Broken Chains

Patrick Doc Nave

My life seemed more like a horror movie than anything close to reality. I was given my first beer at age three, by age five I had been sexually molested and trafficked for sex more times than I could count. I had run away from home several times by the age of five and my father was arrested for murder when I was eight. Those early years of life really painted a picture of hopelessness and tragedy and in the midst of it all I had to figure out if life was worth living at all? Then to make matters worse, my father escaped from prison and for the next several years we lived all over the country, changed our names three times and learned to live in a shroud of secrecy all while being pursued by the FBI and US Marshals.

We eventually landed in Miami where my father ended up becoming one of the Cocaine Cowboys of South Florida fame in the early 1980's. Throughout it all I was shot at, beat with a horse whip, learned to live as a homeless person eating out of trashbins and living in golf course trees. If anyone should have given up, it should have been me but somehow, God intervened in my life and kept me alive, in spite of me.

Broken Chains is the true story of a young boy who grew up with a father who was a drug dealing murderer and yet at the same time, was the youth leader in his local church as well. It is a story of trauma, abuse, hopelessness and finally, redemption. What Satan meant for evil God used for His glory and today, Doc is the co-founder of the world wide outreach Bikers Against Trafficking, a non-profit that seeks to eradicate human sex trafficking. This book is for those who have had less than a stellar life and who may even believe that there is no hope for them. Doc and Rainey believe that no matter what you did or what happened to you there is always hope for a better tomorrow.
