Unbroken: A Memoir
All the furniture in the house got wrecked except this one old wooden china cabinet in my grandmother’s kitchen, which somehow remained standing despite all odds. One night, in the midst of a prayer, I glanced over at it and thought, If this cabinet could talk… What madness it had seen. The Lord spoke to me then. “You’re both here, and you both survived, and just like this cabinet, you remain unbroken.”
Tracy Elliott led a rough life. This honest memoir takes you into the heart of the gritty realities of the street and a life of addiction. But it is the story of a broken person’s history and how God taught her that, in his loving eyes, she is whole.
As a young, orphaned girl growing up in her grandmother’s house with five alcoholic uncles, Tracy witnessed constant violence and experienced abuse. Later in life, as a stripper in her mid-twenties, she lived hard and suffered the consequences. Now, she tells how her life was put back together by the grace of God.
Tracy says, “No matter where you came from and what you’ve done, God wants you. No one is unforgivable, and no one is beneath His grace. God loved me when I was seven years old in old brown clogs, He loved me when I was working in strip clubs, and He loves me still.”
Unbroken is a moving story of a young woman who has discovered the power of God’s loving forgiveness and grace? and who wants to share it with a hurting world.
