The untold story of how Lecrae's past nearly ruined his life--until he learned that the wounds we carry point to the healing and freedom we all desperately need.
When all you've suffered threatens to destroy your life, how do you get back to the truth you thought you believed?
I Am Restored is the shattering yet hope-filled story of how Lecrae faced the buried wounds of his past--sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression--and emerged more fully human than ever before. With remarkable transparency and vulnerability, Lecrae reveals how at the height of his professional success, his life was spinning out of control, driven by a past that he had never confronted and a religious perspective incapable of meeting the challenge.
In this powerful, deeply personal account, Lecrae provides an unflinching look at the personal and public spaces that are too often places of pain and heartache--culture, politics, family, church--and reminds us that letting go and forgiving is the birthplace for the life of creativity and freedom God has for us. In addition, he shares the transformational yet simple practices he uses daily for mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
I Am Restored is a hopeful, inspiring charge to embrace the lasting healing and restoration available now, because no matter what you've experienced, God is near, he hears, and he's not done with you yet.

Lecrae is a hip-hop artist, activist, author, and socially conscious voice of our time. In addition to earning accolades for his musical talent, he has gained wide recognition for maintaining a strong commitment to his faith and values. “More caught than taught” is how the artist describes his incredible journey that includes two GRAMMY awards; a history-making #1 and RIAA Gold certified album, Anomaly, the masterful 2014 offering which topped Billboard’s coveted Top 200 Albums chart; along with his recent single, “I’ll Find You,” which went Platinum in April 2020.
Lecrae continues to thoughtfully engage the culture, reeling off a New York Times bestseller, Unashamed, in 2016 and a memorable breakthrough spoken word performance at the BET Hip Hop Awards in Fall 2016. On the album All Things Work Together, Lecrae hinted he’s still mindful of the outsider role that’s enabled him to work the edges of hip-hop stardom but also aware of the world coming into his space. “I’ve already proven I’m part of the hip-hop narrative. On this album I took liberties,” he said.
Lecrae also helped found and serves on the board of Peace Preparatory Academy in Atlanta, GA, where he resides with his wife and three children.
