Protected by Purpose, Dorinda Walker reveals her onerous childhood experiences, triumphs and life lessons providing a compelling real-life narrative that validates the power of unconditional love, the process of forgiveness, and embracing faith to not only survive, but to overcome and lead a fulfilling life of purpose.
Dorinda’s inability to cope resulted in an enraged young woman with low self-esteem, no moral value or integrity and no hope, dropping out of high school, becoming a drug dealer, sexual promiscuity with much older men and attempting suicide twice—all before the age of 18.
Dorinda’s life was spiraling out of control. Then, she experienced a few life-altering experiences, including being pressed against a wall and while being frisked by the police outside of the projects, a voice in her head said, “You’re going to be 18 in two weeks. You’re either going to die or go to jail.” It was the sign Dorinda needed to take the step to leave her problematic life behind and embrace faith in God. This belief did not stem from a religious upbringing, but from an ingrained knowledge of His existence.
