“I was present when houses were raided, and I watched everybody around me go to jail.” Lavora McCool shares her journey as she finds her way to realizing her dream – to live a life with a purpose – which, to many, may not be easy to come by; and not without a share, sometimes unfair, of fear, anxiety, pain, depression, and emotional distress.
She grew up with the yoke of childhood responsibilities and, later, went through a great deal of confusion finding herself. As she struggled to help sustain the needs of the family, working two jobs, she got caught up in the wrong crowd. She found herself living with people who were themselves victims of dysfunctional households and saw the gangster’s life to be the only way there is. Little by little she embraced the gang-life mentality and believed in the principles of the street codes. No sooner did it become clear – she was lost.
She, who once was lost, is now found! With the help of her Guards and Angels and a ton of unpleasant experiences, she decides not to put her life on hold any longer. She rediscovers her worth and finds the strength to let go and trust God who works in mysterious ways.
