Book MockUp NOT BY MY OWN 6.16.17.png

Not By My Own is a woman’s remarkable story inspired by the Bible verse John 5:30, which starts with, “I can do nothing on my own.” Devereaux Sawyer is a young woman dealing with feelings of insecurity and worthlessness who finds herself in an abusive relationship that later leads to teenage pregnancy. As a child, she was sexually abused by a family member, and that abuse greatly affected how she viewed herself. Abuse was the very root of the insecurity that Devereaux struggled with; she would not identify this until later in life. Most of her adult life was spent trying desperately to get to the root of the problem through self-reflection, prayer, and some counseling. She discovered that she had buried painful memories of incest that loomed in her past. It was just too difficult to face on her own. Thank God she did not have to. Throughout this book, you will see the challenges Devereaux faces as she fights to become free from the bondage of abuse and generational curses.
