Author Reveals How Strong Faith Brought Her to a Place of Victory

Share Article

New book chronicles God's ever-present miracles in the midst of tragedy.

After her son, Richard Jason Veitch, was falsely accused of felony murder (case# 2009-SU-R-50, Coweta County Courthouse in Newnan, Georgia), Xulon Press author Jackie Carpenter found the odds seemingly stacked against her: there was no hope, money was of no value, and she was rendered helpless before a jury of 12. But by simply waiting on a miracle from God, she was able to experience deliverance from her troubles--all in His perfect timing. In The Bridge: Between Cell Block A and a Miracle Is: Psalm 91 ($11.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-684-7; $19.99, hardcover, 978-1-61579-685-4), the author's new release, Carpenter details the actual events that took place before, during, and after the high-profile murder trial, giving readers a glimpse into the legal process, the utter helplessness endured by the family, and the strong faith that ultimately brought them to a place of victory.

"God is newsworthy, and God's miracles are something that you don't hear much about in the news today," the author says. "(Readers will learn they must) experience the torment in order to experience the miracle."

Carpenter, who says she is not a writer, credits God with the writing of this book and says that every word came from His inspiration. "This is His story that He demands to be told," she explains. "When you are going down for the last time [and there is] no hope in sight, [look to] Psalms 91:15. God was all we had, but God was all we needed. I'll shout it from the mountaintop: Thank You, Jesus! Anyone who witnesses this miracle will never be the same again!"

Jackie Carpenter currently resides in Newnan, Georgia.
