Josephine Pelt is a longtime resident of Saginaw, Michigan, single mother of four adult children and grandmother of four who has served her church community as a greeter, Sunday School teacher, Bible study leader, and choir member, She has completed her new book “PJ’s Story: Life and Struggles of a Single Parent”: an inspiring portrait of courage and an unshakable belief in the power of God’s grace.

Josephine writes, “PJ’s story is not a story about rags to riches. It is a test of true love, faith, and strength! The story is about a young African American girl growing up in one of the poorest segregated parts of Southern Alabama. From the time she was a young girl, PJ had dreams of moving to the big city and becoming a successful businesswoman.

The story chronicles PJ’s struggling childhood homelife to adulthood and to single-parenthood. It tells of her journey to what she called the big-city life and all the struggles and trials she faced along the way trying to find love in the men she encountered in her life and to fulfill her dreams of success. Through all her struggles and trials, PJ had to learn the hard way that her quest to find love and success in people was not God’s plan for her life. She had to learn that in order to achieve those things, she had to put God first and follow his commands. She learned that love doesn’t come from getting God and people to love you, but it comes from you, getting to love God, people, and yourself.

PJ learned that it doesn’t matter if you have a two-parent home or a single-parent home. What matters is that you do your best to raise your children in the fear and admonition of the Lord, teaching them the value and the true meaning of love from God’s perspective. “No matter what path your children may take, always love them unconditionally and always pray for protection over their lives. In other words, ‘stand in the gap’ for your children and all your family members, and watch God work!”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Josephine Pelt’s engrossing book is the stirring story of a devoted single mother determined to provide the best life and guidance possible for her four children.
