"Finally, I knelt by my bed, risking rejection by the One who counted most...."
Marion Duckworth was young when her mentally ill father was institutionalized. In her child's mind she concluded, "Daddy decided to leave me. "Growing up in poverty as "Crazy Izzie's daughter," Marion believed she was someone worth abandoning.
"It would be years before Marion realized that her Father God would never stop caring for her. As she writes, "God's love healed the wounds created by abandonment. All through the pain, He created golden moments in my plain book of days-signs that He is my very own Father."
"Naked on God's Doorstep" is the story of life in a Coney Island tenement, a cockroach-infested Manhattan apartment, and an apartment above a tavern. It's the story of pennies saved in sewing machine drawers, of a startling midnight on the beach, and of a many-windowed living room where miracles happened. It's a story of longing to be safe someday.
It's a story of hope.
Marion weaves her own story of her redemption with the stories of others, sharing practical helps as well. The result is a journey of healing that guides us all in transforming pain from the past into something beautiful.
This story is for anyone who needs to know that God will never leave....
