Tonight's special guest is Patrice Faye Little from Dacula, Georgia, who studies for a Doctor of Nursing Practice at Georgia Baptist College of Nursing at Mercer University. Patrice says she'll be delighted to share her insights with the NAASCA family. She the author of the book, 'Out of Crazy Born Genius'. As a survivor of child abuse that continued into her late twenties, she personally and professionally knows how the restructuring of life after abuse is a work in progress. Recovering from early trauma while developing into an adult can be daunting to any survivor. Her last encounter with her physically abusive father's rage, as he reached for a machete and came towards her, resulted in Patrice herself being jailed. "I spent 22 hours in jail reflecting on how did I avoid trouble all these years and end up in jail at risk of losing everything?" Now she offers her book 'Out of Crazy Born Genius' as a practical guide to others to transcend the craziness of child abuse so they can become a healthy and functional adult. Patrice asks, "Have you survived child abuse but find yourself struggling with adult milestones?" and "Why do survivors struggle with self, career, faith, friends, an finance after abuse?" In her heartfelt book, Patrice shares how her daily disciplines for seven principle areas of life emerged from person experience. She demonstrates the framework for mastering daily disciplines .. preparation, reflection, and repetition. She offers us steps to create our own disciplines to overcome childhood trauma and prevent self-sabotage. Patrice's passionate message of resilience is innovative and necessary to help others break the inter-generational cycle of abuse.
