Journey to becoming is an interesting tale of a young lady that can be likened to the transformation of a moth to a butterfly through her 8 years in the study of Medicine and Surgery. She expatiates on the processes leading to her radical change and how the same wisdom she garnered can be applied today to help you evolve to a higher, more definite version of yourself every single day. The book also shows how God uses our everyday situations to teach us eternal lessons that leave us transformed for ever. Nothing is static, you are constantly on a journey to becoming…. OWN IT!!
