Longwood, FL (PRWEB) October 29, 2009
Growing up in small town Missouri, Kristine Dobbs grappled with many adversities from a very early age. At six years old, her stepfather began sexually, physically, and emotionally abusing both her and her sister. At 13, her stepfather finally went to prison and at 17 her twin brother was murdered. She ran away shortly thereafter and discovered alcohol, sex, and prescription drugs. It was only when she found Jesus Christ that she realized the true meaning of Romans 8:28: "All things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and for those who are called according to His purpose." In There's a Light at the End of the Tunnel: And It's Not a Train! ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-086-9)--the author's new Xulon Press release--readers will be inspired by her personal testimony to forgive and take hold of the relief that can be found in Jesus Christ.
"I hope readers will gain a sense of how to deal with the unavoidable things in this world with a sense of love and forgiveness that will lead them to ultimate freedom, peace, and a personal relationship with God," Dobbs says. "For those who have that relationship already, I hope to inspire to change the way they see others and the world."
Written from the author's personal experience, the book contains a powerful testimony that she believes God wants her to share with the world. "It shows victims a different way to look at their lives," she explains. "It enables people to see that they have ownership over their actions and reactions. It inspires the reader to forgive and to take hold of the relief that can be found in Jesus Christ."
