Prejudice and mistrust hinders an ex-con, drug addict’s new beginning. Could it be that she's not Worth Forgiving?
 
Worth Her Weight
 
How can a woman who gives to everyone but herself accept God’s love and healing when she believes she’s fat, unworthy, and unfixable? Can she be Worth Her Weight?

Check out all of these posts. Some feature giveaways. All offer some interesting tid-bits.



Prejudice and mistrust hinders an ex-con, drug addict’s new beginning.

 

The state of Texas releases from prison Katie Smith. Full of optimism, she sets out to get a job, rent her own place, and make a home for her eight-year-old daughter, but Katie gave away her daughter three years ago. She could use a friend, but her past choices threaten to doom her to continued failure.

 

Larry Pullman graduated from seminary with high marks, but the fact that he has no wife makes finding a preaching job almost impossible. It doesn’t help that running from God as a teenager gave him a past that he can’t undo. All he needs is an ex-con, drug addict messing up his life, but then why did God lead him to her? Or did He?

 

Isn’t it enough that Lacey Chandler gave her sister’s daughter a home? Does that mean she has to clean up Katie’s messes forever?

 

Could it be that Katie is not Worth Forgiving?

Winner of Worth Her Weight

The drawing for the book Worth Her Weight ended at midnight last night. My official "drawer of names," my husband, drew the name from the hat, or in my case, the bowl. LOL!

And, the winner is:

Blanche Manos

 
Big time congratulations, Blanche.
 
 
Thank you to those who gave their opinion on the excerpts and the book itself. I really appreciate it.
 
 
 
Worth Her Weight is the first in the Wharton Rock series and deals with food addition.
 
The second book in the series, Worth Forgiving, will release later this year, and portrays drug addiction and post-prison prejudice. 
 
I'm hard at work on the third in the series, possibly titled Worth Loving Again. This one will highlight deliverance from pornography.
 
 
Watch for further news on this site.
 
 
Again, a big congratulations to Blanche Manos for winning the free book. I will contact you by e-mail as to how you prefer receiving the free copy.
