Xulon author Judith Doxey has a message to share with the world in her new book, We Are the Branches (paperback). "It isn't a new message, abut a renewing message," she says of the book, which is primarily composed of autobiographical poems and stories in addition to God's own words from Scripture. The message she shares--that the truth is still the truth whether you believe it or not--will encourage readers to open their minds to the truth they may have been conditioned to disbelieve or have walked away from.
Says Doxey, "I hope believers will be touched, inspired, edified, encouraged, and challenged to grow closer to God and trust Him in every situation. I hope non-believers will be challenged to open their minds to Jesus and give Him a chance, as I was once challenged to do. I want them to see how I felt just like them as an unbeliever, how wrong I was, that I've seen both sides now, and what it's like to be truly free."
A Christian for the past 25 years, the author found her way through a multitude of out of the ordinary experiences, including losing a child, two failed infant adoptions, foster parenting troubled boys, adopting an extremely abused older child, caring for aging parents, and seeing her children become Christians and find Christian spouses. Throughout it all, says Doxey, God was there. Like others, she could have chosen to walk away, but instead she chose to open herself up to a miracle and is still reaping the rewards of that decision even today. She hopes her book will encourage readers to do the same and that it will "relate to everyone in our society and touch people's hearts."
