HAMMOND, La. – Dorothy Elowise Carter delivers a message of hope and inspiration with her new poetry and short writing collections, “Me Too” (published by Xlibris), a testament to her faith and her relationship with God, which helped her make sense of the many issues in her life, such as childhood molestation, spousal abuse and low self-esteem, amid other issues and disappointments.
She reflects on her shortcomings and mistakes in life and shares how God strengthened her to overcome. She is also candid about some of her present struggles as well and her hopes in God for complete healing. Carter states that in doing this she is in accordance with James 5:16, which reads, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
Carter creates a redemptive duality with her work, for as readers see and understand her struggles, a process the author likens to praying for her healing, likewise by baring her scars and showing her audience – particularly those undergoing their own hardships – that they are not alone, Carter also prays for them to be healed as well.
“This book was written to help you overcome and heal. Therefore, as you read these pages, allow the Holy Spirit to do his work.” Carter says, offering a gift to guide others in their own healing process.
