Well, Pam has decided to try her hand in the self publishing world, so I wanted to share this wonderful story she just released with as many people as care to take a look.
I have seen the many stages she went through with Lori's Redemption and I'll be the first to say this story went through the refiner's fire. Come take a look:
Lori Strickland has always been known as her father's "wild child" with no desire to change until she meets ex-bull-rider-turned-preacher Rafe Judson. Her attempts to change her wanton ways come to naught until she realizes redemption only comes with true repentance.
Rafe Judson made his way to the arena with a smile on his lips, a song in his heart, and the same old limp in his stride. An ex-bull-rider, he still loved everything about the rodeo…the scents—the hay, the horseflesh, the sweat—the excitement, the crowds. As a minister, he didn’t enjoy the accidents or the deaths. He could do without a lot of the language, too.
Remember where you came from old boy.
The thought brought with it a quick stab of conviction.
I remember, Lord.
Wasn’t so long ago he'd cussed and caroused along with the other cowboys. But all that changed with the accident that ended his career as a champion rodeo rider, but opened a whole new world to him, a world filled with faith and optimism.
Far cry from the cynical, bitter cowboy he once was.
What a wonderful, heart wrenching story this is!
And if Lori Strickland sounds familiar to you, she was introduced in Tempered Fire. If you liked Tempered Fire, you'll LOVE Lori's Redemption!
