After her mother leaves an abusive marriage, author Daphne Brown and her six siblings are moved to housing projects in the north, a far cry from their southern roots in Arkansas. Ridiculed, by many of the housing project tenants, because of their Christian beliefs and southern values. She and her family sought refuge in their spiritual beliefs. She immersed herself in extracurricular activities to find spiritual, emotional, and mental solace. Blessed by God, Brown's family was able to move to a different part of town, away from the turmoil, trouble, confusion, and dysfunction of the housing projects. Unfortunately, her life took a series of unexpected twist and turns as she faced an absent father, sexual abuse, murder of a family friend, teenage-pregnancy, clinical depression, poverty, domestic abuse, racism, sexism, social invisibility, and a series of dysfunctional relationships. Brown has learned many spiritual, emotional, and mental lessons from her life experiences. Brown presents personal, passionate, and courageous accounts of triumph and deliverance from the "bondage of the past." Through the grace of God, Brown emerged from "the darkness" to become a successful author, motivational speaker, human development specialist and CEO of Daphne Brown Seminars. Join Brown as she embarks on her spiritual, emotional, and mental journey.
