic tone, this sibling story reveals an adventurous testimony to the presence of God over the entire course of a lifetime. It is a testimony of developing faith and struggle for identity, personal acceptance, and self-liberation.
With liberation comes freedom, and Anita believes freedom is the absence of fear. The absence of fear in Anita’s life has been a long time coming—taking nearly six decades to abolish the fear that began with childhood trauma and grief; the fear manifested as guilt and inadequacy; the fear of greatness that had her playing small; the fear that her father would always be an unknown factor in her life, and, most decidedly, the fear of giving God complete control over her life. God is now the boss of Anita’s life, and this book chronicles her journey toward giving Him control.
