Captive by Ashley Smith #FOLLOWYOURPURPOSE #FLYBY @flybypromotions Review and Giveaway

I was held captive by many things (including constant battles with cancer) but I realized that my beliefs were stronger and that my life was not going to be overcome by even the smallest of things I was able to follow my true purpose #FollowYourPurpose

 CAPTIVE, based on a miraculous true story that drew the attention of the entire nation, is a thrilling drama about the spiritual collision of two broken lives.  When Brian Nichols - on the run as the subject of a city wide manhunt and desperate to make contact with his newborn son - takes recovering meth addict Ashley Smith hostage in her own apartment, she turns for guidance to Rick Warren’s best-selling inspirational book, The Purpose Driven Life.  While reading aloud, Ashley and her would-be killer each face crossroads where despair and death intersect hope.

The movie stars David Oyelowo, who played Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the recent film, Selma.

Cassandra's Review of this book-   The story is strong and the outcome even stronger.  I am not going to say that I enjoyed reading it because of how horrible it was for this author to endure, but I am more strengthened and grateful to have had the privilege of taking the time to sit with this and read the glorious outcome.
