Resilient: My Story, God's Glory
Author: Robin T. Terry
One Friday night, Robin Terry made a decision that forever changed her life. Pregnant and scared at fifteen years old, she braved the challenge of becoming a single mother. Raised in a middle-class family from West Point, Mississippi, Robin’s pregnancy was a shock and disappointment to her family. Although she could have embraced failure, quitting wasn’t an option. Carrying the hurt and betrayal she faced from rejection and the need for validation, Robin sought acceptance in tumultuous relationships that nearly destroyed her. Because of everything she faced, including ridicule in the church, Robin questioned her Christian faith; a faith she’d grown to love as a child.
RESILIENT: MY STORY, GOD’S GLORY is a story of a teenage mother’s search for identity and belonging throughout her adolescence and young adulthood. This is a coming-of-age story about perseverance, faith, forgiveness, and resilience embedded in Robin’s DNA, forcing her to come to terms with the life she’d chosen for herself. Through all of her obstacles, she still believed that God had great plans for her life. In this story, you will read how Robin evolved from a fragile fifteen-year-old pregnant girl into the resilient woman she is today, Dr. Robin Terry.
