Permanent Resident at the Purse Table
By Keisha Bass
If you’re a size six, you dance. If you’re Ava Alexander, you watch the purses while your girlfriends dance. Each man that passes her by takes a little of her self-esteem. After escaping a mentally abusive relationship, she promises God she will wait on Him to bring her the right man. And she means it—until Ishmael. When her best friend’s fiancé throws a few compliments her way, she travels down the path of betrayal. Ava’s choice strains her friendship and sends her into a depression.
Embrace who God made you to be and appreciate the uniqueness you bring to this world. Live to please God and not people.
Why the author wrote this book:
I wrote this book because I see a need for women that struggle with low self-esteem, or a poor self-image, like myself, to realize who they are in Christ. No matter what the world or society says about how you're supposed to look, how much you're supposed to weigh, or what you're supposed to do, God's purpose for you is greater. As women, we need to realize that we are made in His image and for the purpose He has for our life. I want all people, especially women, to love who God made them to be. It can be a daily struggle, but the result is so worth it and can catapult you to the next level in your spiritual, physical, and mental life when you truly get to a place of loving yourself and your uniqueness.
