“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Cor. 4: 8-9
Patti has been hard pressed, perplexed, persecuted, and struck down during her life. She has been physically, mentally, and sexually abused throughout her childhood leaving her suicidal at age 13. She had two failed marriages to the same man who couldn’t give up his addictions, losing everything leaving her a single mother of three and later homeless. She then had an advanced rare form of stage three breast cancer, and was in an auto accident that left her with a brain injury and chronic pain.
