“He Kan’t Kill Your Future” by Sharquent Webster was very moving…it is one of the best books I have read in a while of an account that’s true, emotional and so able to affect other people’s lives…as it is the life story of Ms. Webster, she transforms her reader back through her journey, starting with her childhood. Her father left her mother at an early age, and there was ten children total. As a result, not only did her mother have this huge responsibility to bear on her own, but she seemed to have a break-down of her own while doing it.
As a result, the streets raised Sharquent, and they were her family. They provided for her the love she wasn’t receiving at home, and, as most that live on the streets, she, somewhat, became part of the streets and took what they had to offer. She became addicted to PCP and crack, had three pregnancies in the process, and, eventually found herself wanting to get off of drugs more than anything. She was tired, her body was wore out, and she didn’t want what the streets had to offer anymore.
But, most importantly, she realized that Jesus loved her. He wanted better for her life, and, because of this, more than anything, she wanted to live for Him.
“He Kan’t Kill Your Future” is a wonderful autobiographical account of a young woman whose life started out not so good, but ended up wonderful. It wasn’t easy, but she decided to surrender her all to Jesus, and He took care of everything else from there. Personally, I really appreciate Ms. Webster writing and sharing this part of her life. I can just imagine how difficult it was, but I really believe that her story will touch someone’s life.
I give it 5 stars.
