This is my Mom's journal, the daily life of a single teenage mother. Her experience with me as an infant was so much fun. My Mom soon learned that it wouldn't be easy caring for a baby all day, every day. Day one began the journey when she introduced me to her friends and family. She fixed my curly brown hair up in a bow, and put a newborn diaper on me. Mom didn't know there were so many styles of diapers to choose from in the store. It was mind-boggling. My mom said I had the cutest little ears she had ever seen. I was very heavy for mom to carry me everywhere all over school, including her books! The only time when she needed a babysitter was when she had football games and class, so basically I was with the babysitter all day. I saw right then that day care would be a necessity. I hired my parents, my granddad, and my friends to baby sit. Whenever I and the other went to practice, we created a meeting place in the classroom. If Abigail were in need care services, I would pay around $90 a week just for her to go to day care, and that doesn't include any extra food or diapers I would need to send. I also couldn't imagine having to wake up every two hours all night long to feed, change diapers, and rock Abigail back to sleep. Then again, I know I would really love my baby, so I would take care of her the proper way. Before Abigail was born, I know I was going to name her Abigail. If one day I have a boy, I am going to name him Colton. Hopefully, whomever I marry will think the same. I have decided I only want a few children, about three, but I definitely do not want to be a pregnant mom in college, taking care of more children when I am only a kid myself. I know I would have to focus on my schoolwork instead of taking care of a baby. I gave Abigail a certain time to play and then it was nap time for my little baby. She needed her rest for the next day because we would have to go to school then day care all over again.

There are countless people in the world who have been faced with being bullied and who developed a mind of low self-worth because of the use and effects of powerful, life-changing words that they dealt with throughout their life span, and it caused severe separation anxiety.Many people may seem to have it together on the outside; they are smiling and laughing with what seems like no worries at all, but on the inside, there is a raging storm of life. The thoughts of suicide are so overwhelming, and the thought of just being in the world brings on sadness. God Had to Break Me to Fix Me is a book for encouragement and strength during difficult times that you may be faced with in your life. When and if you feel that you're at a breaking point, and you feel like you're going down for the last time, you feel like all hope is gone; but there is hope because you never go too far or too low that God can't pick you up and give you strength and give you joy when there is sadness.I shared my personal experience of me being bullied, rejected, being suicidal, insecurities, lack of self-love, and the loss of my baby girl. I wrote this book in hopes of helping others to realize just because you're being bullied, mentally or physically, by someone, it doesn't have to define you, and it doesn't have to be your ending story.Whosever hands God places this book in, I pray you will come to know God will never leave you in the place where you feel not important or alone. He will give you peace in the midst of a storm. Your life is valuable, and you are loved. Never allow the enemy to make you feel like taking your life is the only answer. God made and created you with purpose. All you have to do is walk into it. Allow God to break you so he can put the broken pieces back in their rightful spot, and you can become whole again.2

Many people have adventures from the past, coming-of-age experiences, narrow escapes, hair-brained adventures with their friends, things that happened when in school or at a specific job, weird family members or friends, strange and unbelievable occurrences, heart rending and passionate love stories. In short, things, which they know, will make a great book or even a best seller They finally set everything up, so they have the method, the opportunity and the motive and then nothing They stare at the white sheet of paper or a computer monitor and their heart races, their palms get sweaty and their mouths dry. They feel like a fraud. Things like Was I just kidding myself? I'm no writer What was I thinking? Streak through their heads and then anxiety sets in, and even fear. Then it becomes a delaying action. It isn't very much fun facing that blank screen. It is similar to a firing squad except that the target is much more up-close and personal, it's your self-esteem and pride.
