A Time to Heal
Arlene Cameron never wanted kids, yet she gave birth to four. Who does that? The government handing out checks per child must have made those labor pains a little easier. She was a Christian woman who treated her children like the enemy. Could attempted murder, abuse, neglect, and mental illness all happen in one family? Why, yes . . . yes, it could. Because in Arlene’s family, that’s exactly what happened! However, when she found Jesus for real, she decided she needed to make things right with them.
But it was too late. They hated her! Well, not Jesus, just the kids. She wanted a family reunion with children who didn’t feel they had a family. She would have to create one in order to reunite it. Her youngest ran away at seventeen never to return. Her only son just wants to know who he is. Her oldest wants answers, and her prized child has a secret that everyone knows but her!
Pain caused by jealousy, deceit, and betrayal had torn them apart, and the one person who could bring them back together is missing. It is known that there is a time for everything. Arlene had already used up her time to tear down and to kill when she destroyed her family. Now, however delusional it might be, she’s hoping it will be a time to build up and “a time to heal.”

A Sinner's Circle
They told her that God was the one who had her mother. She understood that in order to see her again, she would have to make his acquaintance. So she went to the first place she expected he would bechurch. However, what she found there was anything but God. Lies poured out to her from the pulpit that sounded so much like scripture the preachers even fooled themselves. Souls were being ministered to by fueling their bloodstreams with the kind of faith that took them so high they needed detox to come down. The choir director and the musicians asked her to sing songs in A minor while their hands were around her throat, choking the notes from her. It was said that her body was a temple not to be defiled while they used it for their own personal trash receptacles. She was told she was loved as they watched tears fall from her eyes because of the pain they were inflicting. All the while, the pastor lay in wait, preying on whomever he chose to devour. No . . . church was not where Karen found God. Church was where she learned to sin professionally. Round and round, she went spiraling into darkness. The God represented in church could not be the one she was in search of. He had to be bigger and better than this.
Sojourn with Karen as she relives her story. But know Gods voice and his Word for yourself so that you are never found caught up in A Sinners Circle.
