A 'Mistaken Identity' is a version of you that wasn't meant to be. A self-image distorted by past negative experiences. It's not your true self, but a reflection tarnished by hardship and pain. You are not defined by your past or this mistaken perception.

It's time to challenge this 'Mistaken Identity', confront your past, and reclaim your self-worth. You're a survivor with immense value, and it's time to meet your true self.

Your book has become like an honest friend to me. It understands me; it makes me cry, smile, feel humble, feel proud, reflect on myself, and think of others. We're all on different journeys, and my new 'paper' friend speaks to me differently than it does to other people. Isn't that the beauty of a good book? - Ruth

My Story

“Before I was born, I was set up for abuse.” So begins the story of Doug Dane, who suffered years of physical and sexual abuse that left him broken, scarred, and unable to form healthy relationships. At the age of thirty-five, headed for a second divorce in four years, Doug realized that he was living like a rat trapped in a maze—anxious, desperate, making the same wrong turns over and over again in a futile search for peace. That moment was the catalyst for beginning a journey to freedom, a journey that would take him through years of self-discovery through which he found the simple truth: You are not who other people say you are. You are free to form your own identity, free from the guilt and shame of the past. You are worthy of more! Doug felt there had to be a better way. He spent years trying to find it but discovered the better way wasn’t that hard and it didn’t have to take so long. Mistaken Identity is a pathway to personal freedom that can happen fast if you’ll let it.
