About the Book
The untold story of how Lecrae's past nearly ruined his life--until he learned that the wounds we carry point to the healing and freedom we all desperately need.
When all you've suffered threatens to destroy your life, how do you get back to the truth you thought you believed?
I Am Restored is the shattering yet hope-filled story of how Lecrae faced the buried wounds 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 how 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 incapable of meeting the challenge.
In this powerful, deeply personal account, Lecrae provides an unflinching look at the personal and public spaces that are too often places of pain and heartache--culture, politics, family, church--and reminds us that letting go and forgiving is the birthplace for the life of creativity and freedom God has for us. In addition, he shares the transformational yet simple practices he uses daily for mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
I Am Restored is a hopeful, inspiring charge to embrace the lasting healing and restoration available now, because no matter what you've experienced, God is near, he hears, and he's not done with you yet.
'This personal story of faith lost and found is especially recommended to Christians who are struggling to comprehend God's complex ways.'
