And God Still Loves Me ♥ Patti J. Smith ♥ Book Spotlight

And God Still Loves Me


A Journey From The Dark Abyss of Sin To God's Mercy


by Patti J. Smith

The term, “I’ve been to hell and back,” describes me to a tee and the hell was mostly self-inflicted. Even though I came from a loving, supportive and Christian family, I always felt like an outsider and “less than.”  That all changed when I discovered alcohol.  As a well-known A.A. speaker once said, “I was a duck until I took a drink, then turned into an eagle.”  Alcohol took away my moral compass and everything I learned growing up disappeared into the deep recesses of my mind.  My hedonistic lifestyle was one of perceived indestructibility generating carelessness and vulnerability.


And God Still Loves Me is my story.  A story of a lost soul who shunned God.  Of a journey of self-will that led to a life of excess with total disregard towards reputation, safety, or how it affected loved ones.  It is a story of hope, healing, and accepting that no matter the transgression, God is merciful and His love unconditional.



Patti J. Smith is a multi-genre author, penning Christian devotionals, light romance, and suspense.  She serves as Regional Coordinator for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and leads Rachel's Hope After-Abortion Healing Retreats in Oceanside, CA.

She also appears in two documentaries, “The Sidewalk Chronicles” and “Hush.” 

Patti and her husband, Michael, live in Vista, CA and have four beautiful granddaughters. Along with her pro-life ministry and writing, she enjoys blogging, reading and proudly admits to being a diehard Seattle Seahawks fan and Fantasy Football fanatic.

  3. Most women don’t know this... but even if a man is attracted to you or even says he loves you...

    ...chances are he still feels something is missing.

    Because there is a secret, emotional need hidden within his heart that he craves more than anything.

    And in most cases, is not being met.

    The problem is, if it’s not being met, his attention will inevitably wander until he finds a woman who can give it to him.

    Maybe one in a thousand women knows how to do this instinctively, and they usually rise to unbelievable levels of influence and fame.

    But most women, or men for that matter, don’t even know it exists.

    On the other hand, when you have this 1 simple secret...

    You won’t believe the shocking effect you have on the men in your life.

    Here’s a video I discovered that shows you exactly what I’m talking about:

    Here’s how: ==> He’ll give his heart to the first woman who does THIS... ]

    Best,

    Ana
