Author Crystal McDaniel was born into a troubled home. Growing up in a family that struggled with alcoholism, joblessness, homelessness, and abuse, she was set up for disaster. But as he always does, God had something else in mind.
Follow Crystal McDaniel's vividly retold story as she candidly relates both the good and the bad experiences of her life. She is more than willing to tell listeners of her poor choices, hoping to inspire others to avoid falls, break their addictions, and leave their destructive cycles behind.
She focuses on the narrative of Esther, the everyday girl whom God destined for greatness, to elaborate on how God used similar miracles to show her the true way.
With no holds barred, Crystal displays her weaknesses and triumphs in a down-to-earth style that is as enticing as it is uncommon. Follow her as she openly discusses her entanglement with marijuana, entrenchment in club life, and how she broke free from abusive relationship cycles—all through the grace of God. With a strong desire to display God as the breaker of vicious cycles, she adamantly and unapologetically examines every aspect of his grace and power in her life. With his divine leading, she received a full scholarship through college, an eye-opening chance to study abroad, and many miraculous relationships.
Although God's hand allowed her to become entangled in the devices of Satan, he never allowed her to be wholly taken and destroyed. She, like you, has been Predestined to Reign.
How this book made it to publishing is beyond me. Poor writing, editing, and use of diction. The reader was horrible too. Every swallow was heard and not edited out. Words were mispronounced.
Thankfully the author was saved, but not after an astonishing number of trips and falls. Incredibly poor decision making and life choices. Overall a painful listen on many levels.
