ENMESHED IN CIRCUMSTANCES far beyond my capacity to handle and acutely aware that life as I had always known it was spiraling out of control, I found myself in the middle of the fiercest battle I would ever face. It was then, many years ago, on a bitter-cold February night, I made a decision that would forever alter my life's trajectory. A Gradual Redemption is my story--a true story comprised of deep sorrow and loss, yet overwhelming redemption and victory. It's a story that explores the impact a father can have on his daughter, the void he leaves behind, and her quest to fill it. It's a story of choices that lead a desperate young woman to a life-altering encounter, and how--through painstaking effort--faith has the ability to redeem and restore all that is lost and broken.
