Extraordinary Hope After a Fatal Choice

Life, In Spite of Me

Extraordinary Hope After a Fatal Choice

Author: Kristen Jane Anderson 

    Contributor: Tricia Goye

Publisher: Multnomah Books (May 17, 2011)

Life, In Spite of Me as a very enlighten book. It is not everyday that you can real of someone who has decided that they have gone through enough and don’t want to handle anymore. Kristen decided that was exactly what she wanted to do when she was seventeen years old. She threw herself across a set of railroad tracks and a train ran over her. Both her legs were cut off, but by God’s Grace she survived. 

This is Kristen’s story of what led up to the accident and how her life has changed since then. Everything is not “peaches and cream” for her, either before or after the accident. Kristen shares how she came to accept Christ as her Savior, and His work through her has changed her life so much. She also shares some tidbits of how we can help someone that might be going through some of the things that she was at the time of her suicide attempt. What inspiration comes from this book! 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. I am posting a review on my blog and
