Carving a Piece of Heaven is the true story of Faliana Lee’s personal journey of recovery from family violence.
Sadly many who are trapped in a violent relationship are also victims from childhood abuse, as was the case in Faliana’s life. The experience of family violence in her marriage added to the pain, yet the acceptance of God in her life as a young child protected her from being resentful, unforgiving and bitter. The reassurance that she is loved by God kept her sane, even as others around her were depleting that love constantly by adding continual emotional abuse.
Carving a Piece of Heaven offers hope to those who are in violent relationships - both men and women - that complete recovery is possible. The effect of family violence does not stop when one leaves the relationship. Faliana shares her own story and offers guidance to show others the road from abuse to freedom.
“Finding God in this life does not mean building a house in a land of no storms. Rather, it means building a house that no storm can destroy.” Larry Crabb
