Breaking Through A Cracked Foundation by Dr. Candace Goodwin

In the past, tears flowed down my face when I thought about my life. Invariably, there are those challenging moments throughout any of our lives. Breaking Through a Cracked Foundation describes my journey, and the healing I received throughout my life while growing up in a home with an abusive/alcoholic father, being sexually abused, and being married to a man with an addiction to pornography.

I believe each of us can overcome difficulties and break through our cracked foundations and live a life with purpose.
