After finding herself unprotected, unloved, and unwanted by a sexually abusive father and an absent mother, author B. J. Garrett’s search for self-worth leads to sexual promiscuity and unplanned pregnancies. It’s not until losing everything to the blaze of a house fire that BJ’s life takes a turn toward a God whose love is pure.
Written with soul-searching vulnerability, Unwanted No More reminds you that no matter how ugly your past is, you can experience unconditional love in a relationship with Jesus.

“Often times I feel like Christianity is watered down and altered to fit whatever purpose the author wants it to. I end up putting the book down indefinitely or giving them away because I simply cannot relate.
That was not the case with this book! BJ Garrett writes with raw honesty and presents her transformation in a realistic and inspiring way. I couldn’t put this book down and could relate to her in many regards. Her bravery is encouraging and her spirit never quits. She opened my heart to possibilities and has drawn me into her story with such admiration for her perseverance.”
BJ pulls you into her story and you feel her pain, get wrapped up in her experiences, and cheer from the sidelines for her triumphs and transformation.”
“The words on the page paint such a vivid picture that I could see and feel every scene as if I was watching it unfold. It is raw and real and one of the most honest autobiographical books I have ever read.”
