Jasmine Taylor-a survivor of sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse, poverty, and the foster care system-worked hard and diligently to overcome her past. On the surface, she seems perfect. She's beautiful, confident, poised, and educated with a successful, high-powered career. Emotionally, she's far from perfect. Haunted by memories of her past, she struggles to navigate life and relationships through her fog of pain and skepticism. Having internalized her abuse as a reflection of her self-worth, she believes that she is unlovable and unworthy of caring and compassion and willfully isolates herself socially. Just as she begins to let her guard down, her world is turned upside down by betrayal and tragedy reminiscent of her childhood, and the wall that she built between herself and the rest of the world works to her detriment. On her own, her strong will and mental fortitude are not enough to fight her latest battles. As her life falls apart and she hits rock bottom, she discovers the ultimate source of strength, begins her faithful journey to true love and healing, and gains a godly perspective on her struggles and life itself.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
LT Sutton has enjoyed careers in research engineering, education, and project management, but her experiences as an entrepreneur, marathoner, triathlete, author, and most importantly, wife and mother have been the most rewarding. She lives in the midwest with her family, with whom she shares a love for and faith in Jesus Christ.
Driven by her desire to inspire survivors of sexual abuse, rape, and fatherlessness, she wrote “Jasmine’s Journey to Jesus,” drawing from her own childhood and life experiences, and as well as her own faith, spiritual growth, and healing. Adopting Philippians 4:13 as her personal motto, she believes that no problem is too big for God, and hopes to inspire that sentiment in her writing. Though her story primarily aims to empower and encourage disadvantaged young women, she hopes that the message and gospel of Jesus Christ translates through the story, motivating and inspiring both men and women who read her book.
