The Image in the Mirror II is a moving and powerful book presented in four sections: Fractured Foundation, Relentless Resilience, Deliberate Damage, and Blossoming Bravery.
FRACTURED FOUNDATION-We are reminded that children are dependent on a strong foundation upon which their families are built. Within the foundation, families should provide a nurturing, loving, caring environment, and the framework for positive societal values. When the family foundation is rocky and unstable, you can well imagine what will happen to these children and what they must endure in order to survive.
RELENTLESS RESILIENCE-Sometimes we are faced with some of the most horrific and challenging situations that require us to use everything at our disposal to help us to survive. The authors in this section were faced with devastating challenges, which at times, made them feel as if the weight of the world was on top of them. They were like seeds planted in fertile soil that had to crack in order to absorb water and nutrients from the soil in order to grow and thrive. It is not the end of the plant. It is the beginning of its life.
DELIBERATE DAMAGE-Emotional and physical traumais often caused by the people we love and trust the most. The authors in this section were severely impacted, experiencing some of the most atrocious events of their lives during a time when they should have been protected and loved. These events left the authors broken spiritually, hurt, confused, abused, and emotionally scarred. The readers will learn about the deep, dark secrets behind the four walls of the homes these authors grew up in and their resolve to make life better for themselves and their children.
BLOSSOMING BRAVERY-There are times in your life when you feel like you’re on top of the world, but then your world as you knew it is ripped apart, and everything around you comes crumbling down. Then, you find yourself struggling to put your life back together. These authors faced some of the most unimaginable adversities of tragedy, hardships, and heartbreak in their lives. However, by the grace of God, they were able to fight back to reclaim their faith, hope, and love.
