In her book, I Was Killed by My Best Friend: A Story of My Death to Sin and My Life in Christ, author Alice Leszek tells an engaging story of one girl’s faith and struggles in life. This book is an inspiring read that speaks to those who need encouragement in life.

Blessed with a loving family in Africa, she was a girl no different from any girl growing up in America. However, her life soon becomes nothing like what most girls have encountered. She goes through stressful times as war becomes a looming threat and causes financial loss and periodic separation from loved ones; gossip leads to mistrust and broken hearts; and HIV/AIDS becomes a source of confusion and fear.

Furthermore, an antiquated system of marriage leads to homelessness and total loneliness and a reconciled friendship leads to temporary comfort, but at a terrible cost. With all of these trials and tribulations, she relies on her belief in God to survive.

Readers can follow this young girl’s journey and witness how, with a full heart, she was able to overcome adversity with God. I Was Killed by My Best Friend: A Story of My Death to Sin and My Life in Christ is also written for readers who wish to discover countless articles that deal with Christian living, mankind’s purpose in life, and more.
