The day Lacey Sturm planned to kill herself was the day her grandmother forced her to go to church, a place Lacey thought was filled with hypocrites, fakers, and simpletons. The screaming match she had with her grandmother was the reason she went to church. What she found there was the Reason she is alive today. With raw vulnerability, this hard rock princess tells her own story of physical abuse, drug use, suicide attempts, and more--and her ultimate salvation. She asks the hard questions so many young people are asking--Why am I here? Why am I empty? Why should I go on living?--showing readers that beyond the temporary highs and the soul-crushing lows there is a reason they exist and a purpose for their lives. She not only gives readers a peek down the rocky path that led her to become a vocalist in a popular hardcore band, but she shows them that the same God is guiding their steps today.I suppose it was inevitable for my siblings andme to all love and make music of some kind growing up. ... And as my expression explains, I was amazed to see my mom coming around the corner with a bass guitaraheld out to me. I had wantedto play the drums for a while, but I reasoned that if I was goingto cart an instrument around to friendsa#39; houses, it would probably be a painto try to carry a drum set.
