About this Book
Gloria Lovejoy's memoir is an unabashed account of a troubled
woman's life in small town Pennsylvania coping with family strife, drug
abuse, alcoholism, promiscuity, and suicide attempts. Later came the
paranoid delusions, voices, demonic apparitions and hallucinations that
were the tell-tale signs of a diagnosed schizophrenic disorder. Many
rejected her and stigmatized her as crazy. She spent years in therapy
and in and out of mental institutions.
However, Gloria's Road
demonstrates that the mentally ill are not without salvation, that
schizophrenia is not outside of Christ's mercy and grace, and that the
power of God can work despite a comprised mental state. This book offers
evidence that the mentally ill have hope, and that through Christ, they
can live fulfilling and fruitful lives.

"Demons attacked my mind daily while I was at Harrisburg State Hospital.
Unfortunately, I was too young in the faith to know what to do about them. I
later learned from Chaplain Blackwell that I could take authority over the
demons in the name of Jesus."
