Author and reverend Dr. Kavara Gee recalls several times that people asked how he was able to continue living after countlessly surviving life's storms. He wondered himself several times, as he recalls his life story in his published pastor testimony, Alone Have Escaped to Tell Thee... Life began on a difficult note for Dr. Kavara Gee while growing up in South Carolina, as he witnessed verbal abuse between his parents that escalated to physical abuse from his reverend father. He wasn't immune from the abuse either, as his mother verbally abused him and he was molested as a child. Once he felt called to preach at thirteen, the struggles continued as he questioned his identity as a man, endured rejection from the church and became a teenage father. However, Dr. Gee depended on God to get through and remain in his calling to preach Jesus' love and redemption to others.
