Two-time Grammy award winning artist, Lecrae, and Grove Park Renewal are excited to announce a partnership coordinated with the release of his latest book I Am Restored: How I Lost My Religion But Found My Faith. Lecrae is a Grove Park Renewal board member and supporter of the work on Atlanta’s Westside. In partnership, Lecrae and Grove Park Renewal will send the book to supporters who contribute at least $75 toward 2020 end of year campaign.
In I Am Restored, Lecrae recounts how the trauma of his past: sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression created chaos in his life. Focusing on forgiveness, Lecrae shows how the brokenness of the past can bring healing to ourselves and connections to others. His honest reflections on his own life and the pain therein open opportunities for true healing found in God. This inspirational auto-biography focuses on true identity and worth as defined by our relationship with God in Christ.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to proclaim the love of God to the community through this new book and my music. The opportunity to serve on the Grove Park Renewal board and support the organization’s work is a privilege.”
Grove Park Renewal is a non-profit organization focused on the renewing and restoring of the Grove Park neighborhood on Atlanta’s Westside.
