Shattered, Kept, Redeemed

Shattered, Kept, Redeemed focuses on how one person can overcome heinous situations and how faith can turn those situations around to benefit not only the person but others as well. Cotchery illustrates how hard work must overcome bitterness and hatefulness in order to heal. This memoir has three components: the journey, mental health, and faith.
