“In this book I discuss how my past failures help prepare me for future successes and although I may have made a mess of my life, God never gave up on me,” Lumpkins said. “God didn’t change His mind about my future just because I made mistakes in the past. Overall, this book encourages the reader to pick up where they are now and work towards the dreams and goals that they have in the face of so many mistakes.”
