Beauty For Ashes: An Exchange for Hope
What drives a woman in the prime of her youth to a mental breakdown? About to enter her final year of university at the age of 19, Ebony Ali suffered a psychotic episode and was sectioned in a mental institute for three months. As she recounts her struggle with low self-esteem stemming from a history of childhood abuse, Ebony is open about the fight to overcome her heartbreaks, conquer her addictions; and how she turned her life around through her rediscovered faith in Jesus Christ. In this book, Ebony identifies with the pains many often endure alone. She demonstrates God's transforming power in her life and shows us her journey through dark despair to a place where she is now enveloped in the love of Christ.
