“I hope my story serves as a source of hope and encouragement to those facing their own battles with mental illness and faith,” Christopher reflects. “It is essential to remember that even amidst life’s darkest moments, there is a plan – it might be undone, rewritten, or retold, but it is ours to embrace and cherish.”
“A Plan Undone” is a captivating memoir that reveals the resilience of the human spirit and the power of unwavering faith. It is a profound testament to the strength found in embracing one’s journey, no matter how unpredictable the path may be.
