From Victim to Victory with BJ Garrett

Posted in

One of our newest team members and a Redemption Press author, BJ Garrett, joins us today to speak to how God guided her from a life of sexual exploitation into one of ministry and onto the Redemption Press team.

Key Ideas:

  • Can God redeem a life of sexual abuse?
  • How does God help us move forward?
  • How can we move on from traumatic pasts?

BJ Garrett Quotes

“My mom traded me for groceries when I was 11 or 12 years old. I was often the payment for whatever we needed.”

“Praise the Lord, He had another plan.”

“The Lord rescued me—literally—from the pit and drew me out and saved my life, saved my husband, saved my children…we surrendered into full time ministry and now here we are!”

Meet the Publisher

I've been around Christian publishing since 1987 when I helped our ministry self-publish an important resource for Vietnam veterans and their families. That book went on to be picked up by a royalty publisher and has since sold over 250,000 copies with a million in print.

I'm glad you're here…stop by often and take advantage of all the information we make available.
