About Edit

Some of events outlined include: complications at her birth, financially and emotionally difficult childhood, depressed teen years, her encounter with Christian faith, and her time with Flyleaf. In more detail, Sturm also discusses the death of her cousin, Kelly - of which she attributes the main reason she became an atheist.

"There is a reason you exist . . .

The day Lacey Sturm planned to kill herself was the day her old life ended. As an atheist who hated Christians, she thought church was a place for hypocrites, fakers, and simpletons. After a screaming match with her grandmother, she ended up in the back of a sanctuary, hating everyone in the room. But what happened in that room is The Reason she is alive today.

With raw vulnerability, this hard rock princess tells her story of physical abuse, depression, suicidal struggles, and more--and her ultimate salvation. She asks the hard questions--Why am I here? Why am I empty? Why should I go on living?--showing that beyond the temporary highs and the soul-crushing lows is a reason each of us exists and a purpose for our lives."
