MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MOTHER’S DAY 2019 SPECIAL REPORT
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV)
BEACON OF LIGHT
Pamela Kennedy was just 13 years old, barely a teenager.
Yet, even at that tender age, Kennedy was spiritually — and naturally — saddened by a dreaded enslavement, of sorts, one that could have very well ended her life prematurely.
One that, truth be told, had often left her essentially questioning her very existence.
Once plagued and spiritually incarcerated by a drug addiction that spanned roughly two decades — from the time she was 13 until she reached 33 years of age, to be technical — Kennedy’s Creator deemed it absolutely essential to provide for her a way of escape long enough for her to assume an assignment that would eventually silence her critics once and for all.

A Detroit-area writer, Kennedy authored the book entitled, “Coming Out Of Utter Darkness: Memoirs Of An Addict And How I Survived.”
All things considered, the mere fact that God allowed Kennedy to escape and conquer her seemingly uncontrollable addiction is a massive miracle in its own right, one that had consequently fueled her desire to compose her assortment of testimonies in a tear-jerking, emotionally-driven book.
“I started writing while I was in the treatment center,” Kennedy told Making Headline News this week. “It was painful to mentally and emotionally relive my past.”
Still, as Kennedy vividly recalls, it was a past that had to happen and unfold so that God could strategically position and equip her for such a time as now — a time whereby she can tell with boldness how her Creator orchestrated on her behalf an unlikely comeback for the ages.
A book that is accompanied by 76 pages, Kennedy’s “Coming Out Of Utter Darkness: Memoirs Of An Addict And How I Survived” is two years removed from its much-anticipated release and is this writer’s version of a tell-all project, one in which she appropriately recalls her fervent quest to survive, all the while nurturing two children.
“Today, I’m clean and sober, born again with 27-plus years in recovery, and I share that there is life after your issues,” Kennedy writes in a detailed breakdown of her at Amazon.com. “The grace and mercy of God has brought me, my two children, and many of my other family members to His redemptive love.”
For Kennedy, it seemed that even while being confined to a local drug treatment center, she was blessed to have discovered her purpose as a Christian-based author.
That’s because it was during that time she began composing a book she finally finished in 2017.
To her credit, it has been a constant page-turner ever since.
“I wanted to tell my story in hopes that it would give others with the same struggles hope to know that there is a way out,” Kennedy said of a book that is steadily generating favorable feedback. “I want to offer hope to the families of anyone who may be trapped in the snares of an enemy that cannot be seen with the natural eye.”
While other books undoubtedly top her strategic objectives in the foreseeable future, Kennedy is overwhelmingly grateful of the fact that God spared her life so that she could aid others to draw closer to Him.
In that order.
“God’s purpose for allowing me to write this book has been to assist many to come to a place of manifested healing and deliverance that they never thought possible,” Kennedy said. “As I now have 29-years of sobriety, I do plan to write another book on more of the process. I believe that if we would trust God’s process, we would see more clearly His purpose.”
Something to which this godly, big-hearted and devout woman of faith can dauntless speak on.
So much for all those times she found herself questioning her very existence.
