Item description for Will I Ever Learn?: One Woman's Life of Miracles and Ministry by Hyveth Williams...
Overview This is the incredible autobiography . . . . . . of a young woman who pursued fame and fortune with passionate intensity. The victim of childhood sexual abuse, she decided that no God would allow a little girl to suffer as she had, and so she embraced atheism. She submerged herself in a world of power and politics, drugs, the occult, broken relationships, pain, and emptiness until there was nothing about her to suggest a divine destiny. Only God knew what was in the heart of this cigar-smoking, hard-drinking, profane woman-because He had put it there. With divine urgency the Father sought His lost child, fanning the spark of unconditional love that would not let her go. "So what have I learned through all this?" Pastor Williams asks. "That no matter how dark or how brilliant our past, no matter how great or how humble our present, we have this hope: to be eternally united in Christ in heavenly places, if only we trust and obey!"

GREAT READ! Feb 17, 2006
Hyveth's story was a written account of encouragement and hope for those of us who feel helpless and unloved. She shows the reader that GOD loves us no matter what we've done or where we've been.
Wonderful testimony to the Lord's power Feb 8, 2002
I attended a women's retreat this past Sabbath where Pastor Hyveth Williams was the keynote speaker, and I purchased this book. After reading it, I came away with a renewed spirit and desire to learn to be silent and listen for God's instruction in my own life. This book is a testimony to God's healing power, and the love and care that He has for each of His children. I highly recommend this book to those who may need some encouragement in their Christian walk. Pastor Williams is a very dynamic speaker and has also been given the gift to share her story in a way that touches hearts. She is honest in sharing her difficult experiences within her own denomination in being taken seriously and accepted as a minister of God because she is a woman. As an Adventist, I can identify with what she says, and I also agree with her that our denomination should not be judged negatively as a whole because of negative members who are caught up in legalism; there are no perfect denominations. I never got the sense of being bound by rules and regulations as I read her book, and I agree that each individual can find freedom in Jesus Christ. Christ is a God of freedom and joy, not regulations and legalism. Read the book; you won't be sorry.
growing, healing, witnessing Sep 8, 2000
In this autobiographical work, she traces her growth from a promiscuous, addictive, abusive childhood to her current position as Adventist minister. She tells of the miraculous ways in which she has been guided and healed through the years and how she had to fight tooth and nail against sexism, racism and bigotry in her own church to reach her current popular status. If you are a current or would be Adventist, the book will probably be a useful affirmation of faith, but for the average reader the interesting and absorbing beginning will probably trail off into what I find to be a mediocre preachy ending. Hyeth is obviously a bright dynamic woman who has seen a much bigger slice of life than most of us and who conveys a convincing sense of being guided by unseen hands to reach out and heal herself and many of those around her. Many people seem to need the structure of a limiting faith to get a handle on their life and this book illustrates that religionist process in action for herself and her parish.
