Short Synopsis
Once a suicidal atheist, now a Christ-following rock star, Lacey Sturm tells her story of finding purpose behind the pain and shares the many reasons for her hope.

Full Synopsis
The day Lacey Sturm planned to kill herself was the day her grandmother forced her to go to church, a place Lacey thought was filled with hypocrites, fakers, and simpletons. The screaming match she had with her grandmother was the reason she went to church. What she found there was the reason she is alive today.

With raw vulnerability, this hard-rock princess tells her own story of physical abuse, drug use, suicide attempts, and her ultimate salvation. She asks the hard questions so many young people are asking—Why am I here? Why am I empty? Why should I go on living?—showing us that beyond the temporary highs and the soul-crushing lows, there is a reason they exist and a purpose for their lives. She not only gives listeners a peek down the rocky path that led her to become a vocalist in a popular hardcore band, but she shows them that the same God is guiding their steps today.

"Hers is a story that will encourage and challenge." ---Michael W. Smith

"Fresh. Passionate. Powerful. Just like her voice and presence, Lacey's writing compels and penetrates, and in the end she will change you." ---Chap Clark, PhD, author of Hurt 2.0

"[T]he narrator, Tavia Gilbert, had a perfect voice for the character and story." ---Kindles & Wine Reviews
