Alice Faye Polk grew up witnessing violence, poverty and abuse in Mississippi, and she was determined not to repeat that cycle in her adult life. As an adolescent, she moved to Pennsylvania with great hopes of living a better life. But soon, she found herself reliving generational patterns.

She did not give up. With faith in God, she made great strides in breaking the chains of abusive relationships and raising several of her children to attend college. Now at a family reunion back in Mississippi, Alice narrates a letter in hopes of uplifting the next generation. The inspiration includes healing prayers to help others in dire circumstances.

“I, like Alice Faye Polk, had to make up my mind that enough was enough! It’s a good feeling and it sets you free ... and as time goes on ... you are totally free. This book will inspire you to do the right thing. No one can do it for you.” -Minister Carol Owens Ford, Greater Mt. Calvary Holy Church Washington, DC.

I highly recommend this book to young and old women alike. This book will help you realize that whatever you are going through, there is always a way out and that way is to let go and let God work in your life. You need to learn how to break those chains and the only way is to totally depend on God. I could not stop reading until I finished the whole book.” - Jettie Pou, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Sunday School Superintendent.

This is a must read! The pages share a testimony of how a person can endure through generational curses and abuse but still see the resurrection power of JESUS CHRIST.” - Pastor Curtis Henderson.

When reading this book, I found myself comforted and inspired for different situations in my life. The prayers are a great resource to seek God for your daily needs. Though I wasn’t a victim of abuse, I still found this book very helpful and relevant. I encourage everyone to read this book, no matter what your situation may be. I'm impatiently waiting for the next volume.” - Claudette Bailey, Mother and Grandmother, President of Deaconness

Alice ‘keeps it real’ in this edge-of-your-seat page-turner that sounds more like a novel than a narrative of domestic abuse. Her colorful, transparent, tearful and yet joyful testimony brings hope to women who feel they are living in a house of abuse without exits. Through the lens of her painful story, Alice reveals the Lord’s promised presence even when we make our bed in hell. Keeping hope alive even in the midst of the most discouraging moments, Alice encourages the abused how ‘all things’ can be overcome through Christian faith. Her overcoming faith brings to life the Apostle Paul’s words, ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ I highly recommend this book as a guiding light for all who are at their wit’s end and just don’t know what to do next.”  - PASTOR CHARLES MOCK, Community Baptist Church (Erie, PA)
