Quick Overview

Abused and unwanted, Cheri found a life of violence and addiction from which she knew there was no escape--until she was shown the power of God's unconditional love.

"To hear Cheri Peters's story is to be forever changed. To meet Cheri in person is to encounter a flesh-and-blood, bona fide miracle."

Sitting in a posh restaurant with $86,000 and seven pounds of pure cocaine on the table, Cheri knew she had finally risen above her blighted existence. Finally someone loved her. A "shiny man" who could rescue her from the drug houses, old cars, and X-rated dance clubs she had called home for more than a decade. Her new life might be scary, but it was also exciting!

A few hours later her new love was holding a gun to her head, promising to kill her if she didn't find his missing money. For the thousandth time she learned that love is just a word men use to get what they want from girls like her. It always demands something in return and lasts only as long as the passion of the moment.

What would it take to rescue an abused, illiterate, unloved barroom dancer from the streets and turn her into a leader who would inspire others to help "throwaway" kids find meaning and purpose in their lives? What Cheri needed was love. Unconditional love. But how could she find it?

Read the incredible story of one woman's encounter with the power of true love, and how that love is changing lives today. It will change your life.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Cheri Peters


Cheri Peters is the founder and director of True Step Ministries, a ministry of restoration, education, and empowerment for at-risk teenagers. Cheri is in full-time ministry for troubled young people because she was one herself.

Between the ages of thirteen and twenty-three, Cheri lived on the streets. Sexually abused by her father, unloved and rejected by her mother, she carved out a rugged existence amid urban America's teeming homeless population. The story of how God found and rescued this diamond in the rough is told in Cheri's first book, Miracle From the Streets (Pacific Press, 1997).

"A few years ago, while sitting in church," says Cheri, "someone asked me if I would share my testimony on how I came to know God. I was hesitant. If they found out my true background, would they want me in their church? But the requests kept coming, so I shared with my congregation how I came to know our Savior. Since then, more requests have come in. I wondered, Why would anyone want to hear the lurid details of my past? Then I realized, it was not those awful experiences that people were focusing on, it was the testimony of the power of God to reach down and set free those whom Satan had chained. Praise God!"

God Is Crazy About You is Cheri's second book. She lives with her husband Brad and daughter Jackie in southwestern Idaho.
