From distress to doctor. From tribulations to teacher. This is the race that Beverly Crockett has run thus far. In her first book, Just Run The Race, Crockett reflects on her personal experiences and reveals the lessons that she has learned along the way. She lets her trials as a teenager inspire her unto tenacity, and she allows her struggles as a young wife and subsequentially a single mother teach her about the significance of personal strength. But, she caps it all when she shows the reward of forgetting those things which are behind as she relates her years in college and becoming a minister.

Now these questions are flooding my very soul. Why did I have to experience the death of my Mother to lung cancer just about a year and a half later, when my daughter was a mere six months old? I was just a child Lord, why did I have to go through all of that drama? Why did I find myself in one abusive relationship after another?
Sometimes I would find myself in situations where my self-esteem was so low that l became well acquainted with the dirt, the trash, the rocks and many other things that slithered along the earth level. I came from a “good” family; my grandmother was a staunch, strict Christian woman who “lived” at the church. Hadn’t she prayed for me while she was there singing songs of Zion?
