I love to read and this has been one of the better books that I have read in a very long time. Passing the Baton of Light is a true and very encouraging story of a woman who once was a stripper and is now a respected member of the clergy. In all of the craziness that is going on in our world. This is the type of book that we need to read. Uplifting and true story of coming from the bottom and with faith ending up on top.
Passing the Baton of Light shows just how glorious God is and how evil this world can be. It shows that all families have rotten fruit, thorns and weeds. All families suffer from abuse, betrayals and choices. All of these choices have consequences. It isn’t just your family we all have our skeletons and family secrets.
Passing the Baton of Light is a true story that is laced with miracles. Teenagers that grow together, the never ending story of a mother trying to save her wayward child, and the grandmother that is always on her knees praying for her family. I know my granny’s prayers have saved and kept me safe more than one time. Satan doesn’t stand a chance against a God fearing, down on her knees praying Grandmother.
