Encourages readers that true happiness can only be found in Jesus

Marilyn Hayes Phillips

I have once again found peace and grace in Jesus Christ

Marilyn Hayes Phillips’ new book A Wild Olive Shoot ($11.99, paperback, 9781545605196; $5.99, eBook, 9781545605202) is a painfully honest memoir that traces the author's rural beginnings to international business success, but a life based on lies and lived for herself, until guided by Jesus Christ that brought true joy and peace. This book contains a fascinating depiction of an interesting life, one that spans rural dirt poor Minnesota beginnings to life in Hollywood with a paranoid-schizophrenic actor husband to business success as a marketing manager in Italy. The author shares that alignment with God's purpose for one's individual life, and accepting the peaceful submission to the truth of Jesus Christ is the sure way to true joy in this earthy life.

Phillips writes, “I have once again found peace and grace in Jesus Christ, friend of my childhood, despite wayward wandering down a worldly path for over 40 years. I became ensnared in New Age "religion" that created only relationship unhappiness and bad decisions. It was the truth of Jesus that was my bedrock and with the help of a God-given husband, returned to the Truth of Jesus.     I hope readers will understand that there is peace and hope in reconciliation with Jesus, despite how much one follows the false gods of self, ambition, riches, and all that the world promises will bring happiness.”

Marilyn Hayes Phillip’s went from a one-room schoolhouse education to Marketing Director at a large U.S. corporations and Strategy Director at leading international ad agencies.
