When I started reading From Pain to Purpose I could not put it down! This was Fact not Fiction! And so many individuals live lives of physical and emotional abuse but don’t have the opportunity to tell their story or survive. Gods Plan and Purpose protected you through your journey of pain! Praise God!

The author spoke to me on a personal level. There was so much emotion and inspiration in this book. The author is a walking testimony! Life took her through so much pain and hell, but she overcame it all and became the most inspiring and faithful person. It showed me that God takes care of his children. This is a must read!

Barbara Pettis From Pain To Purpose is an essential read for anyone going through the pain of violence and abuse or know someone that is. This book will take you though a rollercoaster of emotions from sadness, anger, disappointment, happiness, joy and finally to seeing the goodness of GOD. It is a must read. I highly recommend ordering a copy for yourself and others. Great work Barbara.

“After Barbara’s aunt responded to a desperate phone call from her, the aunt walked into a domestic violence situation between Barbara and her husband. After seeing the look in his eyes, she told her niece to get out. Barbara didn’t listen.”

The abuse continued.

I could not put this book down until I read every chapter. It describes in painful detail domestic, parental and sexual abuse. The author defines this as “Barbara in Pain.”

The book you’re about to read describes the journey of the Barbara I met in 2013. The Barbara with poise, passion and purpose. Her book is empowering, life changing and should be recommended reading in every domestic abuse and violence center. It is an excellent resource that provides insight into how abusers think and how women can recognize when they are being controlled or devalued, and to find ways to get free of an abusive situation. The author writes with breathtaking honesty, exceptional sincerity and personal courage. Thank you, Barbara, for sharing your journey to Purpose!
