The day Lacey Sturm planned to kill herself was the day her grandmother forced her to go to church, a place Lacey thought was filled with hypocrites, fakers, and simpletons. The screaming match she had with her grandmother was the reason she went to church. What she found there was the reason she is alive today.
With raw vulnerability, this hard-rock princess tells her own story of physical abuse, drug use, suicide attempts, and her ultimate salvation. She asks the hard questions so many young people are asking - Why am I here? Why am I empty? Why should I go on living? - showing us that beyond the temporary highs and the soul-crushing lows, there is a reason they exist and a purpose for their lives. She not only gives listeners a peek down the rocky path that led her to become a vocalist in a popular hardcore band, but she shows them that the same God is guiding their steps today.

first audiobook I have tried and have wanted to hear this one fir a while, lacey has such a powerful testimony and is well shared and thought out. its a motivation and great influence by an extraordinary person to bring faith to others in such a passionate way. God bless you lacey.
I highly recommend this book to any fan of Lacey, Flyleaf or Christian. Lacey's story is not only inspiring but is one so many of us can relate to. Filled with doubt, pain, loss as well as inspiration. After listening to this book, Flyleaf's music has new meaning to me. Check it out!
Lacey's story is beautiful and encouraging. I thought it was well narrated as well.
"a good and simple biography"
I enjoyed this book being a long-time fan of Lacey Strum and Flyleaf. This book is very intimate into the thoughts feelings and motivations behind the creation of Lacey's beloved work and for that expose I am grateful to have the chance to read.
"Powerful and moving"
This audiobook is moving and with the powerful message of the unfailing love of the Lord! Lacey's story is moving beyond belief and the listener can see themselves in her shoes. This book has moved me to tears and has a renewed a love for the Lord!
"a true favourite"
Loved it. truly inspiring. would love to hear more. a life lesson that can be related to
"inspirational and not preachy"
I'd recommend this to anyone who looks up to Lacey or is going through a difficult upbringing to show that you can move past it and find something to be passionate about.
Could not put it down. Finished the same day I started it. This moved me.
"A true and wonderful blessing!"
I have been praying for a few answers and heard most of them hear. I'm going to listen to it again with a pen and paper so I can write down what God was telling me. I wanted to hear it all the way through first. I probably should have got pen and paper the first time. This book woke up my soul again! Truly gifted woman! I love her music too!
You can truly feel the passion Lacey has for God and his children! Incredible! I loved it! Thank you Lacey for sharing your story!
