Publisher's Summary

Each of us is living a story - the story of our life. For Sam Collier, his story started with rejection, because when he and his twin sister were born, their biological mother gave them up for adoption. Though Sam loved his adoptive family, life sometimes felt like a puzzle missing crucial pieces. But it was also the way God would reach into Sam's life and show him that he didn't have to write his own story - because it was really God who was telling his story through Sam. 

In this deeply personal yet remarkably universal book, Sam Collier tells his inspiring story of abandonment, sacrifice, gratitude, and rescue, revealing how God is always doing something bigger and better than we might imagine. That he has a purpose and a plan for every single one of us. That he is always telling his greater story through our trials, our relationships, and our triumphs. 

If you're in the middle of a challenging time and long to know that God is working through it, Sam's story will teach you how to see the big picture, even when there are pieces missing.

I thought it would be more about your adoption a

I thought this book was going to be more about your life as an adopted person or how you found your birth mother and what try of relationship you have with her now.

Book Club Selection/Five Star Rating

This book was my book club's selection for March, 2021. I thoroughly enjoyed the chronicled life of Pastor Sam Collier before his quest to find his biological mother, which was at
the suggestion of his adoptive father. His twin sister was the one who landed the spot on the Steve Harvey Show. Some of our book members opined that the quest for the biological mother was slow in developing, which caused them to abandon the book. Others of us thoroughly enjoyed the journey of his and his sister's life before reaching that climatic part of the book. Pastor Collier's transparency was so refreshing and honest. Being a Christian is a one-time decision, but the journey from there is often full of pitfalls and wrong turns. Realizing that God is ordering our steps and weaving our lives is a remarkable revelation for all believers. It lets us know that His ultimate plan is always for His Glory, not ours. I would highly recommend this book!

Such an inspiring story.

Being a young Man I’ve been dealing with sexual sin.
I could relate to his story on wanting to be delivered on destroying my own dream. This book is spiritually moving. It’s brings hope to your mind to help you realize God is in Control.
