Her mother believed the only way to help her was to move and leave the marriage multiple times without success. After Leah’s death, her mother finds diaries that Leah wrote at various times in her life.

Although mental illness has received diverse attention at higher institutions of learning worldwide, it is concerning that this is rarely the case amongst Christians who are ever expected to walk and live by faith and all kinds of positive confessions. With this work, our brother has proved that the Lord is mighty to save a mind that is afflicted of the devil. From sharing his own instance, as well as expounding experiences of notable 5-Star Biblical characters, Tokunbo has given us all, sufferers and their families, the opportunity to be open, sincere and believe in a God that wipes away every tears. Dr Ola-Kris Akinola, PhD., Pretoria, South Africa
The human condition is one riddled with complexities about the path we yearn for, who we are and what we believe.
We have become so dogmatic in our own beliefs that when they don’t come to fruition or we find them to be a hoax, our journey can come crashing down with doubt, fear, and uncertainty. Many individuals think they know why they are doing what they do, where they will end up, or who they wish to be in 3 to 7 years until a catastrophic event called life occurs.
We dream to live adventurously but the fear of change confines us to only existing, which is to survive in the fog of society thus creating a disoriented/invisible sensation. The unknown causes our thoughts to imprison us as we ponder if we will ever be content or if we will forever be in debt paying bills. We work hard to be accepted instead of acknowledged. We wonder about our next occupation or what comes after retirement. We worry about things we can’t control then suffer from anxiety. Our breath is limited by our determination and imagination yet those things we can take hold of.
We exclaim at times to be lost, but to be lost is to know where X marks the spot yet unclear on how to get there. So the question is:
What’s the Journey Toward X?
This book is meant to help you not only choose your path, but how to choose it wisely and magnanimously.
