Lima has a quick, humorous wit, which keeps family home life with her husband and three children in a constant state of laughter and banter. Lima was born in Western Samoa, raised in South Auckland, New Zealand and now lives in Jakarta, Indonesia. Lima and her husband Craig played integral roles in pioneering a program to transform the lives of sexually exploited women, through rehabilitation and restoration back into the community. Lima has currently taken up a permanent spot in the corner booth of Starbucks and hopes to get a lifetime special of "Buy one, Get one Free."

You speak volumes on subjects that are almost taboo in pacific island families, encouraging those of us whom have shared similar journeys to open up and to speak up and that we are not alone. I look forward to the next book.

Grace Brought Me Here’ is a fantastic read that I wholeheartedly recommend. It’s a compelling account of one woman’s journey of self-discovery, which might turn out a real eye opener for you. It is thought-provoking, uplifting, and very personal. If you feel that you could use a friend right now, let Lima be the person.

The story of how grace lifted her out from her previous life has given me hope - the same power, the same God, the same grace will lift me up from my previous life as well. Touching & blunt story wrapped in emotions and truth - I highly recommend this book for those who are looking for light at the end of the tunnel.

Grace Brought Me Here
Grace Brought Me Here gives you a vulnerable and raw insight into Lima's compelling journey of grace. Lima retells her story with a great deal of transparency, authenticity, and courage, revealing some of her darkest and most profoundly heart wrenching moments of brokenness. Lima bravely shares stories of God's relentless pursuit of her, and courageously shines a light on the circumstances behind our dysfunctional, repetitive behaviors. Her story demonstrates how to recognize the importance of insignificant moments in our history that can lead us beyond our shame and pain, discovering strength and purpose. Lima's story has the power to encourage us to look back over the unexplored details of our own lives, to find new levels of healing that have been hiding in plain sight.
