Don’t let this take your life away!<br /> I'm reading your book and am loving it. God is really doing a work in me. I've had a rough 3 years. My daughter was born extremely pre-mature @ 23 weeks, 1.5 lbs in 08'. That was a long first year of her life. But she lived & didn't die & is thriving! Then this year in January my husband & best friend of 15 years told me he didn't love me anymore. To make a long story short he abandoned, the Lord, four years of Bible college, me and our 4 year old son & now 2yr old daughter for my dear friend and sister in the Lord. I have to tell you it was so difficult at first. I was a stay at home mom and he left me with nothing. My Church stepped in & stepped up & God revealed himself so mighty! When I smacked myself in the face and made myself quit crying & get a job and provide for my babies & began to lean on God for everything. That's when the miracle took place! God's been so good to me, to show me just what you’re saying in your book "don't let this take your life away"! I'm growing stronger everyday! I'm so excited about this book. <br /> —B.P.<br />
A healing balm for all areas of society!<br /> "As I read this book, Live! You Didn’t Die! I began to see that it would be a healing balm for all areas of society! Many have endured hurt and pain in their lives and have no understanding of how to overcome. Reading this book gives one the pathway to a successful victory that comes with experiencing forgiveness. A great read…“<br /> — R. G.<br />
Acknowledge the fear of rejection!<br /> This "giant" little book opened the doors of so many feelings of unworthiness and never feeling as if I measured up to the expectations of significant persons in my life. Although, I do know that I was a wanted child in my parents lives, I have always lingered behind what I wanted to accomplish in my life. Was it the divorce? Was it not wanting to commit to another marriage? It was the fear of failure again. Through the readings and the scriptures, the book and God's Word gave me more of a sense of security in the steps I must take in my life. I can see where the feelings of un-acceptance in the life of a member of my family comes from. Where a mother doesn't have the connection to the child growing inside of her, after a tragic time in the mother's life. That child is unexpectedly born, grows up and never fully feels the free love of her mother. Even in adulthood, that child still feels that rejection as the she grew in her mother's womb. The mother's love for her child has not come through as that wall will be there until the acknowledgement of the rejection is initially felt. Thanks to you Sandra for being an open vessel to present the Lord's Word in the way that can be fully understood and accepted. This will touch many lives....<br />— Diane D.<br />

Freedom from Rejection!<br /> AWESOME! A must read! I recommend "Live! You Didn't Die" to everyone who has been entrapped in a vicious cocoon of rejection. Rejection affects all areas of a person's life; family, friends, school, work, home, mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially. "Live! You Didn't Die" will impact your life with "truth and scriptures." As I read this book, a healing began to "unzip" the remains of a "cocoon" of rejection that held me bound and wrapped with defeat and low self-esteem. Like a butterfly; I have been set free! Sandra, thank you for your honestly, transparency and mentorship through the sharing of your life story "Live! You Didn't Die." You are a wonderful example of a "woman of God" to us all! If you are suffering and struggling with rejection PLEASE read this book. Rejection has no mercy, it will enslave you to your emotions. This vicious enemy is relentless and will consume your life and affect every area of your life. Allow Sandra's true life testimony and God's living Word of scriptures embrace you. You will experience healing and freedom in your spirit and soul. The kind of freedom that will set you free and will change your life forever. <br /> — Dee C.<br />

Hope for the future!<br />As a sister of the author, I was very excited to read her book because I knew of her painful life experiences of rejection and of her thirst and hunger for the Lord that brought about this new person who totally put her trust in God. In her obedience, God gave her wisdom and the knowledge to write of her painful experiences in a unique way as a tool that others may also be healed. "Whoever drinks the water I shall give will never thirst." (Jn. 4:14) The healing words that spoke loudly to my heart was how easy it is to test the spirit of a thought and where to plant it when it is not of the Father for He only gives the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This book brought tears of joy to me. <br /> — Mercedes B.<br />
Encouragement<br />I had heard this was an interesting book but was little prepared for the depth and quality of the story that unfolded. Every person experiences rejection to one degree or another since we are all born into a world of imperfect people. This book tells the author's life story of overcoming the consequences of rejection in her life. My favorite thing about this book was the way the author loaded it with pertinent scriptures dealing with reasons for, consequences of and victory over rejection. These scriptures and the encouraging testimony of the writer will help anyone dealing with rejection, abandonment, betrayal or death of a loved one. What a great tool this book will be in the hands of leaders as they help others with these same issues. <br /> — Lori P.<br />

Compelled to pick up your book!<br />I was compelled to pick up your book and just read. Wow, Lady....this is powerful. Just about to start Ch 4 and I have already been flooded with emotions, memories and tears. I know I have more chapters to go, but I am enjoying this journey from all perspectives as a woman; a Mom, a daughter, spouse/relationship and just me (which I often put on the back burner). Thank you for sharing your story!!<br /> — Lynn M.<br />
