Thank God I Failed by DES

A Collection of True-Life Stories That Will Change Your life

Thank God

Thank God I Failed by Des is a moving, often poignant collection of stories about actual events in her life; events that many of us would not have the courage to share.

From the sometimes painful memories of early childhood through bad relationships, depression, and addiction to forgiveness, acceptance, and peace, this is a story of real Faith. The kind of Faith that can move mountains or simply change one life for the better.

This author courageously shares with her readers her stories of pain, depression, drugs, alcohol, and toxic relationships. She also shares stories about mental illness and even attempted suicide. Her story is one of sinking to the bottom and then, somehow finding the strength to climb up out of the abyss.

Today, Des lives as a happier, healthier, fulfilled woman, living a life about which she previously could only dream. While life may never be perfect, she now lives a life that is truly at peace with who she is and her place in this world.

It was her constantly growing Faith that gave Des the strength to change the course of her life. That same belief provides her with the courage to share her story with her readers in the hope that they too, can transform their lives. The stories contained in this book will touch readers, heart and soul, and they are a real example of the wondrous change true Faith can achieve.

When I read this author’s compelling book, I was struck by the brutal honesty and sincere feelings of pain, despair, hope and compassion in her stories … as well as the valuable life-lessons to be found within them. Des’ story is an amazing tale of redemption, forgiveness, and change driven by a deep belief in a loving God.

I believe this is this author’s first book and therefore it may not be as polished or smooth as something written by a more experienced or professional author. But it is that fact, that allows the author’s honesty and courage to shine through. Her voice has not been edited out of the narrative and because of that, this is not just another dry self-help book. This is her story as told by her. It is that raw, unfiltered honesty that makes this book unique and special, and therefore, very powerful.

Yes! Faith can indeed move mountains. And therefore, it can also transform a life for the better.

Walk a mile or so in Des’ shoes. Take a look into her life and perhaps you will find the hope within yours. You can check out Des’ moving and inspirational story on Amazon!
