I am a contributing author to this compilation series of short stories. Hurricane Bob is a heartwarming, true story of how God can restore and redeem. Sometimes with a sense of humor.
At seventeen Jeanne was trafficked into the adult entertainment industry as an exotic dancer. She spent over two decades in the dark world of sex, drugs and alcohol. All attempts to find her way out failed. Then God showed up, and the battle began.
Escaping the clutches of her volatile mother, a fourteen, year old girl buys a bus ticket to Florida and runs away from home. She soon meets a young man, becomes pregnant, and marries. After suffering a miscarriage at the hands of her abusive new husband, she becomes pregnant again. Determined to save the unborn child and herself, she travels to New England.
Shortly after giving birth, she meets a woman who recruits young girls into the adult entertainment industry as an exotic dancer. At seventeen, she is catapulted to stardom in the dark world of sex, drugs, and alcohol. Two decades later, God snatches her out of the devil’s playground, setting her on a path of redemption, recovery, and faith. She battles spiritual warfare, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, hurricanes, cancer, and failed relationships. She is stripped of everything during her Christian walk - only to have God restore it all and more.
Where art thou Oh Lord, My spirit thirsts for you, but the well is dry. I danced to the tune the enemy set forth until the day you called me out. You set my feet on a righteous path where I will walk all the rest of my days. I will sing your praise, Oh Lord, and hope those who dance in darkness will long for rescue too.
May they hear your voice, O Lord, and know for certain it's you.
My passion to share with others how I found my way out of the sex industry, while sustaining my faith against extraordinary odds, has become the driving force behind this book. I hope to inspire courage, strength, hope and faith in others, through my life experience.
