Inspiration for anyone who has suffered loss.
Unlike most personal stories, author Victoria Joyce's unique style of writing, has you feeling as though she is right there with you, having an intimate one-on-one conversation. She so eloquently and candidly shares her battle with alcoholism, going through numerous back to back loses, insurmountable financial struggles, betrayals, homelessness, a bi-polar diagnoses and much more.
When Victoria Joyce suddenly becomes ill and finds that she is suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, she endures an almost three-year battle obtaining disability benefits, as she called home wherever someone would take her in. In her second book Heart Tugs, Hugs & A Few Tug of Wars, Victoria Joyce recounts her struggles after being diagnosed with Lyme disease and Multiple Sclerosis. She also openly shares how she had to come to grips with her new limitations and the need to define a "new normal," to regain inner peace and contentment.
Joyce's story is inspirational. The main purpose for sharing her story, is to help others better overcome their own emotional, mental and spiritual obstacles while on their own journey. Warning! Unlike most Christian authors, Victoria Joyce does not shy away from tough issues that Christians face. She touches on premarital sex, feeling inferior and unloved, not fitting in, fears, pain, frustrations, gripping depression, a planned suicide, and anger - even at God.
There is victory, as God reveals to Victoria Joyce, in unique and personal ways, only she could understand, that not only is His love unconditional, but His love is greater than she could ever imagine or experience from earthly "things" or people, and that He will never leave her or forsake her and that she will always be provided for.
