I Can Still Shine
Battered, Not BrokenBook - 2004
Scorn. Rejection. Abuse. Fear. Brenda knew all these things. Growing up in Alaska and the continental U.S., she faced an enemy--one she couldn't see or understand. Knowledge of the God her missionary parents served didn't keep Brenda out of trouble though. Her heart was stubborn and proud, and she wanted friends at almost any cost. Yet the price of acceptance was dangerously high--and brought her to the brink of death more than once. Repeatedly, she traveled down dark, unknown paths--some filled with enemies who posed as friends, some filled with beasts who posed as gentlemen. Where was God when her world came crashing in on her time and again? Where was He when she struggled for the next breath? Unexpected help from a mysterious source gave Brenda courage to face each day. Yet what she found at the end of her journey out of her dark world was destined to change her life for all eternity...Battered, Not Broken--I Can Still Shine is the powerful and dramatic story of Brenda Jackson, founder and Executive Director of The Battered Women's Foundation (www bwf1.com). Through this non-profit organization, lives are changed daily and hearts are mended.
