About Connie Rife
Connie grew up in the '60s. It was a turbulent time in American history with the Vietnam war, racial tensions, and assignations. It was all about change and expression, with its laidback hippie attitude and groovy fashions. It was an era full of contrast and confusion that went back and forth between control and freedom, war and peace, love and hate, tradition, and conformity. It created a strong commitment to choice and a place of belonging. This unorthodox period helped contributed to the untraditional quirky friendship Connie shared with God that helped get her through her troubled life. That same beautiful faith and the lessons of her generation have given Connie the courage to change the course of her family's dysfunction and the effect it would have on her. Connie carried that courage through the lifetime it took to write, The Promise. She learned that it didn't matter how good the storytelling in her was if she didn't know how to put it in writing. With the same determination, Connie used to survive as a child, she taught herself how to write to show the story rather than tell it. As painful as it was to write over the years, it was not done in vain. With each draft came a deeper level of healing, setting Connie free.

The Promise: A Memoir Jan 4, 2020
Do miracles really happen, can fairytales come true, is love for real, and how does God fit into the equation? In 1967 during the turmoil of the Vietnam war and the civil rights movement, fourteen-year-old Connie had been thrust into a world of her own turbulence. Being stripped away from her parents, home, friends, and even her clothes. She finds herself wrapped in a towel, her hair dripping, listening to the long deep gulps of the drain swallowing the remnants of her old life. It is in losing everything that the miracle of The Promise comes back into view for Connie. One part of The Promise is that God will never leave her. The other part is about making fairytales come true, finding love, and creating the life she longs for. She held onto her dreams with the encouragement of God and the quirky friendship they shared.
