About Donnell Gilbert

Ten years ago I embarked on a courageous journey to write a book based on my life story. Merging together similar stories of friends with identical experiences. For six years I couldn't get past the first chapter. While battling with my own demons and questioning God about my existence, I received a breakthrough. As I fell to my knees praying to God in the dark, I saw disturbing images of my past flashing in and out of view. Speechless in a sesne, I was now face to face with my greatest fear... my past. In that moment I asked God to come into my heart and remove the hate. I was ready to forgive those who caused me pain and grief and unchain the little boy inside of me. That same night I completed the first chapter of my book. Never in a million years did I think my pain would inspire me to write. As forgiveness began to fill my body, I became victorious over my enemies. Through prayer I was convinced that my turbulent past was for a reason. My story was created to help the next Jadorey find his way. In that moment I was inspired to write a book for the child who felt less than their peers. For the child that blamed themselves for the divorce of thier parents. In that moment I was inspired to write a book for the child that was raped and confined to the fear of their abusers. Shamefully blaming themselves for the cause of the situation. In that moment I was inspired to write a book for the single mothers who place thier children in the care of unworthy friends and family members. Unknowingly leaving thier vulnerable children at risk of being sexually violated by the ones they trust. In that moment I was inspired to write a book for the child who's been held captive by family secrets. Existing in a divided home that's been torn apart by lies. I can proudly say I wote that book five years ago! I have never felt so proud about anything in my life. Ten years ago I couldn't get past the first chapter. Today I have a three-book series that I feel will shape the world in awareness of child abuse and poverty. Awareness to what goes on behind close doors to helpless and defenseless children of all ages, right here in the United States. The moment I finished my book series I cried in relief. All of my pain and insecurities were released from my spirit. I was able to FORGIVE all of those who inflicted pain on me. I have no doubt in my mind that this book will do the same for others. #MaybeMyStoryCouldSaveTheNextJadorey #Theaddress79
