Broken Chains (Anthology)
Life’s obstacles can seem overwhelming. When you are struggling to deal with issues such as health problems, the death of loved ones, prejudice, domestic violence, depression, and more, it can be all too easy to give up and allow yourself to be chained by your circumstances. But you can break your chains and overcome your obstacles.
In Broken Chains, author Ruby Mabry and seven others relate the stories of how they were empowered to overcome their personal trials. These women have dealt with hardship and yet continue to persevere. While some of them relate problems they have overcome in the past and others tell about present problems that are ongoing and will extend into the future, all of them have refused to be defeated by their challenges. Instead, they have chosen to break the chains of adversity and live with purpose.
