author to speak at Porter Library, Greenfield

Ramonica Wallace Jackson
A local author will be speaking and answering questions about her new book from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 8, at the Dr. Nathan Porter Library located on Front Street in Greenfield. Greenfield author Ramonica Wallace Jackson says that her book, titled “God Can Fix What Sin Destroys,” tells about how drug use affects the children of drug users. She describes her book as follows: “I was inspired to write this book to tell our story, praying that it will help change another life. Nearly four years ago the Lord added two small little boys to our home. We have faced many trials and sorrows dealing with meth-addicted children. I was not aware of how meth would affect an unborn child, until I saw the rage-fits first hand. The Lord has given me a burden for people that are on the path of destruction due to drugs. We all hear stories about how drugs affect those people that choose to use. However, have we forgotten about the children born into these meth environments and also how it affects the families that take these children into their homes? I believe that people should know how the choices we make in our lives are certainly going to affect someone else’s life. “In writing ‘God Can Fix What Sin Destroys,’ I hope to accomplish, getting my book donated to rehab facilities, jails, prisons and even schools and churches, as well as in every home. This story isn’t just for those that use drugs. This story is for everyone. Lives need to be changed. It is going to take God to speak to the hearts of people, in order for our children to grow up in a safer environment. And we as Christians need to pray continually. “So far, the impact that my book has had on readers is positive. People come up to me with tears in their eyes, thanking me for the honesty and the true emotions. I have calls coming in from South Carolina, people in similar situations with questions about what to do. This story has forever changed my family’s life. However, it is because of this story that I have written this book. It is by the grace of God that I am today what I am. I thank the Lord for the blessings that He bestows on my family each day.” Jackson says that she will have copies of her book available during the book signing at the Dr. Nathan Porter Library. “Hope to see you there,” Jackson said. “In case you have plans and you cannot be present, please order my book online at bn.com or amazon.com or even feel free to give me a call at (270) 236-4098 to order from me, send $15 to P.O. Box 190, Samburg, TN 38254, and I will personally sign and mail you a book.” “Buy my book, grab a box of tissue and enjoy! I pray that my message touches every heart and every life!” For more information about arranging for speaking engagements, book signings, or comments about the book, contact Ramonica Jackson at hrdd@bellsouth.net or call (270) 236-4098. wcp 10-28-08
