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.

Ava seeks spiritual guidance from Dr. Glory Moses. Through God’s Word, there is a glimpse of hope for a restored friendship, and a newfound love for the woman she is. In addition, a man she meets at the counseling center offers her a glimpse of what could be if she lines up with God’s will for her life. Will Ava be able to overcome her insecurities and step into the life God plans for her, or will she continue to self-destruct?

Book Takeaway:

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.
