Publisher's Summary

One woman's fight to provide hope for the hopeless...
Seven ex-cons who changed her heart forever…
For Brenda Spahn, entrepreneur and businesswoman, wealth was a lifestyle - until a brush with the law threatened to send her to prison. In those dark moments, Brenda made a promise to God.
Spared incarceration, a renewed Brenda glimpsed into the lives of women serving time in one of the worst places in America - the JuliaTutwiler Prison for Women in Wetumpka, Alabama. What she saw prompted a God-inspired vision.
With a heart to help and a will that couldn't be crushed, Brenda fought the system and overcame tremendous obstacles to take ex-cons into her home and help them navigate the alien world of life on the outside.
This is the story of Brenda's journey from rags to riches to redemption. It's the story of the first unlikely year of her "Whole Way House" and of the extraordinary lives of the first seven women who came to call her "Miss Brenda". It's a story that testifies to the power of faith and how God changes hearts every day.

Grace, God . . . and Giving Back

I was so happy to find this book about the Loveladies. Our women's ministry at church collects little "goodies" for the Loveladies each year for their Christmas luncheon, so that each can have a little package at their table, just for them. You see, our church is in North Alabama, about an hour and a half from Birmingham, where the Loveladies Ministry is. Some of our own women have gone to the program there, which is now open to women suffering from abuse, addiction, and other trauma, not just parolees. I had to laugh at some of the reviews, which were skeptical about Miss Brenda . . . and her tax business, arrest and her husband's bankruptcy . . . there but for the grace of God go we . . . she put it all out there, not hiding a thing . . . so if people want to judge, then let them . . . and let them hang their own dirty panties out on the line for all to see . . . I am so very thankful that we serve a God that is NOT like that, for we'd all be doomed . . . doomed to fail . . . doomed to depression . . . doomed to being alone . . . and doomed to HELL . . . thank you, Jesus . . . for your mercy and grace . . . I laughed and cried during this book . . . nothing was hidden, it was all laid bare, and I think that's what it takes . . . otherwise it can't be fully cleansed out of our systems . . . thank you, Miss Brenda for being real with these women . . . and with all of us . . . BRAVO!!! This is a book for everyone to listen to . . . and then feel JOY!

Just touched my heart deeply.

amazing how God calls us-even when it doesn't seem to include our family or what we are accustomed to. Love that Brenda's family finally all seem to have fallen in love with what she does!
