Yes, she knew of Jesus Christ, given her religious childhood, but author Ashley Brooks can attest that she didn't know the Savior personally until turning thirty. Her autobiography, My Journey through Hell into Heaven on Earth, recounts how she lived a charmed childhood in Texas, but with a transition from homeschooling to public school, Ashley began experienced chronic anxiety that led to struggles with anxiety and depression. Trying to find her place in God's plan, she became entangled in an abusive relationship and started a prospering career in freelance modeling that led her down some dark paths. However, Ashley still felt lost in her life's direction; it wasn't until she called out to God one night that her true spiritual transformation began and she saw herself, and her dreams, through God's eyes. Ashley hopes others see the need for God in their lives and use their blessings to help others.
