For many years I have known that I would one day write a book. The Lord confirmed this several times, and I knew it would happen, I just didnâ€™t know when. I knew I wanted to put on paper my vivid memories of â€œthatâ€ day that God gave me the vision for the Crabb Family journey, a long time before there was a bus and a career. This was Â before there was a â€œbrandedâ€ Â Crabb Family. Itâ€™s a God story, a miracle story. The manyÂ seasons of pain, the fight withÂ evilness to keep my sanity after I was attacked in a dark parking lot by a random stranger, who cut my throat and left me for dead. That story needed to be told. My souvenir would be 43 stitches in my throat, and a lifetime of post traumatic stress syndrome. The surprise divorce I was â€œhandedâ€ a few months before my 50th birthday, the disbandment of the touring Crabb Family, and being forced to start over at 50. I was 52 and unemployed. This â€œsurvivalâ€ story needed to be shared. But it had to be the â€œrightâ€ time.
The first week of November 2014, the Lord instructed me in specifics. He said, â€œGo to a mountain, I will meet you there.â€ I know this sounds a bit super spiritual. However, this is exactly what happened. I went to the mountain. I poured my heart out to Him for days upon days. I talked. He listened. I cried a river of tears during those days onÂ that mountain with God, and I wrote 90,000 words, some of which were gut wrenching chapters, but together, WE did it.
I pray as you walk through my life, my journey, you will be encouraged and realize that YOU TOO are going to make it. This literary journey is candid, a bit raw, and packed full of â€œGodâ€ moments. I pray you will read it, be encouraged, Â and understand that what doesnâ€™t kill US, truly makes us stronger.
