Weak and alone, Amy Rebecca Williams grew up as a Colombian orphan in the United States forced to deal with physical, emotional and spiritual anguish. To her, there seemed to be no respite.

The new book, “God’s Plan & the Glory Thereof” by Michele and Jamie Eliassaint, tells the story of Amy who realizes her potential despite blood, sweat and tears.

“Even her church serves as a place of persecution and backlash to her instead of refuge,” Michele Eliassaint said. “It’s a story of incredible adversity, but also of triumph through God.”

The story of Amy is based on the true life experiences of Michele Eliassaint. As a Haitian immigrant who struggled with acceptance and persecution, only her unwavering faith was able to lift her up, dust her off and help her find a place in the world.

“This story will put tears in your eyes, a smile on your face and faith in your heart,” Michele Eliassaint said.
