At only eight years old Janie Burkett was introduced to a lifelong enemy named insecurity that would drag her down many a dark path and constantly stand between her and true happiness. Janie’s battles with insecurity started with her weight and fear of abandonment, but escalated into so much more. By fifteen she found herself slipping into a lifestyle that promised only despair, turning her back on God and relying on alcohol and men to fill a growing void. Her life went from bad to worse and Janie soon found herself a full-blown addict with a life-threatening eating disorder by age twenty. Janie continued on in a life of darkness, but had no idea how far she had slipped until finally her deeds caught up with her on December 18, 2008, when she stood before a judge and received news that would alter her life forever.
