Winner of the "Indie Book of the Day" award and Honorable Mention for non-fiction humor in the "Readers' Favorite" Contest.

Innocence Stolen, Hope Restored . . . After Sarah is raped at age four, her life is plunged into confusion and shame. Her teenage years are filled with self-hatred as she faces parental neglect, emotional abuse, bullying, and sexual harassment. Sarah desperately needs love and affection. Instead of receiving it in a healthy way, she cries out for help through alcohol abuse, drugs, a series of boyfriends, self-injury, and multiple suicide attempts. At times, it seems no one notices or cares. Through it all, God relentlessly pursues Sarah's heart. What will it take for Sarah to hear His voice and realize that she is a precious and beloved child of God? Innocence Stolen, Hope Restored will break your heart and fill you with compassion for those suffering in silence from self-injury. Sarah's story is all too relevant for today's youth. Two million cases of self-injury among teenage girls are reported every year, and more than half of all self-injurers have been sexually abused. One out of every eleven teens attempts suicide each year. Sarah's story is a testimony to the power of God's love to heal and transform shattered lives. Will you hear the cries of the broken and point them toward the only One who can set them free?

After closing my Real Estate Company, I was searching for any easy, no stress business to start. I didn't want huge overhead, and having to work 80 hour weeks. I already had a full time job, and wanted to supplement my income without losing time from my family. Selling online had its appeal. I read several books on the topic. Some were very well written, and others filled my head on how I could be a millionaire. Although some of the books were great motivators, they didn't make me a millionaire. I wrote this book to help you start your first online store with realistic outlooks. Once the store is set up, it will not demand much of your time, or take you away from your family. Since the startup cost is low, you can take the skills that you learned from opening your first online store, and open up several more. Opening an online reseller store will not make you instantly rich, but it will be a nice supplement to your income.
