She has told her story in a beautiful way and has shared how God can heal a broken heart. By Stacey Sabatini

I personally know Rhonda as we both attended the same church in Hawaii. She has told her story in a beautiful way and has shared how God can heal a broken person. Rhonda has had to suffer so much most of her life and yet she has used it to His Glory! I think God inspired her to write this book so that she can reach many, who like her have suffered much, and through her story, hopefully, can be healed the way she was when one commits their life to Jesus. I look forward to the Bible Study which is to follow and feel that her book and study would be very useful as a prison ministry or study for women who have suffered abuse. Thank you, Rhonda, for opening your heart and showing us how good God is all of the time!

Beautiful Story of redemption and healing. By Anthony F Gomes

Precious book. I loved the sweet sharing of her life. Her authenticity and vulnerability were evident all throughout. It kept me captivated and seemed encouraging for anyone who may be in situations of abuse. I appreciate her having a focus of relying on Christ and how she interweaves meaningful scripture. I also admire how she sets up the entire testimony to honor Christ and to encourage others to look to him.

When her second husband came to ask her for her hand in marriage. That was a man truly in love with her and her children.

Too many to list. This book is hard on the heart strings. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a true story that follows much heartbreak and has a triumphant ending.

Beautifully Broken to Beautifully Healed. By Jayda

Rhonda’s story is heartbreaking in places, but I respect her for being so open about her life and everything she’s endured. There are many who need to read true stories like this one to help strengthen their own faith. Rhonda gives God glory for her healing from the inside out. She is proof of just how far God can bring someone…anyone. Thank you, Rhonda, for gifting this story to me. I plan to put my copy on my coffee table in my coaching office. I believe others will be blessed by it, so I intend to pay it forward.
