Nationwide — Atlanta, Georgia-based, Winner At Life Publishers has released HURT BY MY FATHER, HEALED BY GOD, an anthology by C. Joyce Farrar-Rosemon. Joyce shares how victims became over-achievers in this collection of compelling stories about real life people. She offers you a roadmap on ways to stop future inter-generational abuse, trauma, and victimization.
Included in HURT BY MY FATHER, HEALED BY GOD are: Tracy, the Goodbye Bitch- Healed from Lesbianism; Albert White Hat, Ashamed of Who I Am- Healed from American Genocide; Leila, The No Good Girl- Healed from Crack Cocaine, Rape, and Prostitution; and Pastor Donnie McClurkin, The Homosexual Addict- Healed from Rape and Homosexuality.
The majority of the individuals interviewed for the book grew up in fatherless homes and the others had fathers that were in and out of the home; however, the common denominator is they all rose like the phoenix from their fires of affliction.
According to the 2011 U.S. Census Bureau data, over 24 million, that is one out of every three (33 percent) children in America and nearly two in three (63 percent) African American children live in homes without the presence of a father. David Popenoe, a professor of sociology at Rutgers University, states that “the decline of fatherhood is a major force behind many of the most disturbing problems that plague American society: crime and delinquency; teenage pregnancy; deteriorating educational achievement; depression, substance abuse, and alienation among adolescents; and the growing number of women and children living in poverty.” Of alarming concern to Joyce is the disproportional overrepresentation of African-American children in each of these categories as the number of black fatherless homes steadily increases.
The people featured in her book HURT BY MY FATHER, HEALED BY GOD are real and their stories are true and candid… no holds barred. All of the stories in Joyce Farrar-Rosemon’s book are testaments that will be confirmed by the many generations of dysfunctional young people and adults who have lost hope because of their unprivileged birthrights.
In HURT BY MY FATHER, HEALED BY GOD, readers will discover how to: Deal with Abusive Authority Figures–Past and Present; Free Yourself from Memories of Abuse, Rape, Domestic Violence, and Addictive Behaviors; Achieve Your Goals and Leave the Emotional Baggage of Your Past Behind.
Joyce Farrar-Rosemon states, “Your past does not determine your future; you are not what others say you are. Start applying the principles within these pages and make your dreams come true today!” There are many self-help books written to ease the pain of abuse experienced by children of all cultures and persuasions at the hands of a so-called father or father-figure (biologically-related or not). However, Joyce pulls no punches because she lived it day after day, night after night. She spent much of her young life in a housing project, living in fear, turmoil and trauma, never knowing what to expect.

About the Author
Joyce Farrar-Rosemon is an authority on growing up in a dysfunctional family. She has not only survived, but has thrived after growing up in a home where domestic violence was rampart. She has overcome poverty, abuse, loneliness, low self-esteem, depression, job loss, and miscarriages.
HURT BY MY FATHER, HEALED BY GOD by C. Joyce Farrar-Rosemon offers hope and healing to those men, women and children who have been hurt by their fathers and authority figures. She explains how you can “use what you got” (as her mom would say) to come out on top. In 1992, she opened a real estate company with her husband’s help in her seventh month of pregnancy with only $10. This investment blossomed into a six figure income. Following the real estate demise in 2007, Joyce went from making six figures to no figures. Finally, after filling out over 400 applications she landed a job as a Certified Educator.
Joyce is a down to earth, highly acclaimed speaker who speaks frequently to non-profit groups, schools, colleges and churches. She has appeared in several newspapers, magazines, on radio and television, including The Geraldo at Large Show. Joyce and her husband Tillmon live in Atlanta, Georgia with their son David, who is a National Collegiate Scholar.

A Christian Manifesto for Making Six Figures.
