Author Lela Holt, a mother, colon cancer survivor, and Christian, has completed her new book “Beauty out of Ashes”: a powerful story of strength, courage, and the power of faith to change even the most troubled lives.

Holt shares, “The object of the book is an attempt to reach out to those folks who have experienced some of the things Lela and her family endured. With ink and paper, she strives to wipe out the shameful feelings and negative stigma of molestation and poverty. Finally, the ultimate reason for writing the book is to encourage others to bring their secret to the surface. Perhaps shed some light on it and share their feelings with another. Then with head held high, walk away from the burden as a survivor! Above all, put your trust in God the Father, who promised to never leave you or forsake you.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Lela Holt’s account of her financially and emotionally impoverished childhood and her eventual discovery of her own inner strength though God’s grace is an inspiration to all.

Readers who wish to experience this potent work can purchase “Beauty out of Ashes” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
