The Reason

Full Product Description

The Reason by Lacey Strum is an encouraging read especially for young people looking for assurance of their value as an individual with a place in God's love, his world and his plan.

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.

The Reason is also the title of Lacey Sturm's song with the repeated chorus:

And now I finally see the reason
'Cause I was made to be yours alone
You formed my heart with your own hands
But I just could not understand
If I gave you my life
I'd be healed by your Grace
I was made for Your love
And gave others Your place

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.

Lacey Sturm 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.

"At its core, Lacey's story is one of hope. From desperation to redemption to victory, this is an amazing journey that apart from God would not be possible. Hers is a story that will encourage and challenge." - Michael W. Smith, singer and songwriter.
