Shauna

I slept in the car one night with my newborn baby. That was one of those “God, why me” moments.

Why can't my marriage be like the movies?

Rachel

"I actually told him that. “I’m not in love with you anymore."

Kids in school mocked my club foot.

Rikhard

Bam! They hit me in the face with this metal baseball bat. They asked me again; “Give us your money! Give us your money!”

Mom was very angry, very malicious.

Oscar

“You’re going to end up like your father, a bum on the street, a loser, an alcoholic.” As a kid, growing up hearing those things hurt me. I thought, “Man, after everything I do for you, this is how you love me.”

God told me to go up a remote gravel road.

I Got out of my truck and walked towards the shack. As I stepped up to the door it opened about an inch, and a double barrel shotgun stuck out of the door. At about that time I wondered if God knew what he was doing.

Got another chance to live right after shooting him in the head.

Darren

They took me to the dessert out in Tucson, AZ and tried to make me dig a hole. They were going to bury me in the hole. So I told them; “Kill me and dig it yourself.”
