“The Truth About the Church”: a gripping account that opens the eyes of the readers for them to see the events that are happening in today’s church. “The Truth About the Church” is the creation of published author Patricia Bakies, a psychiatric nurse practitioner who specializes in mental health. She is devoted to helping individuals with mental health and substance abuse issues. Patricia creates real-life scenarios with valuable lessons to empower her readers to overcome an array of challenges.

Bakies writes, “Sarah Pierce is a curious sixteen-year-old growing up in a poor, dysfunctional family. Living in Ohio now with her grandmother, Sarah can’t help but notice the big beautiful stone church across the street. Her Mama always told her, ‘We are bred to be no church people.’ People have done bad things in their family, and besides, she doesn’t even own any of those fancy church clothes people wear. Sarah spent the last six years caring for and protecting her little sister, Hailey. Settled now in Ohio, there was something about the big stone building that caught her attention. Sarah knew it was too late for her to be ‘church people,’ but was it possible there was still a chance God would accept her little sister? One day Sarah walked right inside the church just to have a quick look, but she couldn’t handle the new world she just entered and ran out as fast as she could. Deep down, Sarah knew her Mama was right; they had no business being in church. The days to come after that first church visit are filled with challenges, anxiety, disappointments, and truths about God and the church Sarah never even imagined. Now Sarah has a decision to make, the most important decision of her life. Will she go back in?”
