“What Child Is This?”: a compelling work on overcoming life’s challenges and a recounting of how God is working in one’s life all along. “What Child Is This?” is the creation of published author, Ann Lapp-Haught, a passionate Christian whose acceptance of Jesus Christ has changed her life.

Lapp-Haught shares, “By the time I had completed my second round in 7B and passed by a slim margin into the first half of the eighth grade (8A), I had made my way through most of the catechism lessons. Even though I did poorly in school, I was learning, really learning about God! I learned that He loved me no matter what I had done! I felt so ashamed of myself, so full of guilt! My heart was so filled with hate for this man, and a mixture of love and hate for my own mother, and yes, even hatred for myself! I couldn’t imagine that anyone could love me. I felt that my hands were dirty because of what they had to do, and that I’d never ever get them clean. My heart was slowly becoming hardened. I couldn’t forgive them for what they were doing to me, but worse than that, I couldn’t forgive myself! I couldn’t love myself and felt that no one else could either. Who could love someone like me?”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Ann Lapp-Haught’s new book is a fascinating account of how the Lord is ever-present in her life as she deals with the twists and turns of her journey as an abused child and the opportunities he has given her to use her musical and theatrical talents for his kingdom.

Lapp-Haught writes the periods in her life in a descriptive and transparent style. She has also provided various photographs to support the timeline of her narrative.
