Testimony of a Kept Woman
From Misery to Ministry Instead of the State Penitentiary
by Jan Newell-Byrd
The constable pulled an envelope from his inside coat pocket and placed it in my hand. Then he said to me, 'You have just been sued for divorce.' Without another word, he turned, walked away, got into his marked car, and drove off. I stood frozen at the front door of my home. I couldn't move. I was in an absolute state of shock.
After Jan escaped the physical and emotional abuse she had endured at the hands of her first husband, she was certain that her life was going to turn around. She married a pastor with whom she could work closely to build a ministry. Their congregation grew, and it truly seemed as if their lives were blessed. But slowly, the accusations began to surface that would shatter Jan's world and show her just how deep her husband's deceptions went. As she struggled to maintain her faith and dignity under the watchful eyes of the congregation, she was inwardly undergoing the greatest crisis of her life.
For any reader who has felt like God Almighty has packed up, moved away, and forgotten to leave His forwarding address, Jan's powerful Testimony of a Kept Woman will provide much-needed hope as she shows readers how even in her moment of crisis, God kept her close to Him. Her story of victory is proof that God has the perfect purpose for every pain and sorrow.
'You will read about a wife's suffering, feel her pain, share her joy, witness her victory, and finally, you will find encouragement.'

'Testimony of a Kept Woman provides the reader with an insider's view of living with domestic violence and emotional abuse while trying to live a 'normal' life. Jan's story is a journey from pain to redemption that leaps off the pages...It's a must read.'
