Surviving Rejection is a first hand account of what living life based on the opinions and thoughts of others, to discovering the definition of life God purposed you for.
I am Valarie Monique Payne, born Valarie Monique Conner, to Cora L. Conner February 20, 1985 who passed away two days after my birth. I lived without knowing the bond of my mother or the identity of my Father. Life has not been easy. I have always looked for the approval, acceptance, love from others. I suffered molestation, abuse, depression, low self esteem and a host of insecurities. At the age of ten I gave my life to Christ and started seeing myself through His eyes, and received my calling in life, and started in ministry and didn't really realize the set up. I directed the choir, I was the secretary for my home church, I taught Sunday School, all starting at the age of 10 while broken, confused, and rejected. I've experienced heart ache and heart break, being homeless I've been up and I've been down but the Praise Report is my story did not end there, I SURVIVED....THROUGH THE GRACE OF GOD AND YOU CAN TOO
