In today’s society, communities, cultures, and religions have standards. Those standards are established through traditions, customs, laws, and beliefs. Moral and ethical codes provide guidance in staying true to what a person believes. When an established belief is in contradiction to how a person lives, rejection and judgment is usually made.

In Becoming a Mother While Losing My Own, author Claudia Parker writes an amazing testimony of God’s grace. Her story takes readers through her life with riveting accounts of pain, rejection and scandal. A victim of physical and emotional abuse from childhood and a product of a broken home produced a determination in her to have an unwavering faith.

After Claudia accepts Christ, her capricious relationship with her mother is reconciled. Their bond is strengthened when she finds out she’s expecting her first child. Unfortunately, she learns that her mother may not live long enough for them to meet.

Becoming a Mother While Losing My Own is a story of resilience. Invaluable lessons will be learned as faith and the human spirit triumph over extreme adversity. Readers will witness how God’s mercy gave a woman a chance to create a family life vastly different than the one she grew up in. A truly inspiring read, this book will move everyone to tears.
