“As a pastor, one of my greatest joys is to watch God change lives. Lucy is one of those people who became completely changed when she reached the end of herself and found God waiting there for her. She and her husband, Richard, became solid leaders in the church and their testimony has been an inspiration to so many others. I have full assurance that as her story unfolds, her readers will be encouraged to overcome their own hardships by partnering with a God who specializes in making the impossible possible.”

“From riveting stories to life giving truth Lucy invites us into the most intimate places of her journey.  With people chasing every way imaginable through the fire, God has given us a gift with this book. Lucy points us to the true healer – to the only one who can restore – to the only one who can give us the peace we all so desperately seek – Jesus.”

“Through the Fire is Lucy’s story. Well, actually, Lucy is God’s story of taking the tatters of abuse and making a tapestry of love. Her hope is that this becomes your story too. For all who have been abused, dispossessed, discarded, or shattered, Through the Fire is your path to making meaning out of the pain and beauty from the ashes.”

“I just finished Through the Fire and loved it. I’ve known Lucy and her husband Richard since High School and thought I knew them, until reading Lucy’s story. Her ability to share at the deepest level is inspiring and helped me look at relationships in a new light. It’s a book for both men and woman to use a tool in examining their own lives and being empathetic and caring for others who may be hurting and not even know it. Take the time to read Through the Fire and reconnect with yourself and the ones you love.” -John A.
