Item description for Ghetto to Godly by Tracy Moody-Williams...
Ghetto to Godly Is your heart heavy? Do you feel burdened by some of the things in your past that embarrass you? Did you know that you can be released from everything and everyone who hurt you? This is a true story of one girls' battle with promiscuity, drug addiction, and other adversities that controlled her life. As she recalls all accounts of her life she is reminded that each time turmoil strikes she finds comfort in the Word of God, but her faith is continuously tested because the bad things in her life seem to out weigh the good. The author of this autobiography is not an ordained minister and she did not attend any school of divinity, but her credibility as a living witness of the power of God gives her possession of something that can never be discredited, her testimony. This book will change somebody's life and destiny. I know it changed mine. My name is Tracy Moody--Williams and this is my story. TRACY MOODY-WILLIAMS is a Paterson, New Jersey native who relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina in 2001. Her move to North Carolina has re--directed the priorities in her life. Always a poet, she has contributed her talent to personalized greeting cards, obituaries, and other writing projects. Since the release of her book, she has dedicated most of her time forming a non-profit organization. This Christian based organization will cater to the needs of teenagers battling drug addictions, domestic violence, and instilling basic life skills to teenagers who are facing single parenthood. She is adamant about helping the casualties of addictive behavioral groups because of her own adversities faced as a teenager.

Saving Tracy Aug 12, 2008
No matter how hard life gets you can prevail with prayer. That is the message author Tracy Moody-Williams presents in GHETTO TO GODLY. The true story of her battle with drugs, disobedience, promiscuity and good versus evil is a strong testimony of what God can do. Tracy tells the story of the role Christianity played in her family life.
As Tracy battled drug addiction, bad relationships and promiscuity, she could not see the value in being a Christian or the role that having a relationship with God played in her mother's life as her mother raised three children without a husband or a job. Yet, they were the best dressed children in the projects and never went without food. Tracy loved and yearned for the street life. She enjoyed the drugs and hurtful relationships thinking that life for her could get no better, until she called out for help from God. As you read her testimony, you find yourself wondering why people put themselves in these kinds of situations.
Although I enjoyed reading GHETTO TO GODLY, it was hard to read page after page without paragraph breaks. Otherwise, it was an okay read. This book did not come off as preachy. Instead, it showed that with acceptance of a higher power, change for the better is inevitable.
