What happens when children can’t trust the adults who are supposed to protect them?

With childhood innocence snatched from her, Dr. Eurita Taylor questioned God. For years, she ran from Him and into the arms of abuse, hunger, and depression. With her personal prodigal son experience, she released the hurt, betrayal, and abandonment to make her way back to the lover of her soul. His Strength in My Weakness chronicles her journey from wallowing in pity, doubt, and unbelief to reconnecting with Her Father. Showered with grace, mercy, and an abundance of love, she understood that the power to overcome was always in reach.

In this book, you will discover:

• Why God wants to turn your self-hatred into self-love

• Strategies to boost your confidence and faith

• How to shift your perspective to see failures as steps toward success

• Scriptures, prayers, and inspirations affirming that He is always with you

• Forgiveness as a tool to bless others and yourself

Dr. Taylor’s story told in her book, His Strength in My Weakness, is powerful, compelling, and at times, raw. She provides a roadmap which shows that no matter how difficult life can be, you can experience hope, breakthrough, and triumph with God.”Pastor Michael Kelly, Grace Fellowship Church Columbus, Ohio

“As I laid in the hospital bed and heard the doctor say, ‘You should have been dead,’ I thought about how reading His Strength in My Weakness comforted me. I am not a spiritual person and had limited understanding of the Bible references, but I read them over and over. Now I believe that He has a reason for keeping me alive.”Cheryl Kaiser, Manager at Speedway

Dr. Eurita Taylor

Writing was never part of my plan. As a child, I had dreams of becoming a successful white-collar executive, picket fence, and all. I loved math, not writing. After reading my papers, teachers told me that they could not figure out my intent or I steered away from the purpose of the assignment. As a college student; it took three attempts before I passed writing class. Since writing was a point of frustration for me, I could not wait to put it behind me. I pursued accounting.

Years later, when my marriage was having problems, I spoke with a counselor. During one session, she had me write my thoughts about things that bothered me: past and present. I enjoyed pouring my emotions onto paper, and even after our sessions ended, I kept writing. I had no idea what was happening. I took no notice.

As time went by, I had an inkling to do something different. I declined with an audible “No!” The voice kept speaking to me to pursue counseling. “No!” I completed my bachelor’s and master’s degrees, while still resisting the call.

After a while, I lost my zeal for accounting. I became frustrated with my life. As a divorced mother with three sons, I often went hungry to make sure my children ate. I trained my body to accept one meal a day. Deep in the pit, with my world crumbling around me, I turned my affections toward the voice that had called out to me for years. I pursued a Ph.D. in counseling. My healing started as I wrote my dissertation. I cried often during the final oral examination to defend my thesis paper. And then His instruction came: convert my dissertation into a book to help others.

I argued with the Lord. As a private person, I did not want to share my life story—and its baggage—for the world to see. I omitted hurtful, embarrassing situations from the initial manuscript of His Strength in My Weakness (HisStrengthTheBook.com). With my life edited, I sent the manuscript to the publisher.

A few days later, he called me. “Your story is very interesting; however, you need to revisit it. Write from your heart.”

I refused, until I realized what He wanted done. When I put my fear aside and let faith take over, I had the most healing experience of my life. I dealt with the physical abuse inflicted by my father and the sexual abuse perpetrated by my uncle. I addressed abandonment, hunger, homelessness, and most of all, self-hatred. I understood the power of forgiveness and granted it to those who mistreated me, including myself. God had purpose for my life, but He had to clean me up so that I could effectively serve others. My journey made sense. Shame was dismissed. I released the issues that anchored me; held me hostage; kept me from fulfilling my destiny.

Brokenness is costly. It affects mind, body, spirit, and finances. He prepared me to holistically address the needs of His daughters by combining my experiences in accounting and counseling. The pruning process was not easy, but it shifted my life and those of my clients.

My inspiration to write was God’s insistence, persistence, and resistance to my fear.
