“Trust is not an obsession, it's an extension of love. When we truly love someone, we give them our heart to hold in their hands. And when that love is returned, that very trust is balm to our souls.”
Julie Lessman

“Pray that God is the most important thing in your life, so much so that hurting him wold hurt you. When that happens, and your choices line up with his, it produces an amazing ripple effect of blessings--in your life, that of your family, and for the man you eventually marry.”
Julie Lessman, A Passion Denied

“He's waiting to love you like you've never been loved before.”
Julie Lessman, A Hope Undaunted

First, I am blessed that goodreads affords us the opportunity to be friends. Therefore, I wanted to invite you as a fan and request your support for my book.

Many are being healed from the pages of this book. I thank God that I did not allow my fears to hinder my progress to get this book out. Transparency is the antidote that has touched several. My journey is to help others through the healing process--an intrepid life's journey.

Please help me get this book out to others by recommending it and spreading the word.

Please subscribe to my webpage www.tcarterministries.com

Thank you for all of your support
