In the game of baseball, you hear those dreaded words, yoooou’re oouuuuut!! Those are the exact words Amy heard after making the worst mistake she had ever made in her almost 28 years. She had always worked hard to be the “good girl,” so feelings of guilt and shame had been all new to her. Amy thought there would be no way God could ever use her life again, so the long journey down many wrong roads began. Ultimately leading her to seeing God for Who He truly was, experiencing His grace and His love in a way she had never seen before.

Throughout the pages of The Testimony I Never Wanted, Amy paints a picture of how she got herself into some messy situations and ended up doing things she thought she would never do in a million years. Amy explains how she was able to overcome the very things that for nine years tried to destroy her, by facing each one head on. Sitting right in the middle of the heartache and pain, she didn’t back away until all had been confronted. Throughout it all, she allowed God to place His healing hand on each hurt once and for all. Now Amy speaks from a place of strength about the very things that had held her captive, sharing the freedom found in Jesus, so others will find hope in their lives.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

One of the hardest things to do as an author is to tell your own story honestly and openly - warts and all. This is exactly what Amy Blackwell does in The Testimony I Never Wanted. This book is a bold look at the series of bad choices and wrong turns Amy took in a downward spiral through her life. But, it’s also a wonderful testimony to the healing power of faith, grace, redemption, and forgiveness. The reason Amy has the internal strength to share her darkest moments with the world is because she hopes her tale helps someone else. I have no doubt it will! There may be a part of you that needs to read this book. She is brave enough to write it because a part of her knows you can be brave enough to read it.
