Barbie Smith, a mother, pastor, host of a weekly radio program, and writer, has completed her first book “Bedsores and Butterflies”: a gripping and potent true story on the strength it takes to find faith and religion through the trials and tribulations of life.

“Their stories, my stories, His Story. I share them with you here, that you may trade your ashes for beauty, and find the butterflies amongst the bedsores. Now, I believe it's time for me to fly,” said author Barbie Smith.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Barbie Smith’s poignant tale is a prolific work that journeys through the human emotions when dealing with strife and trying to find faith.

"I'm done peddling a Product I don't believe in anymore." Those were the author’s words in 2010, after three dizzying years as a hospice chaplain. The suffering and pain that she encountered shattered all of her Christian clichés and religious ideologies. It also shattered the walls of grief and pain she had erected in her own life, revealing a hidden life lived in abuse and victimization. Everything was shattered. Turns out, shattered was the place of holiness. It was in the shards that remained that the author found Faith. Rising like a Phoenix from the ashes, the purpose behind the pain gave every one of those stories not just meaning, but beauty and power.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “Bedsores and Butterflies” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
