Who Am I Anyway?
Who Am I Anyway? Why Am I Here? is one woman’s compelling story of hope and redemption, and most important of all, forgiveness of self and of others.
In Who Am I Anyway? Why Am I Here? Bobbett chronicles a painful past: growing up on a dairy farm with five siblings, an angry father and frustrated mother, life was not easy; her first encounter with drugs as a freshman; meeting the love of her life, Marlin, at the end of eighth grade; pregnant at 16 and remorsefully having an abortion; Marlin and Bobbett marrying at age 21 and pregnant three months later; and on-going marital crisis and countless complications. Through it all, she fought a drug dependency of cocaine and a crank, and prayed to God about the meaning of her life.
Bobbett came to the end of herself; as difficult as things were, she didn’t want to lose her husband and her two sons. Bobbett made the choice to become clean. She was healed and set free by the love of God and a personal encounter with Christ.
“At first, I wrote my story just for me, in hopes that somehow through writing it, I would find healing in my heart and soul. It wasn’t intended to be published, but God kept tugging at my heart to share it with the world,” says Bobbett. “My life on the dairy had molded an innocent child into a hard-working, frightened, and confused but giving person. The more I gave, the more I thought someone might notice me. So many frightened children grow up in an unstable, unloving world. My message is to change this somehow.”

I liked the book " Who am i? Why Am I here" very much. I was the middle child and was also from a large family of 5 girls a 1 boy. I could truly relate to her story especially during the early years because of a lot of hard work at such a early age. I, like her was raised on a farm, but not a dairy farm. I admire her so very much for telling her story. I recommend this book to anyone because of her being so truthful and down to earth and will pass it around to anyone that will take it and read it. Most but not least. I also loved the bible verses that backed her story and her book up.
Thank you Bobbett.
I'm so glad I read this book! It gave me a new perspective on people struggling with addiction. I highly recommend this book!
Truly amazing story of how God work's his miracles in each every one of us. Author speaks from the heart and is not afraid to lay everything out for you, it's up to you accept the gift that's offered. A must read for anyone.
Wonderful story, full of real raw life adventures. It put me right there with her. I love how true she is to herself and how she puts love of God in control, which got her to where she is today.
It's a must read!
