  2. 2018 was one of the hardest years of my life, but it was also one of the most amazing years of my life. I struggled through getting sober, getting my child back, and many other difficulties. But the best thing that happened was reclaiming my faith with the lord. And Layla’s book has helped keep me strong through my struggles. And kept me seeing hope in situations where I had lost it all. I don’t know where I would be without this book in my life it really helped me through this year.
