Through Whose Eyes:Rise, Child of God by Jacqueline Rainey

The short-stories in Through Whose Eyes: Rise, Child of God are meant to provoke the reader to think about the journey each character takes. The woman in “Turning Corners” finds herself in jail once again and begins to have revelations about the life she’s been leading. She comes to realize that life as a streetwalker has been holding her back and it keeps her running away from the call of God. The spiritual character in the story “Clean” is already a woman of God, but her faith is tested and shaken when she is raped. Though she is surrounded by family and loved ones, she chooses to keep it a secret. The woman in “Waiting for God” remembers her journey through the foster system as she seeks a place of safety and searches for God on a church’s stairs. In the story “My Name Is,” the characters become pretenders, hiding their true emotions behind game faces. They seem unaware that God sees all and loves all. The characters of “Touched” are just that: a spiritual mother who begins losing her faith, even while watching God work through her young daughter to restore spiritual order to their small Southern town. God has always chosen the unexpected! The story “I Use to Be” mirrors closely the author’s life while struggling with addiction, which strips us of our self-respect, our families and our faith. “These stories are reflections of my personal struggles and my victories.”
