Shellie Jones made many mistakes in her life and because of them, she suffered the consequences. Sometimes her faith was strong and other times, it wavered. Although she has experienced many trials and felt so much pain, her life has entailed positive outcomes as a result of God’s love and His amazing grace. Her positive attitude, faith, gratitude, knowing who she is and who she belongs to as a joint heir of Jesus Christ, and her determination became the essential keys for living. The heavenly Father orchestrated circumstances in her life according to His divine order and her scars became her stars. In the latter part of this book, readers will find how her perspectives changed as she has continued to live her life.
