From the Back Cover
I'm often referred to as a victim of the Boston Marathon bombing.
I refuse to see myself as a victim.
I am a survivor.
This is the story of how I took my life back.
"As a fellow Boston Marathon bombing survivor, I know firsthand that we are not exempt from life's inescapable difficulties. Rebekah Gregory simultaneously demonstrates grace and resilience in the face of an unfair and unimaginable position. The unbridled sharing of her unique story is her gift to the reader."--Jessica Kensky, Boston Marathon bombing survivor
"Riveting . . . transparent . . . compelling . . . hopeful. Rebekah is not only a survivor. She's an overcomer! And she has the scars on the inside and outside to show for her journey to a new normal. Taking My Life Back is a rollercoaster triumph of faith over depression, defeat, and evil. There is a revelation on each page. God is still in control. While life often offers so many reasons to be bitter . . . God wants us to be better. Read Taking My Life Back and you'll find out why and how."--Don Piper, New York Times bestselling author of 90 Minutes in Heaven
