In life, the moment you start feeling comfortable and confident in your shell, there will be something waiting for you in the corner to test all your virtues at once and persuade you into believing that this is the worst that can happen to anyone! Well, some of us have lived or are still attempting to trail a path through the worst nightmares to reach to the other end where the reality is not as cold and cruel as the present.
This book will teach you about organized temporary shelters, safe places, and homeless situations that were God contrived and how they aided Audrey to come out stronger through her battles and, most importantly, evolve as a person. Mustering enough courage to stand up for the self requires immense faith in the one who made us; the moment you shield yourself with a spiritual wall, that’s when things will start falling into their places, and experience liberation in the most real sense of the word. Much like us, Audrey hurled in the face of a challenge that almost seemed unfeasible, but she dared to endure something entirely foreign. She obeyed the directions of God and became someone capable of inspiring the mass of people struggling to make peace with uncontrollable circumstances.
If you care about the homeless or if you are in fear of becoming homeless, find solutions in this book. If you are against human-trafficking and have a passion for those caught in a system of control, you will find resources in this book. If you have lost your job and are struggling without a definite direction amid a national pandemic, this book is for you. If you are scared to death about what lies in the future, experiencing abuse, and need a safe place to hide, this book will be your ultimate refuge.
Audrey will help you navigate through a host of circumstances; happy, sad, repetitive, or singular. The question, “Why me,” will be replaced by a more constructive one that asks, “How can I do this?” Home is not a physical space circumscribed by four walls and a roof; it is your mind and its freedom, the one that is an untarnished assurance of the Almighty. Through the book, seek solace in God, the one true Comforter. You are an intentional creation of God for His purpose, and therefore, you must be formidable, yet gentle in your position with Him. As Audrey rightly says, everything happening with us is a part of His plan that He made in His image. Lean on the Lord, and you will witness your tribulations, leaving you and escaping into thin air!
In reading this book, “SAFE,” many thoughts crossed my mind of the struggles I never found depth in until my eyes opened upon these pages. Truth leaks out amid caring and serving others, bringing awareness to what’s REAL when pain tries to stay, and when it is time to deal with it. I can see how this book can help many people on a similar path. For those that never experienced being homeless, abused, or traumatized, you can find this book to be resourceful, as I have today. I know several people that I have personally ministered to will find as I have now, more awareness in-depth coming from “Pain to Purpose.” Because of outcome experiences Audrey, carefully walks you through this book, with transparency and vulnerability. She helps you to become more sensitive to those around you who are hurting. This book will help you do something about it the next time you see a person hurting and in need. You will quickly examine your heart and love for God and His people.
I salute Audrey, with hats off as a powerful woman of God, who has stood and is still standing through an unbelievable life journey into a sure SAFE place in Christ! In this book, I admire how Audrey acknowledges God and how He has brought her through every obstacle of trauma, misunderstandings, judgment, pain, and shame. I admire how God uses her NOW for His GLORY, especially during the COVID-19 Pandemic. God’s got you if you commit your ways unto Him. He will keep you. He is faithful to the end. What the enemy meant for harm, God will use it for His Glory.
Help someone else know that He is the saving Lord of all. Much love to you my friend and to your many other books to come. My prayer is your heart’s desires are answered “SUDDENLY” and your “DAY DROP-IN CENTER FOUNDATION” will come to pass and is funded in Jesus’ name!
