About the Book
When the challenges you've faced threaten to destroy your life, how do you find your way back to the truths you thought you believed?
I Am Restored tells the untold story of how Lecrae's past nearly ruined his future--until he learned that the wounds we carry can have the potential to be unlikely guides to healing and freedom for ourselves and others.
Throughout I Am Restored, Lecrae documents the shattering yet hopeful story of how he faced the scars of his past--sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression--and emerged more fully human than ever before. With remarkable transparency and vulnerability, Lecrae reveals that at the height of his professional success, his life was spinning out of control, driven by a past that he had never confronted and a religious perspective that was incapable of meeting the challenge.
I Am Restored takes an unflinching look at the personal and public spaces that are too often at the societal core of our pain and heartache--culture, politics, family, church, and more--and teaches us that forgiveness can be the birthplace of the life that God has created for us.
Throughout this powerful, deeply personal account, Lecrae shares the life lessons he's learned about:
- Confronting the pain and trauma that has shaped your story
- Breaking the cycle of sin and shame and embracing joy and authenticity
- Finding hope and healing in the midst of chaos
- The simple practices that can change your mental, emotional, and spiritual health
- Leading a life that's bursting with creativity and true freedom
I Am Restored is a hopeful, inspiring charge to start your journey to lasting healing today. No matter what your past has held, God is near you, he hears you, and he's not done writing your story.
