Stacey Paden was addicted to alcohol, she was self medicating from childhood abuse, trauma and making poor decisions starting at the age of 10, she was raped at 11. Her mother sent her to live with her Father & Stepmother and that’s when the abuse began, her stepmother withheld food from her and her father beat her for stealing food. But God did not leave her and gave Stacey a way of knowing who Jesus was and saving her. Beautiful story of resistance and redemption.
Armando Palazzo’s story began when he and his wife were concerned and didn’t know why his young daughter was growing into a deep – dark place. They tried to talk to her but it wasn’t until she turned 15 that they discovered there was a traumatic secret that was withheld from them. This is a story of a Pastor and his family that had to overcome guilt, shame and feel whole again through Christ. Armando wrote the book “Battle to Win” journaling his thoughts and and creating a devotional out of a time of walking through a dark journey that was overcome by Jesus.
