Love can make us blind. When Stephanie Whitmore first set eyes on Donnie Johnson, she became enamored with a man that had a passion for mentoring troubled youth. She respected his drive as he became a successful computer analyst and adored how he made her feel, helping her silence all of the negative thoughts she had been suppressing for years.
However, when Stephanie catches Donnie in a compromising situation, more than blood is spilled, as the dam of insidious thoughts that she held back begins to consume her and tempt her to go down a path she wouldn’t be able to survive.
Pastor Daniel Winston faithfully followed the plan that God had for his life. Though he felt satisfied in his career, he stayed in prayer, hoping that he would meet the woman that God had for him.
When Stephanie rushed into his church, covered in blood, Daniel stepped into duty to help and guide this woman on the brink of losing everything. As their hands touched, he experienced a spark that would ignite a fire in his heart so deep, he almost became blind to her issues and couldn’t determine if he was trying to help her or himself. But when God is involved, nothing is as it seems, and with His plans, the road to redemption may be rough, but the results are so fulfilling.
Which five words best describe Broken Spirit? Edgy Christian, realistic, sexual, broken, wounded
Can you share one highlight from the book?
I love the opening scene when Stephanie catches her fiance in the act with another woman. When she realized that he was making love to another woman on their favorite song, she lost control.
What is the purpose of this book?
I wanted people to understand that God loves us so much that when we seek Him out and repent, he opens doors to many possibilities. I wanted readers to understand that nothing we do can stop God from loving us and that if we allow Him, he will direct our path. He already has a plan for us and a map for our lives; it is up to us to allow His will to work for us.
Are there themes that you find turn up again and again in your work?
Again, I believe God wanted me to highlight mental illness. It is a problem in our community, and we don’t address it, and usually, it is pushed under the rug until something happens so terrible it brings the topic to the surface.
Which character or part of the book was the most fun to write?
I loved writing about Daniel. He was a good pastor, lonely but not allowing anything or anyone to make him stumble from God’s grace.
Can you tell us something that even your most loyal fans may not know about you?
I cry when I am writing about love. It moves me.
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
I love writing about Christians. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God. I want readers to know though we may fall, God will always pick us up if we allow Him to do so.
