“I’m so miserable without you, it’s almost like you’re here.” Song by Billy Ray Cyrus

I’ve heard it said many times that really good women are drawn to really bad men.  Or maybe we ch 12 p 195are up for the big lessons in life.  Well I got mine when I married and three months later he decided he was in love with someone else.  At the time, I thought that was the worst thing that ever happened to me.  Now I know it is the best gift I have ever received.  From that experience, I received an opportunity to grow tremendously.   And I am no longer married to a jerk.  And I wrote a book about it – Too Much Gold to Flush: The Gift of Infidelity. 

One half of the selling price of this book goes to women’s shelters.  Why?  Because the women who seek refuge in shelters have been through a horrific experience.  I’m sure that everyone one of them on some level wonders why God has such a high opinion of their tolerance and how painful the best will turn out to be.

Intensive therapy is needed to heal from the heinous experiences that prompt a woman to seek book_center1refuge in a woman’s shelter.  Thankfully, our country has stepped up to fill the need of offering shelter to women who find themselves in this situation.  Housing, feeding, and caring for abused women and their children is expensive.  That’s where you come in.  Support women who are in shelters by buying my book Too Much Gold to Flush.  One half of the purchase price goes to the shelter you designate.  Here is a link where you can purchase that now.

Or you may know of a group who would like to participate in the Pay It Forward Book Club. Click here for details.
