Linking up with Charlotte at Spiritual Sunday
"I know that the experiences of our lives, when we let God use them, become the mysterious and perfect preparation for the work He will give us to do.” Corrie Ten Boom
I never wanted to write and tell what happened...those horrible things that kept me living defeated...broken and alone. But in 2009 a writer encouraged me to tell to give others hope. Reluctantly I wrote...and told...and published...and even won an award - My story, what I lived and His touch that turned everything around. It's stunned me how the book has touched so many. I run empowerment groups now for women to show them that nothing is impossible to overcome...and if my life can change....so can theirs.
The director of The Ernie Hollands Ministry in Canada read my book. She asked that I consider giving it to women in prison. Many have broken lives and have experienced terrible traumas; they need hope to know their lives can change for the better. "Your book," she said. "shows that hope."
Ernie Hollands ministry will issue tax receipts to anyone sponsoring a book to a prisoner.
He's no fool to buy what he can never lose to see a treasure in soul.
